an apple banana crumble.. an evening of shakespeare

If baby pig wants apple crumble, he shall have it.. if it's sashimi he wants, he shall have it too.. I'm super proud of baby and big ^^

Over the weekend, big and baby, together with eight other home-schooling friends, braved the stage to perform Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice to 3 sold-out shows! They (and their friends) were amazing!! I thoroughly enjoyed my evening of shakespeare! (^^)

Oh, did I mention Big initiated the idea, directed, acted and coordinated the production? ^^ Yes, he's that special ^^.. Kudos to baby too (I love your Salerio and Duke of Venice, and for persevering with the horrible pokey wig!) and all their friends (and moms) for their sterling effort! (^^)

So to mark the occasion, a yummy-licious apple banana crumble, as requested by baby some 2 weeks ago ^^

Apple banana crumble (adapted from MWW April 2006)

4 small apples, sliced thin
5 medium bananas, sliced (so yummy, need to put more next time)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon sugar
250g flour, sifted
2 tsp baking powder, sifted
6 tbsp instant oats
180g caster sugar (too sweet! need to use less, maybe 150-160g next time)
200 cold unsalted butter, diced

1. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon sugar over apples and bananas. Mix till fruits are well coated. Spread on ramekins or a large baking dish.

2. Mix flour, baking powder, oats and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add diced cold butter into flour mixture. Use a knife to incorporate butter into the flour.

3. Rub butter pieces coated with flour with your thumbs and fingers till they resemble rough breadcrumbs. Top fruit mix with crumble mix.

4. Bake in oven at 200C for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with a dollop of ice cream ^^

A super-duper easy dessert. And yes, it's good.. it's thumbs up good from baby! Big too! Mama likes! So do I (^^) A proud weekend.. and many happy days! la-la-la-la..

p.s sorry for the bad apple banana crumble pics.. was rushing to serve them warm to piggies ^^
