Jumbleberry Crumble

Now for another post on sweet sweet comfort food, in the form of Jumbleberry Crumble from Nigella Express. I recently discovered that there is heaps of Nigella videos on YouTube, which is fantastic because I would love to see her new show but as I am cable-less and for some reason no one out there in DVD land thinks that we would like to see all shows and all seasons of the same show (I'm looking at you, Bill Granger) on DVD. I would buy them!

Since that didn't make much sense, I wish that instead of just releasing one season of Nigella Bites and Nigella Feasts (I don't count Nigella's Christmas Bites) and just releasing season two of Bills Food on DVD, that they would release them all. If anyone knows if they have released them all and I'm just missing out, please let me know.

Anyway, I was browsing through YouTube and came across a snippet of Nigella making this Jumbleberry Crumble. It's a fantastic quick dessert, because you can make the crumble in advance, freeze it and pull it out whenever you like. It's made even easier by using frozen berries and it really just a quick assembly of ingredients and then into the oven.

from 'Nigella Express' by Nigella Lawson

For the crumble topping:

100g flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
50g cold butter cut into small cubes
3 x 15ml demerara sugar

Put the flour and baking powder into a bowl and rub in the cubes of butter, using your fingers, until you have a mixture like coarse sand.

Stir in the sugar and then put into a freezer bag to freeze

This mixture is enough to make 4 jumbleberry crumbles in the cups and about 8 ramekins

For 1 crumble in a cup (approx 300ml capacity)

100g frozen summer fruits
1 teaspoon cornflour
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or regular sugar and a drop of vanilla
75g frozen crumble topping

For 1 crumble in a ramekin (approx 125ml capacity)

50g frozen summer fruits
1/2 teaspoon cornflour
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or regular sugar and a drop of vanilla
30g frozen crumble topping

Preheat the oven to 220C. Put the summer fruits in either a cup or ramekin and sprinkle the cornflour and sugar over the top. Stir around a little.

Sprinkle the frozen crumble topping over the fruit and bake the cup for 20 minutes and the ramekin for 15 minutes.

Easy easy! And very delicious.
