Yogurt or Sour Cream Crumb Fruit Topping

"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."

    What to do with leftover pumpernickel? Make this great topping! Super easy, I made as directed (using brown sugar). I really liked the crunch and toasted flavor of the crumb, and think I might change the ratio next time and lessen the sugar and increase the crumb. I served over yogurt with peaches and bananas! Thanks for posting Dreamer!! Made for CQ 2017, Scandinavia.

    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!
