Today I bring you a delicious red fruit crumble, a dessert that is perfect for any occasion, but especially great if you want to surprise your partner the night of Valentine's day.
The crumble is a dish of British origin that can be sweet or salty, although it is much more common to find it sweet. It is very typical in Great Britain and Ireland which is made with fruit and covered with a mass of flour, sugar and fat.
It became a dish popular in the second World War when due to the shortages and rationing of food, was not easy to find ingredients to make the feet (pies).
This recipe today is basic but delicious, but I encourage you to that integrate other ingredients in your recipes, like flakes of avera or nuts, that will make this crumble to raise even more than category.
There they use much the rhubarb, apples and in general any fruit with a touch of acid, but with peaches, for example, is also the most. You can use them if you want, but frozen are fine and they are cheaper, so you will also be well by little fresh. It will take you a few minutes to elaborate it. The rest is made in the oven, only so it is ideal while you finish preparing the candles and cups.
They can be made with almost any fruit. And although I admit that this is my weakness, I love apples or pears but there I add extra vanilla that goes great with these fruits. but I encourage you reinvent and try with your favorite fruit.
I love to have a few crumble crumbs almost always home-made to add to yogurt, custard cream or ice cream and turn it into a full dessert. A delicious crunchy touch that I like much more than some migadas cookies. I also like add it as a topping or coverage in a cake or some cupcakes because it gives an original super touch.

For the crumble

2. put the berries in a pan with the brown sugar and mix well. Cook a few minutes until the fruit to defrost and release all the juice.
3. it is important to remove the juice until the crumble then crispy. But you do not throw it. To my I like to use it as a sauce on pancakes or waffles, ice cream or yogurt, so I keep it in a pot in the fridge.
4. in a large bowl mix the flour with the sugar and salt. Add the vanilla and the butter and with the tip of your fingers mix until you get a fat sand and the gobs of butter are integrated with the flour. Work the mixture well.
5 put the crumble over the fruit crumbs well covering the berries.
