“And there never was an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~ Neil Gaiman
A crumble is one of the most un-daunting desserts I will offer at Kitchen Therapy.
An apple crumble is a classic English dessert, and can be made with any kind of fruit. The crumble has its origination from the World War 2 during the time of food rationings. Typically served with ice cream, custard or cream, this dish offered a quick dessert with lesser portions of ingredients than a pastry would require. In order to save more flour, oats or breadcrumbs were added. Thus we have the crispy crumble!
The crumble is my easy way out to serving an eggless dessert and can be fancied up with some raisins and cranberries, and served in individual mini ramekins.
The stewed apples and the crumble can be made individually beforehand and assembled and baked within 25 minutes, and so is an ideal option for big dinner parties.
