So What Makes This Apple Crumble So Good?

 So, what makes this apple crumble so good? The answer is that it’s made with love. It all starts by roasting the apples in butter and brown sugar to bring out their natural sweetness. There’s a generous amount of cinnamon sprinkled throughout, which gives each bite an extra kick of flavour as well as some crunch from chopped walnuts on top for texture. But, once you taste how sweet the fruit gets when caramelized in brown sugar, you might not need anything else!
