There are a ton of recipes for harvest time sweet stuff, and this is what I'm eating today. After playing with food, I've come up with the easiest dessert ever inspired by my sister Una, the OG apple thief.
It's awesome a la mode for dessert , but also works as breakfast when mixed and served hot with or without a bit of cream . Either way , it's delish and a good way to clean fruit from the bowl since it works so well with a wide variety of larger fruits as well as berries .
6 cups assorted sliced fruit - (today it is random local apples, blackberries, random local pears and italian plums stolen from various neighbours)
1/4 cup Vanilla or Plain Sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
mix in a bowl and sperad out into a casserole dish while you preheat the oven to 400F/200C
The Crunchy Stuff
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Oats
1 Cup Brown (I'm using Demerrara) Sugar
1/2 cup Margarine
Mix all of the dry ingredients with your paws . Cut in margarine with a pastry blender or a couple of forks until it resembles gravel . You are not trying to make pastry , so perfection is not an issue . Spead over the fruit and bake for 35-50 minutes until bubbly and yummy looking . Do not even look at the oven for at least 25 minutes . I went for a shower since I have a tendency to babysit my food.
Let sit for a few and nom before your flatmates steal it all!
