I am a massive crumble fan.
I love them all , from traditional apple crumble all the way to savoury fish crumbles. (Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it)
They are just delicious.
The other day, I wanted a scrummy dessert that I didn’t have to feel guilty about eating. So, I decided to give a berry crumble a go.
Honestly, super yummy. And SO easy to make, it would be a great activity to do with the kiddos.
And what’s more, you only need 6 ingredients!
1kg frozen red fruits
120g semi salt butter
100g brown sugar
50g rolled oats (optional)
50g powdered almonds
Preheat oven to 180degrees.
In a bowl mix the flour, brown sugar, powdered almonds, rolled oats if using and the butter (cut into small pieces).
Get stuck in and use your fingers, make it all crumbly.
Put the fruits in a baking dish and pour the crumble on top.
Bake around 30 minutes until the crumble is golden.
That is literally it!
It is delicious on its own, but you can add ice cream or custard to give it a little extra 😉
This savoury cake recipe is so simple and easy to make with the kids.
It is perfect for them to take to the park (cold) as a gouté or to have warm, along with a salad for dinner!
10g baking powder
10ml olive oil
2 pinches of salt
125ml full fat milk
100g sun dried tomatoes
10g pine nuts
Preheat the oven to 180degrees.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, eggs, olive oil, salt and milk together in a large bowl.
Chop the mozzarella into small pieces, do the same with the tomatoes.
Add the chopped ingredients and the pine nuts to the mixture.
Give it a good mix.
Butter the mould. I personally prefer to use a silicone mould because it makes getting the cake out SO much easier at the end.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Poke the cake with a knife, if it comes out wet, bake for another few minutes. Keep checking.
Serve warm or cold.
Add some grated courgette to the mix and increase the hidden veggies.
Olives would also work really well in this cake!

What a fun, festive breakfast idea for the little ones in your life. Reindeer pancakes make a delicious treat!
I found this adorable little guy from @whatiateforbreakfast on good old Instagram.
Don’t worry it is super simple to recreate and you can involve the children in every step of the recipe.
To make the world’s easiest, healthy pancakes all you need is to mix an egg with a mashed banana and fry it in a non-stick pan for a few minutes on each side. Voila!
To turn it into Reindeer Pancakes simply spread Nutella for a sweet treat, add bacon for antlers, blueberries for eyes and of course no reindeer would be complete without a red nose. Pick your favourite red berry to complete the design.
I like that this can be quite versatile to suit your tastes. Not a Nutella fan? Switch out the spread for peanut butter or almond butter. Don’t eat bacon? Use pretzels for antlers instead! There’s too much fruit for you? Use chocolate chips for eyes 😉
Play around with it. Have fun. Get the children excited about their snack.
