Apple Crumble… yummm… We tried our hands at making Apple Crumble last weekend after having been told by my sister that it was easy to make. At first I didn’t believe her but now that we’ve tried it… it’s actually pretty simple. Of course hers still taste better especially for the dough part as ours was a little too “hard”. Too much butter and not enough flour we were told but then again… who could have blamed us especially since we did not have a food weighing scale to work with. We have to estimate the quantity & weights based on self made markings on the side of the sugar & flour packets. Oh ya… the oven now officially has been tested and it works!
For those of you who would like to try a hand at it, here are the instructions which we followed:
6-8 Green Apples
250 white sugar
200g white flour
1 Clove or Cinamon Stick
- Peel the apple and core them and dice them into chunks
- Put them into a pan. Add sugar, clove and cinamon stick and put on the lid.
- Stew the apples for approx. 30 mins stirring occasionally.
- Check that the apples are cooked and soft by mashing it a little. Apples should be soft but not a puree.
- Put apples into serving dish and allow to cool
- Make the crumble toping. Slice up the 150g of Butter. Mix the white flour, remaining sugar and butter into a bowl. Mix with hand until it becomes breadcrumb consistency. Preheat oven to 150 C / 300 F / Gas Mark 2
- Cover the apples with the toping without pressing it down
- Put in oven for approximately 30 mins (until crumble is browned)
