We probably all agree that dessert is the best part of eating out…
Britain has a deep-routed love for puddings but when it comes to naming the best, one dish came out on top.
In a poll conducted by Olive Magazine, the humble apple crumble took the title of Britain’s favourite pudding.
A classic recipe an apple crumble usually consists of some slowly stewed apples topped with a sweet, crunchy crumble topping -usually made from flour, butter and sugar but nuts and oats are occasionally added too.

Out of 1,400 people, 18 per cent voted for crumble as the winning dessert but the competition was tough.
Following in a close second place was the deliciously indulgent sticky toffee pudding, which had 12 per cent of the vote, and in third place was another retro-classic – bread and butter pudding, with 11 per cent.
The survey also revealed the most-hated desserts list, and it may cause some controversy… Top of the list was Tapioca, a dish that is similar to rice pudding and popular in South America.
Over 30 per cent of the participants voted this as their least favourite pudding.
