Tonight my wife made that greatest of great desserts, bramble crumble. Packed with the hard won blackberries from our annual hunt (See The Great Bramble Hunt), covered with a topping that was so full of flour, butter and sugar that it ought to carry an “instant coronary” health warning, and accompanied by a large dollop of Cream O’ Galloway’s finest Luxury Vanilla Ice-Cream, I was truly in a state of ecstasy.
Over the past several months we have been extremely good with our healthy eating regime. And I have come to love eating large quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables. Of course we have had the occasional sweet treat and sporadic excess, but nothing comes close to the utter over-indulgence of the dark fruity, creamy, buttery, sweetness that is Maggie’s bramble crumble.
And it was soooooooooooo damned good.
I am stuffed, feel slightly sick, but thoroughly satisfied. Maybe in another 12 months I can have another one…
