Crumble Delight

I've always love crumbles, you think of anything that is nutty, oat-ty, crispy. It's just like how I love nuts in my oatmeal, cereals, brownies, crunchy instead of chewy cookies... etc. Just about a month ago, I had this banana crumble served with vanilla ice-cream with my friend at PS cafe as my birthday treat. I really liked the crumble although it was a little on the sweet side.

Thereafter I had been thinking of making a blueberry crumble one of these days as I still had a packet of fresh blueberries kept frozen in my freezer for quite some time. However I had been putting it off, until last weekend (day after Good Friday), I woke up, found no breakfast, my dad was cooking his usual Teochew Porridge which I don't feel like eating, and hence went searching for a blueberry crumble recipe. The recipe was a simple one. Less than 10 minutes of preparation time and about 20 minutes of baking time, freshly baked blueberry crumble is ready! And another good thing was I FINALLY took out my beautiful ramekins for this crumble :D

I had mine with some plain yoghurt. How I wished there were vanilla ice-cream! :P

This is the simple pleasure of baking, for yourself and your love ones ;)

I've tried it yesterday with cranberries and strawberries. A yummy breakfast in a rainy Friday morning, very well liked by my family too. Thanks for the idea.
