And I want to make Apricot crumble today, definitely an easy and quick recipe. Summer holiday are coming, you can make this dessert with your children, I think they’ll love it. Cooking and baking with our children are the most precious time with them, and they can learn from your cooking skill for their future. I was so appreciated to spend the time with them in their childhood.

I used the fresh apricot for the main ingredient, and finish off the ginger nut biscuits from my cupboard for the cheesecake base, you can use any kind of fruits or any biscuits you like. Teach your children how to crush the biscuits, it will be an exciting work for them. Normally, the base are made  by biscuits and butter, but I liked to have a change this time, I loved to try some thing new but I’m not sure when it come out, keep on reading, I will tell you later.

Method: 

  • Put the coconut oil, sugar and lemon juice into a saucepan over medium low heat, and let the sugar melted first, add the peach wedges  and coated all over with the sugar syrup, turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 4 to 5 minutes and let the syrup get a bit thicken, off heat.

For the crumble: 

  •   5 Ginger nut  biscuits, crushed 
  •   1/8 cup All purpose flour,    ( I used gram flour )
  •   1 thsp Raw sugar
  •   1 tbsp Coconut oil,      ( can use unsalted butter )
  •   Pinch of salt

Method: 

  • Mixed the flour, brown sugar and salt,  add the coconut oil, then add the crushed biscuits to make it like breadcrumbs.

Assembly: 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C/180°C (fan oven), or gas mark 6.
  • Pour the cooked peaches into an oven-proof container ( I used a 15cm x 15cm glass container ), top with the biscuit crumbs and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until the top golden brown.

To make the fresh custard sauce: 

  • Whisk up one egg yolk with 1 tsp cornflour, 10g raw sugar and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract ( of course  better to  use vanilla seeds from the pod ), but it just couldn’t be bother me, cause it was only a small quantity. Then add 110ml  almond milk and 110ml coconut cream. Pour all the ingredients into a saucepan over medium low heat ( it was only small quantity), keep stirring and keep cooking until the custard get thicken to your desire consistency.

To serve: Now serve the peach crumble with fresh custard sauce. Mmm, I just don’t know how to describe the taste to you all.  The peaches are fresh, soft, and still has the tangy taste to tickle your taste bud ( that’s what I expect ), but next,  you can taste the crunchy ginger biscuits crumbs; at last, you can taste the fresh custard with vanilla.

***  In one simple dessert, you can have three different texture of taste, what else you want to expect? I just feel over the moon!!!
Note: 
  • The coconut cream that I used, was from the can. Before you want to use it, take one can of coconut milk chill into the fridge for few hours, remember not to shake it, so when you open the can, you can see the top layer of coconut cream, scoop it out to make what you want to make.
  • It could be vegan friendly without the custard.
