Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

Fruit crumble is a great way to use up fruit that has seen better days. It works nice with any fruit (except, in my opinion, bananas) and you can also mix different types - adding a handful of frozen raspberries or blueberries gives it an extra zing, and plums work really well too. Preparation time is under 10 minutes, and the oven does the rest. Serve with custard, vanilla ice-cream, cream or natural yoghurt.



6 servings
  1. 250 gr flour
  2. 125 gr butter
  3. 1 tsp ground ginger
  4. 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or 1 cinnamon stick)
  5. 1 pinch salt
  6. 100 gr brown sugar (or honey)
  7. 4 apples

  1. Change

    Get the ingredients together

  2. Change

    Grease the oven dish with some butter. Peel the apple and slice. Put the apple slices in the dish. Add the ginger and cinnamon - I put the stick in the middle with a layer of apple underneath and on top. Sprinkle with the juice of the lemon and add a generous spoonful of the sugar

  3. Change

    Put the flower, pinch of salt and butter in a large bowl.

  4. Change

    Wash and dry your hands really well. Then rub the butter into the flower like this, by gathering handfuls of the mixture and rubbing your hands together. The more you rub, the more the butter will be incorporated in to the flower and the end result

  5. Change

    will be a crumb-like mixture.

  6. Change

    Add the rest of the sugar. You can also add oats, seeds, muesli or granola too. Mix well.

  7. Change

    Cover the apples with the crumble mixture and put the oven dish into the oven at 180º for 60 minutes.

  8. Change

    When it is ready the top layer of the crumble will be hard and the apples will be soft and brown, because they will have absorbed the sugar while cooking. Enjoy!!
