German Apple Crumble

Kimberly Kolligs


Got this from my mother-in-law in Germany. I had to convert it from German so I took some liberties. I was confused at first - I wasn't sure if the ingredients would combine correctly, but I just had to work it out. :-) Still, it came out so good! Give it a try

PS You can use plums instead of apples too.
