This Week: Kirsten's Extra Thick and Extra Crunchy Oatie Bramley Crumble

Hi, its Kirsten here, Tree2mydoor's Customer Service Manager, this week it's my turn to have a go with the recipes. Whilst visiting some friends in Cheltenham last weekend they very kindly let me pinch a few apples from their Bramley Apple tree to make my crumble with. I have enlisted the help of my twin nephews Remi and Ethan for making this video also! I hope you enjoy my video and even more - enjoy making my extra thick and crunchy Bramley Crumble. x
