i cant come up with anything really coherent to say – about this crumble (which i felt to be disturbingly good and completely inspired) or anything else for that matter. i got broken by an unfortunate train of abuses, principally among them, physical exertion to the point of paralysis and because of, or perhaps as a result of that, intellectual stasis which has left me entirely unable to finish this sentence. so i will give to you this recipe which i made up – and i love love love it. and if my brain hadn’t melted i would tell you why. but as it is, i cannot and so i suggest you make it for yourself and see.
1 punnet of raspberries
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
tsp vanilla extract
60g melted butter
100g chocolate chopped (either white – if youre using raspberries because obviously. or dark – dark with raspberries would also be a delight)
preheat oven to 190 degrees. melt the butter in a saucepan and set aside.
mix together the flour, salt, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl. add some cinnamon if you choose. i chose no.
pour over the melted butter. the original recipe had 85g melted butter but it was too much and it started to get too wet. i then had to add more flour. so i say 60g and i think thats probably right. but just check its consistency. should be like wet sand. not a wet mixture though.
then add chopped up chocolate.
put raspberries and apples into ramekins and fill to nearly the top.
crumble over the crumble.
bake for 20-30 minutes.
