Easy Apple Crumble
Ever since I made my raspberry crumble, my husband has been begging (and I mean literally begging) for me to make another batch.
But the thing is, I like variety in my life and prefer to challenge myself to create new recipes as opposed to recreating the same the meal.
And…well, I couldn’t be bothered. So I had to come up with a solution…
There I said it. I couldn’t be bothered. *gasp!
Sometimes spending an hour in the kitchen is not on the cards.
And that is when there needs to be a simple alternative. Quick, easy, tasty and easy to fool one’s husband into believing it took hours of hardcore baking.
It only took me 10 minutes from start to finish. Shhh….
So I had to potter around the kitchen making noises and even threw a splash of flour on my face and in my hair to make my baking efforts look more arduous and authentic.
On a side note, I haven’t used apples in my recipes or eaten apples for quite a few months. Since I tend to focus more on veggies, the poor apple has been left behind. Whilst I still like to eat fruit, I do recommend keeping high sugar fruits to a minimum and opting for veggies instead. JUST GO GREEN! 🙂
Secretly just between you and me, this recipe is more than easy but the end product will keep your guests fooled into thinking you slaved away in the kitchen.
Don’t you just love a dessert like that?
