I am actually thinking out of the box these days just because I want to send in entries to all the wonderful, innovative events happening around "blogdom", (wowow, I just coined a new word.....)

well making a crumble recipe is not so much thinking out of the box kind of a thing, but then using stuff lying around in the fridge and creating dishes exclusively for events, is sure worth some kudos......just kidding guys, I am just trying to give a decent intro to the stuff I made
I only had a few strawberries and raspberries and a few plums. So I got all the red fruits that I had, and decided to make a crumble. This recipe is going for two events that celebrate colours in food, the first one is to sunshinemom of tongue ticklers for the COLOUR IN FOOD EVENT- RED.

It also goes to the WYF: colour in food, hosted by simple Indian food.

here goes the recipe

You will need
  • 2 cups mixed berries (I used raspberries and strawberries)
  • 3 plums
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp strawberry jam, or any other jam (preferably a berry variety)1/2 tsp cinnamon powder.
for the crumble
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4Th cup slivered almonds
  • 4- 6 tbsp butter
You have to
  1. in an oven proof dish, chop all the fruits.
  2. add cornstarch, jam and cinnamon powder to fruits.
  3. mix well and keep aside
  4. heat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit

  5. in a separate bowl, combine together the flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon powder, almonds and the butter.
  6. mix well, till everything is incorporated.
  7. spread it over the fruit mixture.
  8. bake in the preheated oven for 35 mins or till the fruit is bubbly and the top is golden brown.
  9. serve warm. with whipped cream or ice cream (I had none!!!!!)
