Sweet Saturday - Red fruit Crumble

This will go real good with some vanilla or yogurt ice cream. It is a traditional red fruit crumble but the almonds in the crumbles make it different. Eating crumble always reminds of a day walking in Howth, Ireland, when we finished our walk in a pub eating a divine crumble.

Red Fruit Crumble

Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 500-600gr of red fruit  
  • 50 gr sugar 
  • cinnamon to taste
  • 75 gr flour
  • 75 gr butter, cold and cubed
  • 75 gr ground almonds
  • 50 gr sugar (incl some vanilla sugar)
Mix the fruit with the sugar and some cinnamon (last is an option). Place it in one oven proof dish or individual dishes, about 23 full.
Mix the butter and the flour, add the sugar and ground almonds, mix with your (cold) hands until crumbled. Cover the fruit with the crumbles and place it all in an oven of 180°C for 30-40 minutes until crumbles are golden brown. Leave to cool for a little, but serve still warm with some ice cream.

Once I was out of almonds and added some chocolate buttons to the crumble instead, this worked well too ;-)
