Individual Berry Crumble in a Ramekin

I find that when I'm home alone, or when my kids and husband all decide to cook for themselves, I like making individual dishes baked in a ramekin in my toaster oven. I keep toying around with the idea of doing a blog of recipes designed for one person and cooked in a ramekin. What do you think?

Individual Berry Crumble in a Ramekin

Fill a small ramekin with fresh or frozen (thawed) berries, about 2/3 full
Sprinkle with 2 tsp of sugar

In a cereal bowl, combine with a pastry cutter:
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp rolled oats
Pinch of cinnamon
Dash of salt

Sprinkle butter combination over berries. In a toaster or small oven, bake at 350ºF for about 8 minutes, or until top is brown and berries are bubbly.

This recipe is about 350 calories, 6 grams protein, 8 grams dietary fiber, 10 grams fat, 131 mg sodium, and 18 grams sugars.

Revisiting Cinnamon Rolls

Scald and set aside to cool:
1 cup milk

6 T butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs

2 T yeast
1 T sugar
1 cup warm water

When the above steps are completed, combine them and add 6 1/2- 7 cups flour and 1 tsp salt. Knead well and place in a greased bowl. Raise until double and roll out. Sprinkle with cut-up butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and slice into 1 1/2 inch rolls. Place on greased cookie sheet and allow to rise again. Bake at 375º for 12 - 15 minutes.

3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 square butter
1 tsp vanilla

Mix ingredients, adding milk until desired consistency.
