Apple Crumble Cake – For Those With Little Time to Spare

 

When days get shorter and nights longer, I sometimes just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen making a cake. My sister recommended me to try this super fast apple crumble cake and I couldn’t believe how easy and quick it was.

If you can get hold of ready made apple sauce, like the one sold at Lidl’s, or use apple jam and own a food processor, than this cake will only take 5 minutes in preparation. Otherwise it’s not more than 20 minutes, dependent on how quickly you can peel and chop apples.

Anni’s Apple Pie in the Sky

This Apple Pie recipe is one of my family’s long-time favourite. My mum, sister and I know how to make it, to the delight of my father who can eat half in one go, unless we stop him and hide it. Needless to say it’s his ultimate favourite.

I know apples are available all year round and for many not one of the most exciting fruits but don’t be fooled, apples are at their best now and should be given the respect they deserve.
