Howdy everybody, hope you’re all doing well and enjoyed the bank holiday.
We originally had plans for last weekend but unfortunately, we were struck down with a bug, so we shut ourselves away in our home and caught up with tv from Saturday night! It was lovely just resting, with no stress and watching Britains Got Talent, I cannot wait to watch Kojo Anim and Rob King tonight!
Anyway, I’m digressing, on with the show, this weeks post is about my Momma’s Apple Crumble, I loved watching her make it as I was growing up ☺ and then eventually teaching me how to make myself to pass on to my future children.
Momma’s Apple Crumble
- 575g Cooking Apples (3 Medium Sized)
- 1tbsp Granulated Sugar
- 300g/10½oz plain flour sieved
- pinch of salt
- 175g/6oz brown sugar
- 200g/7oz unsalted butter at room temperature, cubed, plus a little for greasing
- Or you can use a packet mixture (I preferably use this method when I’m not feeling my best or for quickness)
- Preheat oven at Gas Mark 5/190°C/170 Fan.
- Place the flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, or if using packet mixture, follow the instructions from the back of the packet.
- Peel, core and slice the cooking apples about 1cm thick.
- place cooking apples into a saucepan. Cover the bottom of the pan with water, sprinkle the sugar over the apples to sweeten them up.
- Place the saucepan over the hob until the apples are soft, keep stirring so not to have any mishaps.
- Place apples into a pyrex dish or a 23cm baking dish at least 5cm deep, or a 20cm square dish.
- Flatten the apples down, so that it is levelled out. Add crumble mix, level it all over. Place in the middle of the oven to cook for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
- Take out of the oven and either leave to the side to cool down or serve immediately.
* I preferably like to have mine with ice cream but it also works great with custard too!
