Apple Crumble

Hi there,
I went apple picking last weekend and managed to gather some scrumptious Granny Smiths. I was planning in making an apple pie, but my schedule got so hectic that I decided to go for its less fussy (distant) step cousin – apple crumble.

Apple Crumble  (Adapted from BBC Good Food)

Ingredients
For the filling
3 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced to 1″
4 tbsp brown sugar sugar
A pinch of cinnamon
1/3 raisin

For the crumble
175g all purpose flour
70 g golden caster sugar
40 g dark brown sugar
110g cold butter
A pinch of cinnamon
A pinch of salt

Direction

Preheat the oven to 375 F/ 190C. Toss the apples with the sugar, cinnamon, raisin together and put in a tray of your choice. (I used a 20cm square dish.) Flatten down with your hand to prevent too much crumble falling through.

Put the flour and sugar with a good pinch of salt and cinnamon.
Add in small chunks of butter and use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
(You could also use a food processor on the pulse function.)

Pour the crumb mix over the apple mixture. Gently press the surface with the back of the fork so the crumble holds together and goes crisp.

Set on a baking tray and put in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until the top is golden and the apples feel very soft when you insert a small, sharp knife. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Serve with ice-cream or custard for extra yumminess.

Bon Appétit!
