I’m not really one for cooked fruits. No idea as to why that is, I just don’t care for it at all.
In that way, rarely will you see me bake with them: fruit pies, fruit crumbles, fruit compotes; you won’t find those very often on here. I’m just not a fan, what can I say?
But, when the man you love happens to casually mention in a conversation that he’s having this crazy intense craving for a big bowlful of warm berry crumble, topped with a generous serving of melting ice cream, you run to the kitchen to make him one.
And then you kick it up a notch!
Indeed, in making this berry crumble, instead of just adding plain white sugar to my berries to sweeten them up, I decided to drown them in a thick and creamy maple filling, made with pure maple syrup, heavy cream and butter. OH! Talk about rich and deee-lish! Not to mention suh-weeeeeet!
