My last few articles have been very technical, so to slow the pace down a little, here’s an Apple Crumble I made the other day. I was kind of winging it but it turned out pretty good. I’ll write it here so I can remember the recipe.
Before you start, preheat your oven to 180°.
- 850g Apples (I used “Pink Lady” apples but any kind would probably do)
- 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
Core the apples, cut them in half or quarters and slice them with the skin still on. Mix the sugar with about 50ml of water and put it with the apples in a pan. Stew until soft.
- 175g Plain Flour
- 100g Brown Sugar
- 125g Butter
- 100g Oats
- ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
Put the oats into a food processor and lacerate them into small pieces. Then dump in the rest of the ingredients and process until it is well mixed.
Put the stewed apples into a baking dish. There was some liquid left over from the stewing, I did not drain it.
Then sprinkle the crumble over the top. Do not pack it down, you want it light and crumbly.
I baked it for about 50 minutes, it was OK but that was probably too long. Next time I’ll try about 30 minutes.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. You’ll get about 12 serves from these quantities.
