So I made an apple crumble.

It seems to be a Friday tradition for me. Last time, I had a few guy friends over and we bonded over baking. It was rather funtastic. Tonight was relatively lonely, though not unentertaining.

I feel recently that I have got a very strong xenophilic urge. Like I want to be with people and make food for people. I probably miss being in a relationship.

Mannn, if I got into a relationship now, I would probably make hella awesome food and would make it for her... Aww, the thought of cooking something for someone I like a lot makes me all mushy...


This is a cooking blog.

So here's the cooking!

Apple crumble! Basically, I got six (big) apples, peeled and cored them. Sliced them into pieces, then put them in a pot with some cinnamon, sugar and a bit of water. I then stewed them on the stove for awhile. While they were stewing, I made the crumble mixture. I got some flour added some pieces of chopped butter and combined the two in my hands until the mixture was like bread crumbs. I then added sugar and mixed it some more and kept adding more flour/ butter/ sugar until I thought I had enough. Basically it depends on how much apple you use and the size of the baking thing. I made sure the mixture was sweet by tasting a bit.

I then put the stewed apples (I left them there for a bit too long, usually you should take them off the heat once you can put a fork through them easily) into the baking thing and spread them out. I put the crumble mixture ontop and baked at 180C for some time (maybe half an hour?).

I don't think it was hot enough so I have left it in the hot oven to kind of dry and finish cooking.

So that's the score. Apple crumble is delicious.

Oh, I also found some compounded dark chocolate and macadamia nuts in my cupboard, so I may make brownies in the near future.

Bake away from here!
