My hubby and I share one common interest. We both love food, especially dessert. Both of us get very excited when it comes to chatting about dessert. We used to be die-hard fans for desserts before our son came into the picture. Thereafter, our eating habits changed to a more health-conscious regime, as well as eating everything in moderation. That’s why I prefer to bake bread over cakes or making sweet desserts for my family. It’s only occaionally that I made desserts to satisfy our craving. Even then, it’s only in a small batch so as to refrain my family from over-eating.
As one of the great British puddings, crumble originated in Britain during World War II. When my hubby first requested that I try making fruit crumble, I dismissed it as another sweet dessert. It was only later that I changed my mind after seeing an oaty fruit crumble recipe in my favourite cookbook (Children’s healthy and fun cookbook – one of the cookbooks I used frequently because of its interesting yet healthy recipes). Apart from using fresh fruits, the recipe gives this traditional dish a healthy twist by adding oats and seeds to the topping. It is really a dessert that you should not miss. Not only is it easy to make, it also tastes so good that it’s very hard to stop once you start eating. My son who loves apple and blueberry very much gave this dessert TWO thumbs-up!!
You can try to mix and match other different varieties of seasonal fruits such as strawberries, nectarines, peaches, plums, blackberries or pears. It is an ideal recipe for those who need a quick dessert to serve their visiting guests or a large group during party time. Just adjust the amount accordingly to suit your requirement. If you don’t mind the extra “sinfulness”, top it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It’s heavenly!! Bet you will come back for more!
