Apple Kiwi Crumble

Cold or warm dessert?

Back in SG, I'm always running towards the cold desserts. Cold Ching Teng, bubble tea and ice-cream are some of my favorites. The weather plays a part I suppose, and something sweet and cold helps in cooling down from the hot, humid weather.

In Perth, I'm frequently torned between both. I have grown to enjoy baked puddings, crumbles and warm molten chocolate cakes. AR on the other hand still prefer cold desserts than warm.

Apple, kiwi crumble is a way to reconcile the two together. He can have the ice-cream, I can have the crumble.

Apple Kiwi Crumble (Serves 2)
1 apple chopped
2 gold kiwi chopped
1 generous tablespoon of brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cups of oats
1/2 cup of flour
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 handful of crumbled walnuts

1) Preheat oven to 180C.

2) Place apple, kiwi fruit, cinnamon stick, sugar in a small saucepan. Heat it up gently. Stir frequently till the apple softens. Stir in vanilla essence. Pour mixture into ramekin.

3) As the apple/kiwi mixture cooks, place flour and butter into a bowl. Rub butter into flour till it resembles breadcrumbs. Fold walnuts and sugar through it. Sprinkle mixture on top of apple/kiwi mixture.

4) Bake for 25 minutes till the top turns golden brown. Serve with ice-cream.

Crumble! I love crumbles, but have yet to make one. Reading people's cooking adventures have made me realize I have a bunch of irrational cooking phobias! Thanks for the inspiration!
