berry crumble

February 3, 2012 § 7 Comments

Because it was late and the air was lovely, I went for a short walk in the middle of the night and came back with a jubilant amount of energy. Perhaps it was the two cups of coffee consumed in the afternoon, leaving caffeine lingering in my blood cells till the-almost-full moon came out to play. I took off my coat, put an apron on and under the bright moonlight, started baking.

Adapted from jolly Jamie Oliver

serve 4 or 2 hungry people
For the filling:
400g frozen mixed berries
50g sugar, to sweeten
1 tablespoon water or red wine

For the crumble:
35g rolled oats
35g whole wheat flour
20g brown sugar
35g smart balance, vegan butter
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Place out 4 ramekins or one deep baking dish.

Put the berries into a pan with the sugar and water. Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes and once down, pour into ramekins or baking dish.

Place the flour and oats in a bowl and mix well. Cut the butter into small cubes and add this to the oats and flour. Mix with your fingertips until it resembles an even crumb texture. Add the sugar and cinnamon and mix through.

Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture. Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes until the crumble is golden brown delicious. Add a scoop of ice cream for an elegant indulgence.

    Hey there,
    Liz the Chef had you on her blog, so here I am!

    Late night fits of baking are what inspired my blog name 🙂 It was after my second child was born and my clock was whacky from breastfeeding. So as baby slept, I baked or cooked. Often the leftovers (or a whole meal) were reheated the next day for dinner, which made a happy hubby.

    I heart Jaime Oliver… He has a natural approach to food, you can tell he loves food 🙂 I’ve been a fan since Naked Chef aired in Canada!

      Thank you for dropping by! Jamie Oliver is a natural talent and his food is simple but so dearly adored. Midnight baking is a whole new dynamic for individuals unable to find time for themselves during the day. Make sure you have enough sleep (: Happy mummy, happy hubby, happy babies, joyful family!
