A crumble is a favourite quick and easy dessert. It became popular in Ireland during World War II. Popular fruits used in crumbles include apple, blackberry, peach, rhubarb, gooseberry, and plum. It´s possilbe use to a combination of two or more of fruits. Here is my favorite crumble recipe combining cherries and white chocolate.
For the crumble
- 300g rice flour
- pinch of salt
- 150g coconut sugar
- 180g unsalted butter at room temperature
- almond slices
For the filling
- pitted cherries
- 50g maple syrup
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- chopped white chocolate
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cut the butter into cubes and place in a mixing bowl with the flour. Press the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar.
In a large bowl mix together cherries, syrup and cornstarch.
Divide crumble mixture in half and press half into the bottom of the prepared baking pan or small baking dishes.
Sprinkle cherry mixture over the crust and on the layer of cherries sprinkle chopped white chocolate, the rest of the crumble mixture, and almond slices.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the crumble is browned.
