Today I have a dessert for you, a delicious fruit crumble with oats in the crumble mixture which makes it extra delicious and crispy!
Fruit crumble is something my Irish guest mother made for us on a sunday dinner, served with big slices of ice cream shaped like a cake. It was sooo delicious!! I remember that day, it was sunny and the whole family was sitting around a big table. Great memories!
I have already shared a lot of great pictures from my last trip to Ireland so I strongly recommend you pop over there and look at those pictures! I hope I can show you some more pictures of previous trips tomorrow, I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
But for now it’s FRUIT CRUMBLE TIME! 😀
Don’t forget: If you have any questions about Ireland, or if you have made your own experiences with Irish food, the people, the culture or the country please leave a comment!! I would love to hear about it!
- 750g fresh fruit (I used pears, plums and strawberries)
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 50g flour
- 50g oats
- 30g sugar
- 50g butter, softened
- optional: ice cream and/or whipped cream to serve
- Preheat your oven to 180° C.
- Wash and chop the fruit into big chunks. Strawberries and plums can stay bigger, pear needs to be a little smaller, because it takes longer to cook.
- Put the fruit into a casserole dish and mix with 1 tablespoon of sugar (or more, if your fruit is not sweet enough)
- Pepare the crumble mixture: Put flour, oats, butter and sugar into a bowl and mix with a fork or with your fingers until combined. Sprinkle on top of the fruit. I like the crumbles to be in bigger chunks, so I press them together with my fingers and then put them on top.
- Bake the fruit crumble for about 45 minutes. If the crumbles get too dark, cover with aluminium foil.
- Serve with generous dollops of ice cream and whipped cream and dig in!
