It’s the end of the year and we’ll taking a moment to reflect: ReDux has been around for 42 months! To celebrate, we’re playing a little party game this month: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 42 or 142. We can’t wait to see the books you’re cooking from these days – and how you make that recipe healthier.
The most recent addition to my recipe book collection is Smitten by Sarah Graham. On page 142 is Sarah’s recipe for Fig Crumble. Thus inspired I am sharing my redux’d version of a fruit crumble this month – peach and blueberry crumble.
I prefer to make my crumbles in individual ramekins as you can serve them up without ending up with a sloppy (albeit delicious) mess. This peach and blueberry crumble recipe is really forgiving: leave out nuts if needed for allergies, use plums or nectarines in place of peaches; refrigerate your assembled for up to day in advance, simply bake just before serving…
- 4 peaches, sliced (I leave the peels on)
- 1 cup blueberries
- 40 ml pecan nuts
- 20 ml honey or brown sugar
- 100 g cold butter or margarine, roughly cubed
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup cake flour
- ¼ cup quick cook oats
- ⅓ cup desiccated coconut
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Coat 8 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine the sliced peaches and blueberries and divide between the ramekins.
Top each ramekin with nuts and honey - 1 tsp pecan nuts and ½ tsp honey per ramekin.
In a food processor or mixing bowl, mix the butter/marg, sugar, flour, oats, coconut, vanilla and salt until the butter/marg. is just incorporated and you have a rough crumble texture. Spoon this crumble over the fruit.
Bake for about 30 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit juices are bubbling.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
You can refrigerate the assembled crumble for up to day in advance. Simply bake just before serving. I have since made this recipe with plums and nectarines in place of peaches, these work great too. Adapted from Sarah Grahams Fig Crumble - pg 142 Smitten
