A tasty and piping hot little crumble. I would increase the golden raisins, and also would have loved more orange flavor; consider adding more juice and a touch of the rind as well. I also would have liked the filling to be sweeter, and would use more sugar or a sweet variety of apple, such as Braeburn, next time. Since the crumbles weren't too sweet, however, I'd consider making them part of a weekend breakfast, rather than dessert, next time.
As a side note, I kept things simple with dessert tonight because I was eager to try the new line of frozen entrees from vegan restaurant Candle Cafe for dinner. Although I don't advocate frozen prepared foods as a general rule (too much sodium, and generally a steep price tag), frozen entrees are a convenient indulgence every once in a while. But more importantly, I was eager to support Candle Cafe's efforts. Do check out the frozen entrees, and if you live in New York, I highly recommend visiting Candle Cafe or it's fancier counterpart, Candle 79, for the fresh version of their food sometime soon.
