Black Cherry Crumble Bars
March 4, 2013 in Uncategorized
It feels like just the other day that I was at Pick n Pay head office for the Finest Range launch and one of the items in my goodie bag was a jar of Black Cherry and Aniseed Jam and, while the jar was jumping up and down at me begging to become part of a black forest gateau, I resisted the temptation. I have been trying to save the big cakes for really special occassions and it is just simply more practical to fill the cookie jar instead.
I found a recipe for Blueberry Crumble bars and since blueberries are no longer in season, used the jar of Black Cherry and Aniseed Jam instead. The Black Cherry Crumble bars turned out really well and the kids enjoy having them with a tall glass of ice cold milk.
