I first made this fall-inspired crumble for my little sister’s birthday a few months ago. Yes, months… I first made it back in September! So why did I wait until now to post about it? I mean, why not share an awesome recipe for a fruit crumble (crisp, whatevs…) straight away? Especially since my entire family loved it and asked for second and third helpings, and because it’s so easy to throw together you can even make it without proper counter space and kitchen utensils? <– (I made my sister’s birthday crumble with a blunt knife, working on an ironing board, because the table was already laid and my brother-in-law’s kitchen was a mess)! Why indeed?
Because of the baby, of course!
As you probably know, back in September (and July, and August, and October) I was working ahead for the blog. Developing recipes, taste-testing, baking, taking photos… because I knew there would be a time somewhere around now when I wouldn’t have the time/energy/agility to do those things. And no, this isn’t a weird way to tell you guys that my baby has been born already. He or she is sleeping soundly in my belly at du moment. But it is why I waited two months to present you guys with the greatest crumble recipe ever!
And yes, of course there are oats involved!
Like all fruit crumbles, this particular fruit crumble is really easy to make. It all starts with your favorite fall fruits. For me, this means apples and berries. Why apples? Because baked goods with apples just scream fall to me! Moreover, cinnamon (my favorite spice for fall baking) just loooooves apples. No surprises there, right?
