August fruit crumble




August is a pleasing month which gives us the tasties peaches, plums, nectarines and many other lovely fruit. So last Saturtay we were so overwhelmed by these fruit that we bought far too much. By Wednesday some of the fruit started to loose their looks, that is why I decided to go with fruit crumble. I love crumbles because it's not a real pie or cake, so by loading baking dish with fruit and just some crumble on the top it makes me feel a bit better... Only if you don't add extra ice-cream... But I had to add as it's a hot day in Istanbul again...

What we need:

( I made quite a small crumble, but if you have more mouths to please, double ingredients)

for crumbles:

3 tbsp of brown sugar
2 tbsp of homemade vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon of cinammon
2 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp of corn flour
2 tbsp of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder

fruit for filling:

2 peaches
4 plums
2 nectarines
1 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp of homemade vanilla sugar

Wht we have to do:

1. With a fork or hands mix butter with sugar, vanilla sugar, cinammon. Then add corn flour, flour abd baking powder. Make everything into a ball and put in a fridge for 30 min.

2. Brush baking dish with butter and slice the fruit. Add vanilla sugar and pieces of butter.


3. Take the dough and crumble with hands or with a grater.


4. Pre-heat the oven 180C and bake for 30 min until crumbles get golden brown and the fruit juice is bubbling.

5. Serve with ice-cream. Enjoy!!!

  3. Your crumble looks delicious and crumbles are a wonderful way to use slightly over ripe fruit. I love that you were able to keep your crumbles so coarse. This is a lovely dessert.
