Crumble is a beloved Australian dessert and something that can be adapted to include any combination of fruit; it is quick and easy to prepare and delicious!!
If you’re short on time you can always use tinned fruit instead of baking fresh but it is not nearly as good : ) Mix it up with different fillings and use your favourite cereal or muesli in the topping to create your own delicious treat.
Preparation time: 50min (includes baking time)
- 1 Bunch fresh Rhubarb, trimmed and roughly chopped
- 4 Granny smith apples, cored and roughly chopped
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sultanas (rasins)
- 1 cup muesli or cereal of your choice
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup shredded coconut
- ¼ cup wholemeal flour
- 50g (2 oz) softened butter
- Rich vanilla ice-cream or thick natural yoghurt
Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
Place the apple and rhubarb in a baking tray; sprinkle with the sultanas and half the brown sugar toss lightly.
Bake for around 20 – 25 minutess until the rhubarb is oozing juices and the apple soft.
Arrange the apple and rhubarb mixture into a 6 cup capacity baking dish or alternatively six individual 1-cup capacity ramekins.
In a separate bowl combine the remaining dry ingredients and rub through the softened butter with your fingertips until nice and crumbly like breadcrumbs.
Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apple and rhubarb.
Bake the crumble for around 20 minutess until golden on top and bubbling underneath.
Serve hot with vanilla ice-cream or thick natural yoghurt.
Note: this also makes a great indulgent breakfast : )
