Apple Crumble with Vanilla Sauce. A comforting food for your soul!

I have alot of comforting food on my mind. Especially when it rains. (Or even if it doesn't, but it does especially when it's raining.)

Cinnamon Rolls, Chocolate cake, Cheesecake, Ice cream..  My mind is corrupted by all this food. I can even smell it in the back of my mind ( Does that even sounds right???!)

Ok nevermind. Everyone have weird thoughts.

It's a Sunny day today. Looking out of the window, noticing how beautiful the place is, I snapped some photos.

The haze was quite bad over here actually.. But somehow it was quite good that day. 

This tree is going to be chopped off soon. It's going to be so bare.. There's good and bad.
Good because the view is unblocked, bad because... I don't know what's really bad actually. Just that the tree is coming down after sucha long time here. 

Ok, back to here. I love Vanilla sauce. Sweet and with a hinge of vanilla in your tongue. So tempting and delicious. And it goes so well with my Apple Crumble. I think I had too much of that I get bloated. 

So, this is quite easy.. You just prepare all the ingredients needed. Slice the apples, prepare the crumble. Coat your apple with some cinnamon sugar..

And cover the crumble over the apple. And off you go into the oven.

Bake in oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, prepare your Vanilla Sauce. (I didn't have time to take photo for the Vanilla Sauce)

You must be wondering why it's so flat. Because I was using a pie dish. 

Apple Crumble need to be eaten hot and fresh on that day itself. Because of the crumble. Wouldn't taste so nice on the next day of course. 

Yummy. Right after the photos, this goes into my tummy.
