If you crave for a sweet desert at anytime of the week, the the answer would be MAKE A CRUMBLE. It is so easy to make, just calls for few ingredients which you already have in your pantry and it is quite forgiving recipe too. If you have any fruits like apples, strawberries, pear or anything no too watery in your hand then you are in business.
The cool thing about this is, you can make it to your guest who drop in without any notice. You can make this into individual portions to serve them. Once afternoon after our lunch, i started craving for something sweet. The only fruit i had on hand is some ripe sweet mangoes. So i decided to make a crumble just for myself and got into action. Put few things together and 20 mins later i had a yummy desert for solitary indulgence.Hope you like this and off you go to the recipe..
