Crumble is a staple in our household. I have two hungry teenagers so a crumble never lasts long. Every crumble turns out a little differently depending upon the fruits in season. I like to combine apples with other fruits, but I don’t only use apples. My crumbles can have blueberries, peaches, rhubarb, raspberries, whatever strikes my fancy, I’ll adjust the sugar slightly for sweeter or tarter ingredients. The key to a great crumble is a crispy topping and over the years, I have refined and perfected this one…
5 peeled, cored and chopped apples
2 cups raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix together the fruit filling and place in a ceramic or glass pie dish.
Mix together topping ingredients and sprinkle over fruit layer.
Bake at 180°C or 350°F for 55-60 minutes.
The topping should be crispy and toasted.
Serve warm with whipped cream.
While in my opinion, raspberries make everything more delicious, almost any fruit can be substituted. This crumble is a very forgiving recipe so the ingredients can be adapted according to availability and don’t worry too much about the precise amounts. Double the sugars for a rhubarb crumble and experiment to find your favorite combinations!
