I don’t know what it is but a crumble always takes me right back to my childhood.I can tell you I felt like a little child licking the bowl clean when I was done with this Cherry & Rhubarb Crumble.
There is something so comforting about eating a crumble.It has everything -the tartness from the fruits – cherry & rhubarb in this case,crispness from the crumble and creaminess from the ice-cream or whipped cream.It’s infact ,the perfect no fuss dessert at the end of a hearty dinner.I usually serve the crumble warm with a dollop of ice cream which adds another dimension to this already amazing dish.
I love making it in my kitchen because this doesn’t need any special knowledge or skill.It’s a such a simple yet deeply rewarding dessert which I make so so often.
Crumble is the most perfect no fuss dessert
Variations of a Crumble
I have used fresh cherries & Rhubarb for this crumble but you can really use any other stone fruit or berries in the same quantity.
The tartness from the stone fruits transforms into a deep sweetness when baked and oozes such a beautiful full-bodied Burgundy sauce which is so characteristic with these beautiful seasonal fruits.
