I love baking using my little ramekins! They are ideal for preparing individual portions of food for all of your guests so you can serve them without the hassle of worrying how to cut up that cake so that everyone gets an even amount. I have tried out tens of different ramekin recipes and I want to share the best ones with you here.
In this post I’m going to show you guys how I prepare my individual berry crumbles. Most people love chocolate desserts but I feel that we should also get some fruit in there once in a while. The combination of cinnamon and berries is simply mouth-watering and the delicious crumble is what binds it all together. If you prefer other fruit, feel free to substitute my blueberry filling with another one. Apple also works wonderfully!
- measuring cups
- a large mixing bowl
- a whisk
- a stand mixer
- a rubber scraper
- a pastry blender
- 8 ceramic ramekins
- a jelly roll pan
- parchment paper
- 2 cups of freshly ground flour OR sprouted flour
- ½ cup of soft butter
- 2 ½ t. of baking powder
- ¼ t. of sea salt
- ¾ cup of whole cane sugar
- 2 t. of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- ½ cup of whole milk
- 2 cups of fresh blueberries
- ½ cup of whole cane sugar
- ½ cup of freshly ground flour
- ¼ cup of butter
- 1 t. of powdered cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Butter the ramekins, place them on the jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper, and set them aside.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and sea salt using a whisk.
- Use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment to beat the butter in a separate bowl for about 30 seconds.
- Add in the sugar and beat for another 3 minutes until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
- Steadily add in the beaten egg and the vanilla extract.
- Now it’s time to add the flour mixture and the milk to the stand mixer bowl. Do it gradually, alternating the ingredients. Mix the mixture on low speed after each addition.
- Transfer the batter to each ramekin.
- Sprinkle the tops with fresh blueberries.
- For the crumble, combine the flour, sugar, and cinnamon using a fork.
- Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the mixture. Combine everything using a pastry blender or your fingers.
- Sprinkle the crumble topping on top of each ramekin so that the blueberries are fully covered.
- Put the ramekins in the oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. You will know they are ready when the crumble top becomes golden brown.
- Take them out of the oven and cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
Enjoy your fragrant and delicious berry crumbles!
