Eggless Dessert- Apple & Strawberry Crisp

I admit, I am not much of a baker. While I do make cakes and cookies now and again, I am just not that good at it.....I've tried my hand at pies and cakes before, but they usually turn out, well...bad and fit for the trash can.

So, when I came across a recipe for an egg less apple crumble that didn't involve rolling a pie dough, I decided to give it a try......and let me tell you, this is easier than apple pie!
I also had some sweet strawberries in the fridge that I wanted to use....so this became an apple-strawberry crisp.

While it may not look fancy, the taste is divine!!!
Here's the recipe.

Use the recipe as a guideline- adjust accordingly to your quantity of fruit.

Apple-Strawberry Crisp:

For the topping:
1/2 cup- rolled oats
2/3 cup- all purpose flour
3/4 cup- brown sugar
6 tbsp- softened butter or margarine
1 tsp- Cinnamon
1 tsp- Vanilla Extract
1 tsp- nutmeg, 1/2 tsp- salt,

For the Fruit: Sliced apples and strawberries, 2 tbsp Sugar (optional) and 1 tsp- Lemon juice

Put the sliced apples and strawberries in a deep baking dish, sprinkle the sugar and lemon juice.

Mix all the topping ingredients with a fork or by hand till it resembles a coarse mixture.
Sprinkle the topping on the fruit and spread evenly. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes till browned.
Let sit for 10 minutes before serving to allow the natural juices to set.


Serving Suggestion: This is best when served warm with some cold, Vanilla ice cream....you can also eat it as is! It is just as good!

You can also substitute other fruits in this recipe- peaches and pears, rhubarb and apples, apples and berries, all are good together!

This is a perfect dessert for novice bakers like me and also a nice way to get your kids involved in the kitchen. What better way to spend some quality time with them and then sharing this wonderful dessert together!

I found this recipe a month or so ago and have been baking it weekly with the local farmer's market strawberries. Sometimes, I have thrown in some blueberries, too. One time, I dumped in too much vanilla by mistake -- excellent. I've also thrown some slivered almonds on top for additional crunch. There's no way to mess up these flavors. Thanks!

GET TO KNOW: BLACK CUMIN SEEDS

black cumin seeds = royal cumin seeds = kala jeera = shahi jeera = saah jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min Notes: Indian cooks use this spice in many of their curries and tandoori dishes. It's darker and sweeter than ordinary cumin. To bring out its nutty flavor, it helps to toast the seeds briefly before using them. Substitutes: cumin (Not as sweet as black cumin.) OR nigella
