Tropical Crumble - Tuesdays with Dorie
Tropical Crumble

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Gaye of Laws of the Kitchen chose Tropical Crumble on pages 418-419 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

This should have been a full size dessert with a baked crumble on top... but I was making this for one and I just came back from a pilates class. I just started taking pilates and find it interesting...I'm finding muscles that I didn't know I had. :) Anyway, I'm enjoying the class and decided to make a quick and lighter version of Dorie's Tropical Crumble.

For my one person serving inspired by Dorie's recipe, I cut one medium banana and half a mango. Some butter and brown sugar are heated and the fruit is gently browned. At the end, I tossed in some chopped pecans.

This was a perfect little dessert for watching The Closer and resting some sore muscles! :)

I am loving the caramelised banana peeking out of your crumble. It looks delish! Thanks for baking with me.

The caramelized fruit was really great, so I expect yours was very tasty. My topping was soft, which was ok but not too pretty.

I love the idea of an un-crumble - not only does it look tantalizing, but it's practically health food!
