My adorable cuties are so forgiving that absorbs all my flaws and oozes out only the fruity juices of taste. The luscious red lava that was flowing from the sides along with the beautiful smell of baking of fruit are the enough reason to these ……..yum, lovely and absolute delicious and once you have made them, you don’t need a recipe to make them again.
If you are new to baking, it is the easiest way to start and introduce yourself to baking. It was the perfect combination of tartness and sweetness of fruits with goodness of oats and wheat, what more one can ask for, in a bowl of dessert.
I strongly believe that the uncertainty that comes with baking is something which even a seasoned bakers experienced. Sometimes ingredients behave in an totally different manner. I remember when I was new to baking, I just keep on opening my oven after every 5 minutes to check, how it is rising, resulted in an cake that turned out into a hard biscuit. However the curiosity is still there, but now I know to behave.
I decided to skip my lunch to have these in plenty. They can be made using different fruit combination, whichever fruits available. They can be eaten cold as well as hot. I have in hand peaches, cherries and plums. I put them all without bothering about the weight as mentioned in the recipe. If you have over ripened or under ripened fruits lying in the freeze that you believe not going to be touched by anyone, put them all in a bowl and here goes a perfect healthy dessert in minutes.
So make the best of the abundance of fruit in whichever season you are in.
Crisps are baked with the fruit mixture on the bottom with a crumb topping. The crumb topping can be made with flour, nuts, bread crumbs, cookie or graham cracker crumbs, or even breakfast cereal.
