Guilty Apple Crumble/ 禁断のアップル・クランブル

Today I made apple crumble - with some feeling of guilt...

I had one afternoon tea last week, and another this week.  Four more are lined up in the coming weeks, not to mention some cream teas as well (and these are all for work).
Putting on weight is not something that might happen - it is something that WILL happen - if I don't try to stop it from happening...
(For non-UK residents: Afternoon Tea consists of finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and some pastries.  Cream Tea is tea and scones only).

Therefore, I am on a strict - well, kinda -  "don't bake any cake or cookies" scheme right now.
It's really hard..  :(

So...  I was making rhubarb jam, and baking quiche for dinner, and was trying to convince myself that it was just like making pastries..  didn't work.

And, before I even realised it, apple crumble was in the oven.  Well... apple crumble isn't really a cake.. is it??
I use brown sugar for the crumble, add some walnuts, and serve with greek yhoghurt, instead of custard or creme fraiche (ok, because I couldn't find creme fraiche at Tesco Metro..)
So..  even if this is against my scheme.. I think I can call it a healthy dessert...  I think..

しかし...何か作りたい!! 何か焼きたい!!!!! (←ちょっと危険)
