Warm apple crunch crumble with honey pepper yoghurt

There has been a lot of finger tapping and leg twitching. Perhaps a touch of pacing as well.
You see, I arrived home on Monday, and after the obligatory immediate unpacking and settling in, I was eager to dust off my blogs. Unfortunately, the eagerness only resulted in the hovering of my fingers above the keyboard, unable to decide which letter to press first. I hovered for a good portion of four days waiting for the Inspiration Fairy to come and sprinkled her dust and send my brain into a frenzy of creativity, but all I got was hand cramps. And then I thought, well, you have quite a few posts backed up, waiting only for text, why not post something to give you a little more time until your brain switches itself back on. And so this is my filler post. Never fear, I expect the Inspiration Fairy's flight shall be touching down very soon indeed...

ease: 5/5.
prep time: 20mins.
cooking time: 15mins.
total: 35mins.

taste: 2.5/5. Very perplexing.

I am trying to form words of what this tasted like to me but I've got nothing. It wasn't unpleasant but it wasn't really pleasant either. I could taste each of the inidivdual components without really enjoying them. Instead of melding together and forming a delicious synergy they fell apart and stood around, not really doing anything like a room full of very awkward strangers.

would I make it again: No. But perhaps my taste buds just didn't get it, yours might.

recipe:  Warm apple crunch crumble with honey pepper yoghurt


  1. A gorgeous crunch! So comforting.



  2. I go through this felling of lost inspiration from time to time as well, but it's usually until next great recipe I come by :)
    good luck darling :)

    love this photo of your apple crunch, beautiful background, works so well here. is it floor mosaic or a table??? so pretty :)

  3. It's a little table we keep on the front veranda - it reminds me of Fall :)

  4. I know what you mean about the tastes just sitting next to each other rather than coming together for the recipe to become greater than it's components. Sorry the taste was meh, but rest assured that the photo is gorgeous as usual :).

  5. Oh yikes. That's a shame it was a no go, because it looks mighty tasty! But y'know, it does look a little... off. Ya know? Like the flavours wouldn't quite work?

    Welcome home, by the by! Hope you loved HK TO THE MAX.

  6. I like the idea of your yogurt topping...very different. Will be using that with MY crunch recipe, especially since you weren't too happy with yours!

  7. Sounds very interesting with the pepper yoguhrt....

  8. Welcome home! Cant wait for some HK posts when inspiration strikes. The ingredients here look wonderful - pumpkin seeds, orange rind. It's a shame about the taste. At least it afforded us a lovely picture though :)
