Banana crumble

Banana crumble / Crumble de banana

I was watching “Law & Order” the other day and felt like eating something sweet (like that’s something unusual). :) But the episode was really interesting – no Linus, which is bad, but Benjamin, which is good – and I wanted something fast to get back to the couch as soon as possible. The result was this crumble, ridiculously simple and oh, so delicious – and that smells and tastes like banana tart without all the work.

Banana crumble
inspired by the always wonderful Modern Classics 2

½ cup (70g) all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 ½ tablespoons superfine sugar
1 ½ tablespoons demerara sugar
pinch of ground cinnamon, or to taste
¼ cup (28g) rolled oats
50g unsalted butter, cold and chopped
2 bananas

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Slice the bananas and divide them equally among two lightly buttered 1 cup (240ml) capacity ovenproof bowls. Set aside.
Place flour, salt, sugars, cinnamon and oats in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Add the butter and, using your fingertips, rub the ingredients together until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over the bananas mixture and bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
Serve with heavy cream or vanilla ice cream.

Serves 2

Mmm never thought to make a crumble from bananas. They're so cheap here too unlike the conventional peaches or berries. Love it!
