Apple Crumble is without a doubt one of my favourite puddings and in honour of World Apple Day (yes it really is a thing...) yesterday I decided to whip up an apple crumble to celebrate.
With a buttery topping and soft cinammony apples this dessert works best with custard in my opinion although ice-cream works well too if your teeth can handle the hot/cold effect this may have. Definitely a recipe to add to your cooking skills list.
I have to add a note of apology also that my pictures aren't up to their usual standard, blogging after work in the impending winter does not offer the best light conditions...
For the crumble
175g plain flour
110g golden caster sugar
110g cold butter
For the filling
575g Bramley apple
3 medium apples
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
1 tbsp cinammon
Putting it all Together
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Peel, core and slice your apples. Toss the apples with the 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cinammon and put in a baking dish. Try and make sure you have minimal gaps you you don't want that lovely crumble falling through.
Sieve the flour and add the sugar to a bowl with a good pinch of salt. Add the butter before rubbing it between your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Pour the crumb mix over the apples, using a fork to spread the mixture out evenly.
Put in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden.
Serve with your choice of accompaniment.
