Apple Crumble with Vanilla Sauce: Lovely dessert that can warm your heart.

I really love the taste of the baked apple (well, you might know it by now, ^ ^ , I love the soft food). And for today, all I want to do is eating the bake apple!

But how can I bake it without anything else? I have to make a dessert from the apple, so I choose between the cake, pie or crumble. The cake will be out because the apple is not much, pie is, well too fussy. At the end, I choose the less work, the crumble.

For the crumble, you don't have to do anything much. Just mix the flour with butter and sugar until resemble coarse crumb, slice the apple sprinkle with the sugar and that all. The rest is letting the oven do its wonderful job!
And for the sauce, it's very easy too, the time that you use for making it is less than 20 minutes.
I adapt this recipe from the book
I suggest that you should taste the apple, you can use less sugar (1½ tbsp for the sweet one and 2 tbsp for the tart one).
The warm crumble with the fragrance sauce, this dessert is very simple and fulfill my need, and I think, this dessert will warm your heart too.
