Apple Crumble Tart

Monday, May 11, 2009





Baked this apple crumble tart sometime ago, it’s a recipe that i have created myself, combining all sorts of recipes and ideas from cookbooks, internet and my own experiments. Initially, i had actually wanted to bake a basic apple pie, but later choose this crumble topping because it look more interesting than the usual one. I thought the crumble topping has more texture compared to the flat top in the usual apple pie.

Baking wise, it’s no more different than to do the crumble mixture and to add them as topping. They came out quite crips and crutchy on the outside and soft and tender in the inside.             Very yummy! 😀

Wanted to pat myself on the back!  He he he…..
