Fruit Melody Crumble Banner

My Fruit melody crumble with caramel sauce is sweet and delicious. If you’ve never made a fruit crumble recipe before, you will love how easy it is to put together. The hardest part is waiting for it to bake while the sweet smell fills your house. Trust me. After you’ve made one of these fruit crumbles you will be adding it to your book of handy dandy dessert recipes. It’s that good.

I used a mixture of apples, pears, cranberries & blueberries for this recipe, but you can adjust the recipe to suit your taste. The best part of a fruit crumble for me, is being able to use up any fruit that is getting too ripe, like the pears I used in the recipe. I also added frozen blueberries that I had forgotten about. They we’re stashed behind a pile of squash in the freezer. Don’t ask me how they got there. I personally think that sometimes I have little helpers (other’s may call them gremlins, fairies or elves). I am not under any circumstances admitting that I have senior moments. No sir, not me!

Gluten Free Fruit Melody Crumble

To make the fruit melody crumble with caramel sauce you will need to peel and cut up your apples and pears. Combine all your fruit in a bowl adding in the cranberries and blueberries. Then pour into a 10 x 10 baking dish.

I zest an orange over the fruit at this point. In the empty bowl mix all your dry ingredients. Add melted butter and mix. Place crumble mixture on top of your fruit and bake. That’s it. Really easy.

After your fruit crumble is done baking you can eat it just the way it is which is delicious or you can add the optional caramel sauce and fresh whip cream. If you add the caramel sauce and whip cream this recipe taste more like a rich bread pudding. My husband loved it. My son and I loved it as well but couldn’t eat that much of it because it was so rich and filling.

The caramel sauce is quick and easy to whip up and only takes 5 ingredients. Make sure you don’t skim on this part. You really want real butter, organic heavy cream, real vanilla & brown sugar to get a rich flavorful caramel sauce. If you’re worried about calories just don’t put as much on your fruit crumble. After all you don’t have to drown it to get the rich flavor. That is unless you want to.
