Banana ChocoNut Crumble
When I signed for this a week long marathon with the subject of baked goodies my only worry was that what will I bake everyday and will I have enough people to eat it? The first two days were a breeze as I had my sil's kids with us and when they went I was lucky enough to have friends over for dinner... and that is when I whipped up this dessert... it was yumm and the reason I like crumbles are because they are so easy to make.
Recipe : Adapted from Edible Garden
For the crumble
- Roast the nuts separately in a pan on low flame and coarsely chop them.
- Chop the bananas and dark chocolate into small pieces.
- Mix bananas, chocolate, sugar, cinnamon and the nuts together and put it in the pie dish or ramekins (I used a single pie dish)
- To make the crust chop up the chilled butter and add it to the flour along and mix well with finger tips, mix much like the rubbing method used for bread making... the result shld be a breadcrumps like rather than a dough so dont knead.
- Spread it well over the banana mixture and gently press to cover the whole dish.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 30 mins till it starts browning on the top.
And this is how it looked just after it came out of the oven.
And I served it with the sinful custard sauce which in Nags own words is made as follows.
Beat with a fork, 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon cornflour and add 2 tablespoon sugar with that. Add one cup warm milk and beat well again. Cook on a low fire stirring constantly until pouring custard consistency. Add 1/2 tsp vanila essence, cool, chill and serve with warm apple crumble.
I just loved it and whatever was left after the party was polished off by my son this morning :)
And I am sending this to Champa's Bake-Off
