“Fruit falls when you shake the tree. You have to keep making things happen.”

Peach & Cherry GF Granola Crumbles … deliciousness in little pots. Sorry I’ve been MIA for a bit, but was off to get the daughter into college. It’s been a busy last few months. Uni admissions, flights to Bangalore and back, and the times finally arrived for her to chase her dreams. She’s off to do design and art, something she absolutely loves, and earned a well deserved place in the college of her dreams.

Peaches and cherriesSo this was a quick dessert rustled up for her just before she left. It had everything she loved. Fruit, fruit and more fruit. Summer is for stone fruit and I just can’t get enough of them. The bazaars are flooded … mangoes, cherries, peaches, plums, apricots. As always, so much to do, and so little time. Peach & Cherry Crumble Gluten free Fruit crumbles are fun. Real fun. You can find several crumbles on PAB, gluten free and otherwise. They take minutes to rustle up, bake beautifully and make for wonderful summer dessert. Serve them warm, at room temperature, or chilled  … this is one dessert which will never let you down.

Peach & Cherry Crumble Gluten free I wanted to go gluten free this time around. It’s always fun to push your boundaries. I eventually ran out of time and decided to top the fruit with the GF Multigrain Granola which I make every week. It’s a great, great breakfast option, one that the better half looks forward to every morning.

Multigrain Granola And now I discover that it’s a great  option for topping bakes too! What could be better? The daughter absolutely LOVED it; scrape, scrape, scrape was all I could hear! Surprisingly the son loved it tremendously too. He’s a bit iffy when he gets a fruit overload in dessert. This time around however he asked if there were seconds!

Peach & Cherry Crumble Gluten free Of course I rolled up my eyes and declared he was lucky he got even one portion under the circumstances! The dessert almost never happened given all the running around that was going on! Peach & Cherry Crumble Gluten free  I’ve got some delicious mini cherry pies coming up soon! Do you love stone fruit as much as me? So what is your favourite fruit based dessert on the go?

Before I go, I’d love to announce the winner of the Rs 6000 Flipkart gift voucher from the contest sponsored by posted on the GF Mango Almond Quark Roulade. I’m thrilled to announce that the winner is Priya. Thank you all for entering. I loved hosting this!

About me: I am a freelance food writer, recipe developer and photographer. Food is my passion - baking, cooking, developing recipes, making recipes healthier, using fresh seasonal produce and local products, keeping a check on my carbon footprint and being a responsible foodie! I enjoy food styling, food photography, recipe development and product reviews. I express this through my food photographs which I style and the recipes I blog. My strength lies in 'Doing Food From Scratch'; it must taste as good as it looks, and be healthy too. Baking in India, often my biggest challenge is the non-availability of baking ingredients, and this has now become a platform to get creative on. I enjoy cooking immensely as well.
