Cooking chez CV – Apple Crumble

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
150g Butter
1 Clove or Cinamon Stick


  1. Peel the apple and core them and dice them into chunks
  2. Put them into a pan. Add sugar, clove and cinamon stick and put on the lid.
  3. Stew the apples for approx. 30 mins stirring occasionally.
  4. Check that the apples are cooked and soft by mashing it a little. Apples should be soft but not  a puree.
  5. Put apples into serving dish and allow to cool
  6. 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
  7. Cover the apples with the toping without pressing it down
  8. Put in oven for approximately 30 mins (until crumble is browned)
