While volunteering in Bariloche/Argentina in the Hostel Punto Sur I got introduced to the Crumble:
a dessert to die for.
It’s super easy to make!
Preparation time: 10 Minutes
Waiting time while it bakes and „makes love“: 30 Minutes
Here are the details:
What you need
- 4 big apples (preferably red)
- 5 green soft freshpears
- 100g of butter
- 100g of sugar
- 150g of flour
How to make it
1 Cut the apples and the pears in cubes. Choose the size your mouth likes the most.
2 Cook the apples in a pot with butter for 5 minutes so they get softer. Add the pears after a minute and a fair amount of cinnamon. If you have the luxury to get some, you should also add almond powder.
in the meantime….
3 put the butter, the flour and the sugar in a bowl and enjoy mixing them with your freshly washed hands. It should soon start looking like a crumble: If you can form a ball that stays, but breaks when pushed a little bit harder – like wet sand – it’s perfect. congratulations.
Back to the butter soaked „cinnamonned“ fruits
They should be quite soft by now.
4 – Put them into a baking pan and spread them evenly.
5 – Crumble the crumble over them.
6 – Put in the oven until the crumble gets golden brown.
7 – Serve it hot (comes best with home made limoncello).
¡buen provecho! – Guten Appetit! – Bon appetit! – Afiyet olsun! – Enjoy your meal
