If you are looking for recipes using those lovely raspberries in your backyard or farmers market, then may I suggest this raspberry and coconut crumble. It's easy to put together and it's a great alternative to more cake-like concoctions.
I've served it both with vanilla ice cream and thick yogurt/sour cream, and currently prefer the latter, as it's not as sweet then - just fruity and summery :)
Raspberry and Coconut Crumble
Adapted from Swedish Allt of Mat magazine (12/2008)
400 g fresh or frozen raspberries
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp potato starch/potato flour or cornflour
150 g butter
180 g coconut flakes (unsweetened, I used MEIRA)
85 g (100 ml (less than half a cup) caster sugar
60 g (less than half a cup) plain/all-purpose flour
whipped cream (season with vanilla, if you like)
Gently mix raspberries with sugar and potato flour and scatter on a buttered pie dish.
Melt the butter. Combine coconut flakes, sugar and flour in a medium-sized bowl, pour over the melted butter and stir until combined. Crumble the mixture on top of raspberries.
Bake in the middle of a pre-heated 180 C/350 F oven for 15-20 minutes, until the coconut crumble is light golden brown.
Serve warm or cold with some whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or Saare Smetana.
