Quince Crumble Recipe
Since it would be easier to eat, I used portioned soufflé cups, which I think was a very good choice. Since quince is a sour fruit by nature, its taste is softened with honey. When I saw that no one made quince crumble before, I thought, is it because the quinces don't soften? Under the influence of this doubt, before placing the dough, I put the baking tins with honey quince in the oven and waited for 10 minutes for the honey and quince to be absorbed and for the quince to soften a little. After I took the cups out of the oven, I shared the dough on them and put them back in the oven.
When the dough started to brown and honey-flavored quince juice started to boil over the edges of the pots, it had such a nice smell that it is impossible to describe. I said okay this is it. Even if it tastes bad, everything is worth this smell. We sat down to eat while I took the cups from the oven and left them to cool. After we ate our meal under that wonderful smell, the webmaster, who was waiting for 1 hour to eat dessert, returned to the table with a crumble in one hand and a dessert spoon in the other. After taking the first bite, I understood from the expression on his face that his taste was also on point, and I was completely relieved. Public order was perfect and it was time for me to taste the dessert :)
Believe me, I got stuck in the last paragraph of this article that I wrote so far without breathing. I didn't know how to describe the dessert :) first of all, the irresistible taste of butter in the crunchy dough (which I don't really like butter) and its smell, and then that sweet or sour flavor that is formed by mixing the honey with the water left by the quinces, that you can't decide until you're finished, and all of these make an incredible match. The best state is when it is warm half an hour after it comes out of the oven. I think those who say I don't distinguish between summer and winter, and eat them every season, should crown this amazing taste with 1 ball of maraş ice cream. I guarantee you won't regret it :)
