Nectarine and raspberry crumble

When I took out this nectarine and raspberry crumble from the oven, a divine smell spread all over the appartment that woke up the cats from their lazy naps. Nectarines and raspberries are a winner combination and makes a perfect summer day even more perfect. Take a large serving with some vanilla custard, find a good spot in your garden, balcony or window and indulge.

    Nectarine and raspberry crumble

    125 gram butter
    300 ml flour
    100 ml caster sugar (of which half is vanilla infused, i.e. from a sealed jar with caster sugar and vanilla pods)

    5 ripe nectarines
    200-250 gram raspberries
    2 pinches of sugar
    5 pinches of potato flour

    Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C.

    Peel the nectarines and slice thinly. Place the nectarine slices and raspberries in a baking pan. Sprinkle sugar and potato flour over the fruit.

    Place the sugar, butter and flour in a bowl. With the tips of your fingers rub the ingredients together until you have a crumbly mixture. Cover the fruit with the crumbles and bake for 25 minutes until the topping is nicely browned. Serve with vanilla ice cream or custard.

    Mmm – that’s almost like a peach melba crumble, isn’t it? A winning combination indeed!

    :) zrobiłam wczoraj crumble z nektarynkami i malinami,ale przyznam,że kruszonkę zrobiłam po swojemu(daję mniej mąki i dodaję trochę mąki orzechowej-z orzeszków arachidowych-daje fajny aromat.dobra jest też mąka migdałowa,ale jest dużo droższa;).
    czy mogłabyś napisać,co daje posypanie owoców mąką ziemniaczaną?pierwszy raz się z tym spotkałam,a prawdopodobnie jest to jakieś ulepszenie,którego nie znam. pozdrawiam z Gdyni(nad polskim morzem:)

    leonine: It tastes great!

    Deborah: Yes, it was :-)
    Anne: It was like heaven in my mouth :-)

    Pille: Yes, definitely. I actually thought about naming it nectarine melba, but it sounded a bit funny :-)

    hilde: thanks!

    avuca: Tutaj nie widzialam nigdy maki orzechowej, brzmi jako swietny pomysl. Ja w crumble lubie uzuwac posiekane orzechy (hazelnuts, akurat Polska nazwa mi wyszla z glowy) :-) Maka zemniaczna pomaga gdy owoce sa bardzo soczyste, bo jak sa bardzo soczyste to sie robi wielka mazia z tego crumble. Ale to zalezy od owocow. Pozdrowienia!

    Lena: It’s a perfect combination!

    I tried this but found that 125g of butter was a little too much and ended up with the mixture binding together into a ball of “dough”

    So I tried again with 300ml (odd measurement for non-liquids?!) and 100g of butter which worked a treat :D
