Start by making the crumble topping. In a large bowl, rub together the sugar, ground almonds and flour until you have a mixture resembling fine breadcrumbs. Set aside
3
Dice the butter and rub into the flour and sugar mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs, taking care not to make the crumbs too fine
  • 125g of butter, cold
4
Add the flaked almonds, nibbed hazelnuts and nutmeg and mix together. Reserve in the fridge until required

Top, tail and wash the gooseberries. Place the gooseberries, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon in an ovenproof dish and cover with crumble mix

Place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes. The crumble should be golden brown and the filling should be bubbling when ready

Meanwhile, for the custard, combine the cream, milk and vanilla pod in a large pan and bring to the boil
  • 350ml of double cream
  • 350ml of full-fat milk
