Apple Crumble

Updated: Mar 6

This recipe is a family favourite dessert. I remember my mom making apple crumble when I was a young child. I'll never forget the delightful smell cinnamon and sweet apples filling the house on a Sunday afternoon. The sweet crunchy topping with the tangy soft apples is a winning combination! It's one of the simplest and healthiest desserts you can make.
