Apple Crumble Cake – Gluten Free(Optional)

Woot woot, here is my 300th post…

300th post has to be something sweet, right? I still remember when I first started this website, I truly wondered if I would be able to post recipes constantly. I also wondered how I would come up with so many recipes that would be  of interest to my readers. It’s been two years now and I am still wondering. But this time around, I am wondering on what recipe to post next because my recipe list has grown so fast and I am trying to keep up. My picasa album is overflowing with food pictures that I click everyday and my laptop is full of recipes that I have tried – recipes from my mom, family, friends and others. I wish I could blog everyday and share all the recipes with everyone out there, sigh.

Both blogging and cooking have been the two things that I’ve done with utmost interest. After a long day at work, I relax and release my stress by cooking and blogging. Above all, I can’t thank you all enough for following this blog and keeping me motivated. You guys are the sole reason why this blog is still up and running. I know I have said this many times and I will keep saying this as long as this blog is alive. Thank you!

Alright, I am getting emotional now, let me talk about this apple crumble cake. Last weekend, I tried making this and it came out absolutely delicious. I used gluten free flour instead of all purpose flour so that my hubby could enjoy it too and he gobbled up with so much greed. I loved the addition of ground cinnamon and the house smelled divine while the cake was baking in the oven. A perfect dessert you could serve in the evening along with a cup of hot cappuccino.
