Apple Crumble II

Hey everyone 🙂 I just realised that this is my 100th post on this wonderful little blog! I’d just like to thank all the many people that were involved in this first year of cooking, eating, writing and reading. To many more posts and lovely foods 🙂

Love you all xx

This is a slightly different recipe for apple crumble that I tried yesterday. I prefer the crunchy texture of this crumble mixture. Using two types of apples resulted in exactly the right mixture of sweetness & sourness and also a better texture than just using Bramley (too soft) or eating apples (not soft enough)!

For 2 portions:
3 medium Cox apples
1 Bramley apple
50g cool butter
4 tablespoons plain flour
4 tablespoons oat flakes
2 tablespoons brown demerara sugar
1/2 lemon
(optional: cinnamon)
 

Preheat the oven for 180°C.

Peel and core the apples. Cut the Cox in relatively small chunks and the Bramley apple into larger chunks. Place into a casserole dish and mix with 1-2 tablespoons plain flour. Squeeze the juice of half lemon over it (add cinammon) and mix through.

For the crumble mix cold butter, flour, oats and sugar together with the tips of your fingers and crumble over the apple mixture.

Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Enjoy on its own, with vanilla ice cream or custard 🙂
