I mostly cook on the stove top rather than in the oven, but during rhubarb and apple season, I make a fair number of fruit crumbles (I think this is a British pudding, so if you're not sure what I'm talking about you can find out here). Recently though, our oven has been temperamental so I've needed to find alternatives, so that all those apples don't go to waste (though the poor summer weather has reduced the harvest from Crafty Green Boyfriend's parents' apple trees). So this is what I came up with (it saves on cooking time and electricity too, while being just as tasty as a crumble):
Crunchy Muesli Fruit Dessert
Stew your favourite fruit (our favourites are either apples or rhubarb with a few dates chopped up and added in). Add brown sugar and mixed spice to taste.
Spoon the stewed fruit into a bowl.
Add a few tablespoons of crunchy muesli (granola) (Try to make sure your muesli doesn't contain palm oil, don't let you dessert play a part in destroying orang utan habitat). You can also add extra ingredients to the muesli such as mixed seeds and nuts or grated dark chocolate.
Serve with yoghurt, custard or a dairy free custard alternative.
It's so delicious I think I prefer it to crumble!
