Apple Crumble


Another recipe adapted from “The Incredible Spicemen” of BBC, it was drooling out when I saw this recipe and thought of preparing. My kids loved this dish a lot and they wanted me to again, also the first time the clicks was bad. The second time the taste, aroma, texture and clicks everything was fantastic. Still this my kids keep drooling when I say the Apple crumble. A very easy, simple, heavenly dessert.

As it’s Friday, I am taking this to Fiesta Friday #68 hosted by angie @thenovicegardener. Let us move on to the recipe…
