Apple Berry Crumble Cake






Apple Berry Crumble Cake

Happy Diwali all, hope all those that are celebrating have a lovely day filled with most importantly delicious indulgent cake. This is not a typical Indian sweet that is served on Diwali however it still taste just as good, especially with a spoon of thick creamy custard. The perfect combination of sweet crunchy crumble on top of soft sharp fruit all baked with a moist fluffy cake underneath. This also makes a great dinner party desert during these colder autumn evenings, especially if you are not sure if you want a crumble or cake as it’s the best of both worlds. I really enjoyed baking this recipe and hope you all get to enjoy a warm slice soon.
