I think I like anything with a crumble on it. I happen to love cinnamon, so that always goes into whatever crumble topping I'm making. You could probably put a crumble on an old shoe, and I'd eat it.
I might try that, see if you do!!
With what you said in baked into it.

I was looking at the ingredient just now... We do our crumbles slightly differently, even with Bramleys. The sugar (usually demerara) goes into the crumble mixture not the fruit!
Demerara mixed into the crumble mixture would be yummy. I think the lemon and apple would be too sharp without any sugar though.

my husband comes from a family that didn't use sugar much. I have a niece (who is now 21?) who I have seen take a lemon out of the fruit bowl, peel it as though it was an orange and eat it. straight up. nothing added. And she did it as though it was perfectly normal.
