Hot Red Currant Crumble – good morning weekend

red currant crumble

Why not start the weekend with a fruity little treat? I fell in love with red currants lately and they had super fresh ones at the market yesterday.

I found this recipe in a magazine. For the red currant crumble, the red currants are mixed with minced almonds and honey, which compensates the soureness of the fruits. It is very nice to eat the red current crumble hot – directly out of the oven together with some plain yoghurt.

Happy weekend!

    I was so happy to find out that one of my favourite food brands is now available in Germany: Gü!

    I fell in love with Gü Puds when I was living in the UK. They have super high-quality mousses, soufflés, cheesecakes and so on. Their chocolate prodoucts are pure indulgence and the little desserts come in tiny glasses.
