Apple Crumble
Customer recipe by Lucy Pack
Added 66 months ago

Peel the apples. Firstly peel and core the apples, roughly dice them into chunks.

Cook the apples. Put the apple chunks into a pan, add three quarters of the sugar, the cinnamon stick or clove and cover.

Stew the apples. Allow to stew gently for 30 mins, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Keep checking as they can easily burn at the beginning.

Check the apples. Check that the fruit is cooked by mashing it a bit with the wooden spoon. The apples should be soft but not pureed.

Allow to cool. Put the apples into the serving dish and allow to cool.

Make the crumble. Mix the flour, remaining sugar and butter with your fingers in a bowl until it becomes like a breadcrumb consistency.

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

Add the crumble topping. Cover the stewed apples with the crumble topping, without pressing down.

Cook the apple crumble. Bake for approximately 30mins or until the crumble is golden brown and crunchy.

Serve the crumble with cream, custard or ice cream
