Toffee apple crumble
We don’t usually eat pudding during the week, we just have yoghurt and/or fruit. So at the weekend I really look forward to making a nice pudding to enjoy after the Sunday dinner. My absolute favourite pudding is an apple crumble. Toffee apple crumble to be specific. It’s simple but perfect. The tart fruit and sweet sauce bubble up around the crispy crumble topping as they cook giving it lovely chewy caramelised edges. Whether you serve it with a proper vanilla custard or ice-cream, its a great British classic for a reason.
This is a really quick and easy way to make an apple crumble. There’s no peeling involved and the crumble is mixed together in one bowl. I don;t mind the peel but if you want you can peel the apple first, it just takes longer.
What you need:
2oz brown sugar
a handful of oats
a handful of flaked almonds
juice of a lemon
caramel sauce (see separate post)
What to do:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Cut open the apples, de-core them, cut into chunks and place in an ovendish.
Squeeze over lemon juice to stop them going brown and then spoon over caramel sauce
Put the flour, sugar, oats, almonds and butter into a bowl
Rub together using your fingertips until it looks like crumbs
Sprinkle over the apples
Bake for 30 minutes until golden
Serve with custard (see separate post) or ice-cream.
