Individual Strawberry and Almond Crumbles

Strawberry Crumbles

I don't know about anyone else but my strawberries haven't done too well this year.... thanks to the grey skies and rain (although I think things could be on the up weather wise next week). The few strawberries that have ripened on my drowned plants have been very sour, far too sour for the children to eat. Thankfully I stumbled across Nigella's solution to my strawberry problem in the form of her Strawberry and Almond Crumble in 'Nigella Kitchen'. Apparently sour strawberries are transformed in this recipe....and she was right - my sour strawberries became tender, juicy and sweet. I changed the recipe from the one stated in the book, not least making them in individual ramekins, which I think look nice. I've also used my own topping recipe (I make double the amount I need and freeze the half I don't use for future use). Serve with clotted cream for a summery dessert.

  1. This sounds really good to me, I'm printing the recipe to try it soon.

  2. These individual strawberry and almond crumbles are pure goodness. I have lots of fresh strawberries I can put to good use. I am pinning this to my pinterest board. Cheers.

  3. There s something so appealing about wee individual puddings and desserts. Lovely!

  4. The older I get, the more I love crumbles - I was never that keen when I was younger. Love your use of a summer fruit.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
