Crumble with Muesli

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’ve prepared many kind of crumbles, changing the fruits and crust.

This one is a comfort recipe I prepared with frozen yellow nectarines and red peaches from the garden.

Looking for rolled oats, I realized I did not have them in my pantry, but a very good substitute was ready to be used: a muesli mixture! I’ve doubled the oat quantity I supposed to use, I also added some baking powder and voilà a super delicious crumble (or crisp? Or cobbler?) had been served in a very short time and had been literally devoured!

Vanilla ice cream or custard may be great addition to be served with this.

    • Thanks! Me too, especially in winter or in the garden in the evening after the heat has gone! It’s a great way for me to use fruits from the garden I’ve preserved in the the freezer! 🙂

  1. Made for “The Art of Welsh Baking High Tea Challenge” of CQ4. For the fruit, I used blueberries & strawberries. I used the ALPEN brand of muesli that advertised itself as THE SWISS RECIPE, but frankly we found it tasteless, powdery & almost without any dried fruit at all. So I decided to expand your recipe by adding chopped raisins, dried mango & dried cranberries. After that, I made the recipe as written. It was wonderful & cooked perfectly in the time specified. IMO this dessert would be good served warm w/cream or ice cream, at room temp w/a dusting of powdered sugar or plain right from the fridge. It was also 1 of the easiest fruit crumbles I’ve ever made, so a big winner for us in all ways. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Yum!
