This delicious, tangy fruit topping goes with almost any fruit. Try it with chilled fresh apricots, sliced bananas with red cherries, etc. From Best of Scandinavian Cooking. I haven't tried this yet so the cooking time for the crumbs is an estimate. If you get to this before I do, let me know how long it took to brown.
- 1⁄2 cup pumpernickel bread, crumbs (fine soft crumbs) or 1⁄2 cup rye breadcrumbs (fine soft crumbs)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons raw sugar (or more) or 2 tablespoons brown sugar (or more)
- 1 cup plain yogurt or 1 cup sour cream, chilled
- 4 apricots, chilled (or other fruit) or 4 bananas (or other fruit) or 4 cups red cherries (or other fruit)
- Slowly saute bread crumbs in butter until toasted and very crisp, stirring frequently.
- Allow crumbs to cool and drain on paper towel.
- Mix with sugar to sweeten.
- Whip chilled yogurt until smooth, turn into serving bowl and sprinkle with crumb mixture.
- Spoon over chilled fruits.
Easy and delicious !! I used wholemeal crumbs that were in my freezer from a leftover loaf, raw sugar plus a pinch of cinnamon. The crumbs then went over diced cooked apples and plain unsweetened yogurt - yum !! Made for ZWT 9.
Although I usually try to follow recipe & not change things very much, that was probably not the case when I made yours! I already had enough dried bread crumbs onhand, but they were coarse & from a loaf of whole grain bread ~ I simply melted the butter & added it to the bread crumbs, then spread them out on some paper towel for 15-20 minutes, then went from there with the sugar! I also used a fat-free vanilla yogurt, & after finishing this crumb topping, it all went over a couple of bowls of freshly pitted cherries! All that just to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed your recipe, & I'll be keeping a copy of it around to make again in the future! Thanks for sharing it!
