I couldn't resist the currants...

Red Fruit

I have a delicious summer crumble recipe for you today; made with strawberries, raspberries, and red currants, covered with almond crumble. I've created this recipe on the spur of a moment after ending up with too many fruit in my grocery basket ;-)

I just could not resist the currants. They are really hard to find here and, even if there are available sometimes, they're sold in small packages for high prices. Each package is like a little treasure to me and it has to be used wisely. So, I made this delicious red fruit crumble, but that's not all. Next time, I'll show you what I've made with black currants, which somehow happened to end up in my basket too ;-)

Hope you have a great weekend everyone,




Red Fruit Crumble

Red Fruit Crumble

Serves 4-6 

300 g raspberries
300 g strawberries, hulled and halved
150 g red currants
2 tbsp running honey
1 tbsp lemon juice

120 g butter
150 g flour
50 g almond meal
85 g blond cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)
2. Mix the fruit gently with honey and lemon juice. Divide between ramekins (you'll need 4-6 ramekins depending on their sizes)
3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, almond meal, and sugar.
4. In a small pot, melt the butter. When it starts to boil, remove from the heat and pour over the flour mixture. Add vanilla extract and stir with a fork or spoon until it forms crumbs. Sprinkle over the fruit.
5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the fruit mixture starts to bubble and the top is golden.
6. Serve warm, preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
