Apple and Cinnamon are a match made in heaven,isn't it? The smell of cooked Apple with a hint of Cinnamon is really to-die-for.The only time I disagreed with this was when I had Apple-Pie.I had read so much about Apple-Pie and the lattice design on top seemed to sing to me whenever I passed by it.I had no clue as to how it would taste[this was some 6-7 years back].We were in Spenser Plaza,tired and hungry after all the shopping and I though it was the right time to try this one out.
We bought a slice of Apple-Pie and a huge glass of Cold Coffee and dreamed us going into heaven once we had a bite of it.But wham..it was [in one word] yuck!The crust was soggy and the apple smelled funny,we swore never to touch "that pie" ever again.
Well,this post is not about Apple-Pie,but something more delicious and something which is easier to whip up.This one was also new to me,I had never had it before and the combination with Custard sauce pulled me to it.The aroma coming out of the oven when it was baking assured me of its taste.It was gone in no time as we had some friends over for lunch.They were a bit sad faced when I told them there was no cake this time,but seeing the expression on their faces after they had a spoon of it assured me that "aaal eez well"!!!
Apple Crumble with Vanilla Custard Sauce
Recipe source - Nags of Edible Garden,Original recipe by Mallika Badrinath
Verdict - As Nags says,the combination of Apple Crumble with Custard sauce will make you crave for it.The only thing I found amiss was,the recipe calls for using butter at room temperature whereas I felt butter straight out of the fridge would make better,even bread crumbs like texture when mixed with the flour.And also,I thought that the butter was a bit much,75gms for 1 cup of flour would have been ideal.Not that it affected the taste in anyway,hell I don't even have leftovers so that I could warm it up and eat!!!
