Cold weather treat: Cammile’s selection and my interpretation – Pear Raspberry Crumble.
Nothing describes winter better than a baked, warm, fruit dessert, with flavors of cardamom and cinnamon and crunched nuts on the top. At least for me…
Originally, the crumble is a dish of British and Irish origins (since Second World War), but it can also be traced, in the American cuisine, all the way back to the European colonization of the Americas. In some parts of America very similar dish may be called a crisp.
Interesting for me was to find out that it can be made both in sweet and savory versions. Although the sweet version is much more common.
There are a lot of different types of crumble, depending of type of fruits used and also of variety of toppings (rolled oats, different kind of nuts, cookies or cereals).
I like experimenting. One time with apples, strawberries and corn meal, another time (this recipe) is with pears, raspberries and oatmeal.
