I used to absolutely love apple crumble. Tangy yet sweet stewed fruit, soft to the bite, covered in the syrupy fruit sauce that almost sticks to your teeth. Then the crumble. The buttery, moreish crumble which can warm even the hardest of hearts.
This my friends, is the food of the Gods. But a vegan alternative is hard to come by, and because I am frightfully lazy, I cannot be bothered making my own. I have a habit of checking the ingredients of almost everything new that I see in the shops in some vain hope of finding something accidentally vegan. More often than not this is a fruitless action, yielding absolutely no results. But, brace yourself my dear readers, because I have discovered something quite magical.
AN ACCIDENTALLY VEGAN AUNT BESSIE'S APPLE CRUMBLE
It comes in at almost 400 calories, which I'm going to be honest, did make me nearly keel over considering it is only a small pot. But I decided that I owed it to myself and my readers to try it. It was ready in less than two minutes which is was very impressed with, but in those two short minutes, the house was filled with the smell of baked apples and sweet buttery crumble. It was as though I had spent the day slaving over this dessert. I removed the crumble from the little black pot and left to cool for a bit and then tucked in.
Reader, it was everything that you would want in an apple crumble and so much more. It was simply a delicious experience and tasted even better than I remembered it to be. Perhaps there is a degree of nostalgia playing into this, but I'm going to ignore that possibility, because that would detract from the puddings deliciousness.
