Apple Crumble Version 2.0

My parents usually buy fruits by the boxes... yes, BOXES!!! I am not talking about those small flat boxes that keep persimmons or kiwis but imagine those apples/oranges type. Twice a month, they'll diligently stock up... since they lived quite close to Selayang's Pasar Borong (wholesale market). Yours truly will usually benefit from this as my mom will shuffed some plastic bags to me and ask me to help myself.

Now the problem is... my fridge tends to be overstocked with them as there are basically two people in the house only. Tall task to finish them all up quickly. Most times I would need to cook or juice them up before the next fresh batch come. This time, they have gotten a box of huge, juicy and sweet granny smith... I was juggling them on my palms and asked hubby what should I do with them. Naturally he replied me "Apple Crumble - same like Coffee Bean one!". Yoooohhh an additional step for me to make the base crust!!!! Grrr just like my previous attempt. I was reminded to improve on that at the same time!!! *bleh, stick tongue out at HIM*
Anyway, as I was taking out the ingredients to make one, I noticed that I only have enough butter to either make the crumble or the crust. Feeling lazy (with lots of joy), I decided to leave the crust out! As I browse thru recipes, I remember FBB's version is the simplest so I quickly note down the ingredients and set out to make the crumble. I added a handful of oats on the crumble for the extra crunch plus experimented with some sesame seeds which didn't make much difference.

I made mine in ramekins and I would say this version does tasted better! Thank you FBB for sharing the recipe. My sister-in-law told me it was nice when eaten cold which I tried; and OH YES indeed it was!!! Tasted great even without all those sinful additions mentioned by FBB :p
