Mango and Banana Crumble

Your taste buds won’t be bored with this crumble. I like sharing easy and quick recipes that anyone can reproduce and I definitely felt like a chef after making this crumble!
I have to admit I wasn’t so sure about this new combination. I am very loyal to classic desserts in general and don’t like when they taste too different. Crumbles are tasty just with apples, but what if a crumble can be even better than just with apples? And with any kind of fruit?

I was scrolling down Instagram and got inspired by some random people’s holiday in Hawaii. Fruit plates on the beach. You obviously can’t do this when it’s raining outside on a Sunday afternoon. And eating fresh fruits when the mere thought of leaving your warm bed gives you goosebumps may be a bit much. But you can certainly enjoy an incredibly comforting warm crumble.

Mango sauce. Mango and banana sauce. (Almost there). Mango and Banana warm tart. CRUMBLE! It’s almost 4pm, we need to hurry and make this happen just in time for when the family wakes up from their nap. My little sister joined the experiment. 2 chefs ready to change the world of crumbles. She prepped the fruit, I made the dough: team work makes the dream (or in this case, the crumble) work!
