Apricot and Cardamom Crumble Cake , looks so much harder than it is.

My kitchen was rather full of apricots so I felt the need to bake a cake using them. Mr Muffin loves a crumble so I thought a crumble cake would be just the thing. I think any stone fruit/ banana/ berry would go well, adapt the spices to suit. I really like cardamom and think it very underrated. This is a few recipes sewn together to make loveliness. I had it for lunch today with The Collective Dairy Blood(y) Orange yoghurt.

MMMmmmMMMmmmm, perfect match.

Here it is with the very lovely Collective Dairy Blood(y) Orange Yoghurt. I have to say, no I am not paid, this yoghurt is lovely. Doesn’t taste at all of cheap orange squash or orange lollies (sweets, candy). This may have been my breakfast, I did it for you, honest.
