Crunchy Apple Crumble..

One of my favourite desserts is anything with apple! Apple crumble, apple tart, apple slices, even plain stewed apple!


When in season, apples should definitely be used! From August on, we always have an abundance of tasty apples as we grow them ourselves.

The best thing about apples, is that they are extremely versatile! So many dishes can be made from this humble fruit! Enjoy :)




Ingredients:

200g Plain Flour
110g Butter
40g Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
4 Cooking Apples
50g Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Method:

Crumble:

1. Preheat oven to 190c. In a large bowl, sieve the flour. Then rub in the butter, until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

2. Add the sugar and cinnamon.

Apples:

3. Core, peel and dice the apples. Add the apples into the bottom of a 23cm circular dish (or similar size).

4. Sprinkle over the sugar evenly and the cinnamon.

5. Then, using your hand, spread the crumple topping evenly over the apple mixture, ensuring every part is covered.

6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until evenly browned.

And that's it! Enjoy :) This goes great with custard or ice cream, or even both! It stays well in the fridge for about 3 days.





*Raspberry crumble: Add 150g Raspberries to the apples at stage 4. This is an unusual, but sweet variation.

*Healthier version: Try replacing 50g flour with 50g porridge oats.
