Blueberry, Apple and Coconut Crumble

When you need to produce dessert in the nick of time and make do with kitchen staples, a crumble is the way to go. Fresh fruit? Check! Butter and sugar? Check! A bit of flour? Check again!

No need for fancy ingredients and you can pretty much use any fruit you have in the house. This recipe from Redbook Magazine (October 2014) came in handy when SWEETTABLESCAPES needed a sweet finale in minimal time.
