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

That’s it.

Here are the details:

What you need

Ingredients :

  • 4 big apples (preferably red)
  • 5 green soft freshpears
  • 100g of butter
  • 100g of sugar
  • 150g of flour
  • cinnamon

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).
