This is a lovely crumble with a tropical twist! I invented a whole new crumble recipe for this special one & my beloved pineapple shines in here! :) And THAT is what WE WANT! :)
I made my crumble topping & fruit combo a few hours aka 4 hours before I was going to eat this so that the flavors of the fruit layer with the added ground ginger would mingle well! It is easy to do so too. This crumble is not too sweet because of the added passionfruit,…it tastes just right! Yum!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients:
Recipe: For 4 normal portions or 2 big portions!
For the crumble topping:
100 gr (1/2 cup) chilled salted vegan butter
40 gr (1/4 cup coconut sugar)
92 gr (3/4 cup) organic white spelt flour
27 gr (1/4 cup) medium-sized oats
For the fruit layer:
360 gr (2 cups) peeled fresh pineapple, hard core removed, cut up into smaller chunks
3 passion fruit, halved, orange flesh & seeds kept
30 gr (1/3 cup) unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger powder
Step 2: A Few Hours Before You Are Gong to EAT Your Crumble, Make the Crumble Topping & Fruit Layer Too.
A few hours before you are gong to EAT your crumble, make the crumble topping & fruit layer too. To make the crumble topping, add spelt flour, oats, coconut sugar & vegan butter into a medium-sized bowl. With a spoon mix together & with your clean hands mingle everything together until it all looks like smaller & bigger breadcrumbs, & place into a fitted bowl with lid & place into the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Now, make your fruit layer. Take a medium-sized bowl & ad pineapple chunks, coconut flakes, passionfruit flesh & seeds & ginger powder. Mix well with a spoon. Place cling film over it & place into the fridge to let the ingredients & flavors mingle for at least 2 hours.
Step 3: Combine Fruit Layer & Top With Crumble Layer & Bake Into the Hot Oven for 20 Minutes!
Now, preheat your oven to 200°C for 10 minutes. I always use a fan oven. Take a lovely fitted oven dish & place your fruit layer, in 1 layer all in it. Crumble your crumble topping over the fruit layer. See that all the fruit is covered. Place into the center of the hot oven & bake for about 20 minutes. Lower the oven temperature if you need to. I lowered my oven T to 180°C after 15 minutes! When your fruit crumble is ready, take out of the oven & let it sit on the kitchen counter for about 10 minutes to cool down a bit. Serve into lovely dessert bowls or plates & enjoy it just like that or with some good vegan coconut ice-cream or with some bought or home-made vegan pouring custard!!! Go on, indulge yourself,…you SO DESERVE it! MMM!
