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 not 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.
Note: Crumble topping can be made in bulk and stored in freezer for many months.
