My ancestors may be disappointed with me because I didn’t make or buy or post about ohagi (glutinous rice balls usually covered with sweet bean paste) for the Autumnal Equinox Day today, but I made this instead and enjoyed it all by myself. :P (More info. on the national holiday and ohagi is here, if you are interested.)
Apple Crumble (Obachan's Version)
Sorry, ancestors. But the aroma of cooking apples and spices from the oven is just too irresistible on an autumn afternoon like this. And this apple dessert is awfully tasty and easy to make, so nothing could stop me.
I used this recipe, but probably I made a mistake in scaling it down… The crumble did not turn out crumbly at all so I ended up adding more than half a cup of extra flour. I also added a couple of things that were not included in the recipe: a little lemon juice and allspice to the apple filling and finely chopped almond (roasted) to the crumble.
It tasted good even without ice cream
It worked brilliantly. Oh this was such a perfect dessert for this September afternoon. And the good thing is -- I had a lot of crumble left (I really think I made a mistake when scaled down the recipe) and froze it. Next time I can make this apple dessert much more easily ;)
Or it doesn’t always have to be with apples, right?
