Apple and Strawberry Crumble with a Orange, Sultana & Chocolate Oat Topping

April 6, 2013

Desserts and I

I have a love hate relationship with my desserts.  I love them because they taste so good and I hate them because they taste so good but I can never eat too much.  Nonetheless I always make dessert when I know there is someone around who can enjoy the fruits of my labour… literally.  This really is one of my best crumbles, it is so beautiful.  It symbolises the transition from a cold to a warmer season.  The sun was shining through my kitchen window as I took the crumble out of the oven and poured custard over the steaming fruits.
