This warm and juicy nectarine and blueberry crumble is a wonderful weekend dessert. The recipe is easy to make and requires just a couple of ingredients, which you’ll find easily in your kitchen cupboard.
I was wondering how to come back to my blog and social media after such a long time. To be honest, I haven’t written any articles or taken any photos for over two months – and I started to feel I needed something big for my first post.
However (and I’m sure you’ll agree!), putting yourself under unnecessary pressure isn’t the greatest solution. It just holds you back. Every single weekend, I kept postponing my photoshoots and putting things off…
But today, I decided to look at this in a simpler way and come back to the blogging world with a lovely, warm and easy nectarine crumble.
I think crumble is a magical dessert – no matter what, you’ll always find the combination which suits you best. For example, if it’s sunny there’s nothing better than a crumble with fresh summer berries. If it’s rainy and miserable outside, then the best choice is a warm apple crumble with a cup of tea. If you’re feeling adventurous – why not give a go for peach, plum or rhubarb crumble!? There’s always an option that’s right for you.
Nectarines and peaches are in season at the moment, so the flavour is on another level. They are sweet, juicy and unbelievably delicious. Because of this, I chose this fruit (you can swap them for peaches) as a base for my nectarine crumble. This also meant I didn’t need any additional sugars for the fruit filling – but still had the tastiest Sunday dessert.
I hope you’ll give this recipe a go or use it as an inspiration for your weekend treat discovery.
3 big nectarines
½ tablespoon of plain flour
100g ground almonds
100g plain flour
80g cold butter
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
Pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- For the fruit mix: Peel the nectarines and cut them into small cubes. Add the blueberries, the zest and juice of one lime and flour. Mix everything together and add the fruits to the baking dish.
- For the topping: Mix all the ingredients using your hands. You want to end up with a texture like breadcrumbs. Add the topping onto your prepared fruits.
- Bake for 45 minutes or until topping is golden.
