Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
May 19, 2013

Ahh, I simply love this weekend. As told in my previous post I’m right now in a summerhouse in Jutland with my family and some friends, celebrating the Whitsun Holiday. And as usual it’s so nice and cozy :D (And luckily we have internet – yay! This means I’m able to blog while I’m here)

We live in the cutest (quite big) old house on the little island Als. I think it’s an old farmhouse actually. As you can see in the picture above it has red timber framings and blue windows and doors – SO cute.

We always do so many nice things on these trips around Denmark. Yesterday we went on a little drive around Als, then we went to the town Dybbøl to see the mill. Here at the mill a big battle, which is very important in Danish history, between Denmark and Germany took place back in 1864. Then we went to see one of the castles where the Queen’s son and family lives and in the end of the day we tried to ride go-cards :D That was so much fun!

The beautiful from the garden in the farmhouse.

Oh I almost forgot; we had lunch a the best restaurant ever. I had something called “flammkuchen” (picture above). It looks like pizza but it isn’t. The crust is incredibly thin. Even thinner than a tortilla. And very crispy. SO good. I definitely have to make it once :D

But well the day had not ended yet, ’cause then this happened:

Berry Crumble

Yummm… Warm tasty crumble.

Yep – I made the dessert and I must say it was a big hit.

There’s something strange about this crumble:

As you can see it doesn’t look like there’s very much crumble on top of the cake. But actually there is – it just somehow disappeared. No not disappeared – it became invisible.

Yeah I’m serious. It tastes like there’s crumble on top of it, you just can’t see it. Strange.

But it was SO delicious anyway. And a hit – the whole thing was eaten.

Oh and as a perfect end of the day Denmark won the Eurovision Song Contest!

Yaaay! SO nice. Usually I don’t really watch such shows but I think the Eurovision Song Contest is quite exciting :D

And now for the crumble:

Berry Crumble

Serves 8

For the filling:
  • 900 g. berries (eventually mix with rhubarb)
    • You can use frozen but thaw first
  • 1/2 cup sugar
For the crust
  • 1/2 cup oldfashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour 
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 125 g. cold butter
Preheat oven to 200°C/ 390° F.
Mix the berries and the sugar for the filling and spread out in a big pan.
Mix together the ingredients for the crust. Pinch together until it resembles shredded cheese and there are no big pieces of butter left.
Crumble the crust over the berries and bake for approx. 20 minutes (until the top is golden brown).
Serve warm with sour cream or (for a low fat version) greek yoghurt (or whipped cream or ice cream, but I don’t like that).
Happy Whitsun!
