We’ve got to end this week on a sweet note. We just have to.
I’ve been under the weather almost all of this week, guys. It’s not anything major but it’s draggy and been making me feel a little down the past few days. And so, we must end this week in as sweet a note as we can. 🙂
Welcome, weekend. I’m ready for ya.
And you all know how crumble-crazy I get. I dare say I have upwards of 5 recipes that feature crumbs. Most likely close to 10. But let’s pretend I’m not THAT obsesses. I’ll link to some at the bottom.
But first, Apple Blueberry Crumble. This sounds as boring and plain as anything can be. Yet, I can never get enough of apple-based crumbles. I can’t imagine making fruit crumbles without there being apples in one shape or form. This time, I threw in some sad old blueberries and some golden raisins for a little lift. I mean, wrinkly old blueberries and raisins kinda look alike, don’t they? Yeah.. waste not, want not.
Not in the foreseeable future!
In the past, I’ve made several renditions:
What do you like to make your crumbles with? Are there certain seasonal fruits right now that would be lovely in this?
Also, Have A Great Weekend!!
“I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” (Isaiah 43:25)
- 4 Fuji Apples, peeled, cored & sliced
- ½ cup Blueberries, fresh/frozen
- ¼ cup Golden Raisins
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 2 tbsp + 1 cup Flour
- 1 tsp Ground Mixed Spice (contains nutmeg, allspice & cinnamon)
- 3 tbsp + ½ cup Brown Sugar
- ½ cup Cold Butter, cubed
- Preheat oven to 180C or 360F.
- Pour sliced apples, blueberries & raisins into a 9.5 inch deep baking dish.
- Toss with lemon juice, 2 tbsp flour, mixed spice & 3 tbsp brown sugar. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix ½ cup brown sugar & 1 cup flour. Cut in cold butter until it resembles coarse sand.. Try to work fast before butter has melted. If need be, refrigerate crumble mixture for 15 minutes before use.
- Sprinkle crumble over fruits evenly. Do not try to compress or pack it in or it would become tough.
- Bake for 30 mins of until golden brown and fruits are bubbling.
- Remove from oven and cool for 15 mins before serving.
- Particularly good with a dollop of cream, Greek yogurt... or if you're feeling feisty, some ice cream.
