Quick food: Apricot crumble by Majnouna Quick food: Apricot crumble by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

I found this to be a brilliant recipe when I have people coming over and have very little time to bake. It's seasonal, we only get apricots in summer, but seasonal = in harmony with nature = good.

As I said in the previous post fav.me/d5c1dvl , healthy food doesn't have to be boring food. I firmly believe anyone can enjoy a decadent dessert a week without adverse effect – provided you use the most wholesome possible ingredients and you know there's no unidentified crap thrown in. Take butter for instance. Just use good fresh butter from a responsible farm and have the common sense to not put it in your food every day; it really beats fooling oneself with so-called substitutes (look at the ingredient list and tell me you want that in your mouth, plus it makes one feel it's "safer" to eat more, which is the real cause of problems), and it tastes a LOT better. I do use olive oil rather than butter in recipes where it makes sense, but for desserts? Nevah!

Anyway, I'm starting to ramble, but my point is: use real, honest ingredients without fear, and be moderate in your consumption. A good trick is never to bake if you don't have people coming over or people to visit, to make sure most of it gets eaten. Otherwise you might feel force to finish it yourself ^^

In any case this is by no means very decadent a dessert, and it's incredibly delicious.

Funny, as the vast majority of people around the world never have had steak, even if they're not vegetarian...

Ah, that looks so good!

Another great trick is what mom and I do. Instead of butter we use a product called Brummel and Brown, which is actually yogurt. It has the consistency, look and taste of butter but half the calories and no cholesterol. It's perfectly safe for baking, too, as we've been using it for years for all kinds of stuff ranging from dinner to dessert.

These are so great, thanks. They're super easy and really tasty :3

Actually here in the states it's right next to the butter in the grocery store. I'm not sure about in other countries, though.

So I tried it out, with apples instead of apricots, and it's completely amazing. It helps that this is already one of my favorite kinds of dessert; naturally I'd be a little more forgiving if my own cooking didn't turn out well. But I wasn't the only one partaking, and it got rave reviews. Thanks for posting this, I'm sure there are other variations that would turn out nicely as well. I'm going to have to learn to do more things since I'm taking over most of the cooking around my house.

...it's funny. I'm not a huge fan of apricots and yet this looked delicious. I think it's the way you present it. It's so simple and appealing. I look forward to more of your recipes ^.^

[also, it took me a good few minutes to notice the metric measurements. Clearly I don't cook/bake very much [yet]. But I don't mind. The measuring cups/scales I have at home have both metric and American measurements, so I'll figure it out ^.^

Anyway, thanks again for the recipe!

Now we need a recipe for vanilla ice cream with no unidentified crap thrown in.
(though, that actually isn't that hard with the right tools)
