Single Serving Apple Crumble

Single serving apple crumble. Plenty of buttery crumbs, chunks of sweet apple and a big dollop of vanilla ice cream (optional). No waste and no over eating.

FINALLY finished my test guys! So I’m back in business. For the past few weeks I’ve been studying my ass off. The test was last Tuesday so the outcome is out of my hands now. Time to relax. Time to bake. And because it’s the month of new year’s resolutions, I decided it’s time to share my recipe for single serving apple crumble with you guys. Yup, apple crumble for ONE. No wasting food, no over-eating. And if you feel like being extra healthy, find someone to share this single serving with and you’ve got dessert for two. My boyfriend and I did anyway. And as for vegans: swap butter for vegan butter, find your favorite pint of vegan ice cream and enjoy a delicious vegan dessert for one. Who needs friends when you can have dessert for one right? (Juuusst kidding. Love my friends ♥)

Hi lovelies. Today, we’re going to talk about coconut and chocolate. Because coconut and chocolate are a match made in heaven. I’ve combined these flavors to make crumble bars. A base of chocolate, topped with coconut custard and finished with crunchy chocolate crumbles. Even if you don’t really like coconut, you might like these. The coconut flavor isn’t too heavy. But you can also easily turn these into vanilla chocolate crumble bars.

Here I go again with the muffins. Sorry -not so sorry-, I just love love love making muffins. They’re so easy to make and easy to eat on-the-go too. Today, I’ll show you how to make the best moist and fluffy apple muffins with a crunchy crumbly top. These muffins are loaded with cinnamon so they’re perfect for this season. For this recipe, I used Gala apples. Why? Because I had those on hand and was too lazy to take another trip to the supermarket lol. You can basically use any apples you like. Granny Smith’s would be great too. It just depends on what kind of apples you like. So be lazy like me and use whatever you have on hand. Read more

6 INGREDIENT Lemon Crumble Bars

One of my boyfriend’s favorites: Creamy lemon stuffed bars with a crunchy topping. Effortless treats and only 6 ingredients!

 A while ago, I was browsing through my recipe index (yes I browse through my own recipe index. Don’t judge haha..) and noticed I haven’t shared my recipe for lemon bars with you guys yet. Strange, because lemon bars are one of my bf’s absolute favorites. And they’re not only his favorite, but mine too. But can you blame us? Lemon bars are creamy, sweet AND have a crunchy topping. All at the same time! I just love sweet desserts with a hint of sour. And did I mention the size of these bars? Bite-size that is. Super easy to eat. Perfect for parties. Honestly, you won’t need to take out the plates for these babies, some (fancy) napkins will do just fine (in my lazy opinion anyway).

To make these bars you’ll need just two components. Yes, two! You’ll need a dough, which you’ll use for the base ánd the crumbles, and a lemon cream mixture. Both of these are just super easy to make.

For the dough, you’ll rub some butter, flour, confectioner’s sugar and salt together until you get a crumbly mixture. You can either use a pastry cutter or your fingers. The latter is quite a workout. And that’s it for the dough. Press about 3/4 of the mixture in the pan and reserve the rest for the crumbles.

For the lemon cream, you’ll need sweetened condensed milk and lemons. Use both lemon juice and lemon zest for the perfect lemon bars. Mix the ingredients until combined and pour it onto your base.

Scatter the crumbles on top of the lemon cream and you’re ready to throw it all into the oven. Make sure you’ve lined your baking pan with baking paper, because it makes the bars so much easier to remove from the pan once they’ve cooled. See how these lemon bars are dangerously easy? And trust me when I tell you they don’t taste or look easy at all! The perfect way to mislead your guests. No effort, maximum flavor.

A while back my boyfriend planned to visit his old colleagues and asked me if I had time to bake a something delicious for him to bring along as a treat. As almond muffins were on my to-do list for a while (and as I haven’t baked any muffins for a while), I decided to make chocolate chips almond muffins for him. Bakery style. Fragrant and (ofcourse) super soft. As a bonus, I added buttery crunchy streusel on top. That’s right, streusel! Cause, who doesn’t like streusel, right? These muffins are super fluffy with chunks of almond (and chocolate!) and a delicious crunchy muffin top. And did you know muffins are crazy easy too? I love baking muffins. No fuss and little dishes 😉
