Raspberry Almond Crumble


raspberry-almond-oat-crumble

The easiest way to enjoy fresh fruits as a simple yet delicious dessert is by baking them into pies and crumbles! This lovely Raspberry Almond Crumble made with wholegrain flour is proof enough, don't you think! Crips, Crumbles, Cobblers and Pies all belong to the same family, but technically, they are slightly different. A Crumble is a British dessert containing stewed fruit topped with a crumbly mixture of butter, flour, and sugar. It is then baked in an oven until the topping becomes brown and crispy! My crumble recipe is made from fresh raspberries, crushed almonds, rolled oats and flour, a tinge of orange juice for that fresh citrusy flavor, and a touch of ginger for the perfectly refreshing aroma that will fill your kitchen as you bake these in the oven! You could also try using other seasonal fruits like apples, peaches or plums.

Raspberry Crumble

Ingredients
2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
3 tbsp regular sugar (adjust according to tartness of berries)
2 tbsp orange juice (or 1 tsp fresh orange zest)
1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger

Crumble Topping
1/2 cup wholegrain flour
3 tbsp rolled oats
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 tbsp coarsely-crushed almonds

Method
Preheat oven to 400 deg F; grease one 6 inch baking dish (or 4 small ramekins) with butter or non-stick spray.

Place all the topping ingredients in a mixing bowl and rub them lightly together, using your fingertips, until you have a uniform mixture that resembles fine breadcrumbs or pearl-sized granules.

Mix the raspberries with the sugar, orange juice and ginger in a bowl. Gently toss to evenly coat the berries. Now arrange them in a freased/buttered ramekin or baking dish.

Top the raspberries with the crumble mixture and the crushed almonds, pressing it down lightly to get it even all over, then run a fork gently over the surface to make it crumbly.

Bake it on the high shelf in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until the top is golden. and the fruit starts bubbling from underneath, cutting through the top crust.

Serve it warm topped with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

This Raspberry Crumble recipe is a definite winner with guests, and even with kids. Looking colorful and elegant, it tastes even better, and can serve to be an easy dessert while entertaining!

I'll surely try this but I don't have rolled oats handy. Do you have a substitute for that? Thanks.

Mansi Desai said...

Rads - you can use ground almond meal, or even skip the oats altogether; it will not affect the taste much:) do try it and let me know how it goes!

I made this with peaches :) But I haven't tried the almond topping as yet!

Mansi Desai said...

thanks people! glad you all liked it! I initially thought of adding peaches to this too, but then finally the raspberries won the battle, and the almonds were like the icing on the top!:)

Crumble is one of my favorite summertime desserts! I made something similar to this recipe the other day and it turned great. But I didn't have any orange juice or ginger in the recipe. What a great idea! Thank you for sharing!

This recipe sounds good and healthy! I just made Banana Crumble yesterday, but I didn't use wheat flour. Thanks for the idea, next time I will use wheat flour. :)

SMN said...

Manasi crumbles look great i never had d chance to taste berries as we dpont get here in India

Mansi Desai said...

great to see so many lovers for crumbles! SMN - you could use some other native fruit, like mangoes; I'm so sorry you don't get berries in India!

Doug Cress said...

I pretty much love anything with the word 'crumble' in it.

Mallika said...

I make crumble a lot but I prefer less acidic fruit because the end result isn't so tart.

Sarah said...

How do you recommend crushing the almonds?

Mansi Desai said...

sarah - I just used store-bought slivered almonds, then put them in a zip-lock bag and thrashed it on my wooden cutting board:) it was really fun!:) but you could also use a grinder and just pulse the almonds 3 times, 5 sec each time. that should about do it..

hope this helps!
