Bake of the week! The Best 5min Crumble

Who doesn't love a bloody good crumble? I mean, come on, you can change the recipe in so many ways to create hundreds of different combinations and flavours. What more could you want? Although, we do hope you're not getting too fed up of the amount of crumbles we share on this here blog. They're just so easy to make on weeks where Laura needs extra looking after (i.e. every week lately). So, this week we've gone for a 5 minute microwave crumble that Laura loves for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The original idea came from this Crumble from the magnificent Averie Cooks (check her blog out, you'll be drooling for days) but we wanted to put our own little spin on it. Here's our Raspberry & Nectarine 5 Minute Cinnamon Crumble.

Laura said this was her favourite microwave crumble ever, and that's saying something, she is a crumble floozie after all. We think that a crumble is the perfect food for poorly days, you can make it healthier but it's still so easy to eat. Of course, it goes down better with a blob of ice cream (or 2). This is so easy to make too! I think it would be easy to make for M.E.'ers that are housebound and can prepare their own meals and if not, then you won't have to borrow a servant for long. A little note, we're making gluten and gluten free pizzas for the blog next weekend so be prepared to crave pizza.You want the recipe now?

Raspberry & Nectarine 5 Minute Cinnamon Crumble. (serves 1)

Bottom Ingredients: 
1 nectarine
a small handful of raspberries
1tsp sugar
1tsp water

Top Ingredients:
2 tsp butter
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp granulated sugar
2 tsp rolled oats
2 tsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon (or to your taste)
  • Chop the nectarine and put in a bowl with the raspberries, sugar and water. Then microwave for 30-45 seconds.
  • Whilst cooking, get another bowl and add all the topping ingredients. Then, mix together with the back of a fork until it kind of resembles lumpy breadcrumbs.
  • Take the fruit out of the microwave and spread the topping over the top of the fruit. Pop back in the microwave for 2 minutes and hey presto. 
  • Serve with ice cream.
