The crumble is the simplest dessert you could ever make. Get some of your favorite fruits, crumble butter, flour and sugar on top and you are done!
There are many different variations of this dish. Depending on the season and different fruit availability, you can ‘mix and match’ to your taste. In Poland, in early spring, rhubarb is what I’m keeping my eyes on. As soon as I can find it, it’s sure I’ll be making the crumble. My favorite combination combines rhubarb with some berries and to add extra kick I’m combining it with a bit of coffee. Trust me, this combination will satisfy your sweet tooth as well as your caffeine addiction – that’s the perfect combination!
