Online shopping is so handy, especially since I’ve only just got back from a fortnight at home for Easter. But when my Asda shop arrived yesterday all my apples were either bruised or holey and there’s nothing worse than eating a bruised apple. I didn’t want to waste them so I decided to make a crumble. It doesn’t take long to make and tastes great!
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Great when served with ice cream, single cream or custard.
For the filling
- 4 medium apples, peeled and with the core removed. (I used golden delicious but Bramley are best)
- 75g raisins or mixed fruit
- 40g brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- a pinch of nutmeg (if you have it!)
- 1 tsp plain flour
For the crumble
- 175g plain flour, sieved
- 100g soft butter, cut up into small pieces
- 100g brown sugar
- Preheat the oven to 190c (170c fan), Gas Mark 5, 375F
- Cut the apple into small cubes (about 1cm)
- Mix all the filling ingredients together in a medium sized (roughly 9in) pie dish.
- Rub the butter into the flour, until there are no large pieces of butter and the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
- Mix in the sugar.
- Sprinkle ontop of the apple filling until all the apple pieces are covered.
- Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and the filling is soft and bubbling.
