This gloomy weather makes me hungry. Not hungry enough to have that salad in the fridge, mind you, but hungry nonetheless. It's a hunger that needs something very specific to quash it. Something homely and warming, sweet and crumbly, and definitely not a salad. Have you guessed?

That's right. I've got a hankering for some crumble. Apple, rhubarb, strawberry – you name it. Give me some sweet, warm fruit, add a crumbly topping and some ice cream (or custard!) and I will be sated.

I know I'm not alone in this. So, in the spirit of sharing the love, and providing some solace from the bleakness, I've tracked down some pretty special crumbles to keep us going until Spring. My mission? To cure your tummy rumbles one crumble at a time. 

1. Apple & Rhubarb Crumble | Salt 
A classic combo, done beautifully. This is a no-brainer.
