Our neighbours had given us a huge tray of apples… to be honest I didn’t expect it to come this early, I thought apples are more an autumn fruit!
Anyway I turn to my trusted crumble recipe originated from BBCgoodfood website. I’ve made a few changes myself and here’s my adopted version.
Annie’s Apple Crumble
- A ceramic dish that measures about 10×7 (inches)
- 500 g Apple (peeled and cored)
- 80 g caster sugar
- 1 tbsp cassis optional
For the crumble
- 85 g butter cold
- 140 g self raising flour
- 50 g light brown sugar
- 50 g chopped walnuts (or pecans) optional
- Preheat oven to gas mark 6
- Cut apples into bitesize chunks, about 1inch cubes. Put cubed apples, sugar and cassis (if using) in a saucepan and cook on low for 15 minutes.
- Pour apples into the ceramic dish.
- Make the crumble topping by whizzing butter and flour together in a food processor, or rub butter in with your fingertips, until it resembles a sandy texture.
- Mix brown sugar and chopped nuts (if using) into butter and flour mixture. Spread it over the stewed apple.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden! Serve hot with either double cream, custard or vanilla ice cream!!
The kids love this and will happily eat 2 bowls drowned with double cream in one setting… let me know how you like yours and what adaptation have you done to yours!
I’m planning to post some more harvest related recipes with courgettes, tomatoes and more apples recipes, so please keep your eyes peeled for those!
