Deborah is the Kitchen Supervisor for three of our Early Years' services in Exeter - Beacon Nursery, Cedars Pre School and Whipton Children’s Centre. She uses the food to teach the children some basic cooking and baking skills.

Deborah says, "This crumble is a pudding which I adapt to reflect the change in seasons."

"I have used a selection of British soft fruit which are currently at their best alongside blueberries which are plentiful and cheap. This pudding I call Beacon Berry Crumble! It's delicious served warm with custard or a dollop of natural yoghurt."

100g Plain Flour
50g Soft Margarine
30g Caster Sugar
20g Porridge Oats
