Apple Crumble

Have you noticed something? I was just going through this month’s post and the majority has been sweets! In any form to say… This month totally justifies my blog name as well! Please don’t think I have sweets all throughout the day… That’s definitely not true! I do make sweets on and off, but I make it small quantity so that we all enjoy it in moderation, just enough to satisfy our craving.

This month, she decided to start the challenge. Every month, she gives two sweet dishes – a desi one and a fusion one which the group members are supposed to try and post within the month. Being a total sweet tooth, I took a plunge into this group. I keep trying fusion sweet dishes since they are more easier to make but making Indian sweets always freaks me out, mainly because the length and the complication of the procedures. I wanted to get rid of that fear mainly.   This month, she had given us Basundi as the Indian dessert and Eggless Chocolate Pancakes as the fusion one.
