Apple Crumble

Posted By Kerri

We made an apple and blackberry crumble recently and it came out really well (typically, we didn’t blog it at the time as the pictures weren’t very good). With a surfeit of apples this week, it seemed sensible to make another. We didn’t have any blackberries this time but I cooked the apples in the same way (sauteed in butter, sugar and cinnamon) and piled them into some small dishes. Topped with a crumble mix, they went in to the oven for about an hour but didn’t seem to crunch up. We grilled the tops so they became slightly crunchier but we still didn’t manage to achieve the perfect crunch of the previous crumbles.

A little later on I realised why. I’d forgotten to add sugar to the flour and butter. So that’s two dishes that went a little wrong today. Hopefully tomorrow will be more successful.

    Hi Mrs Ergul,

    I didn’t follow a recipe as such. I used eating apples and cut them into quarters then I sauteed them in butter, sugar and cinammon for about eight minutes (until they start to break down).

    Next I mixed up the crumble topping which was 30g flour, 30g sugar, 20g butter and a handful of chopped almonds. I only needed a small amount, for a large crumble I’d multiply that by four.

    Spoon the apples into the dish, top with crumble topping and then bake for about an hour (or until the top is crunchy).

    Thanks Sara. It’s actually a mini Le Creuset casserole dish 🙂 I think a mug or a teacup would look cool though, so long as it was ovenproof!
