Apple Crumble

15 Aug

Made apple crumble for the first time today. and I am really happy with how it turned out! (:
I have always been buying apple crumble from thie yoghurt stall in QV
but the price for the amount I get is actually quite little! so i decided to go look for a good recipe.
It’s not the same as the other crumbles you might have tried.
This one has rolled oats in it. so there is a bit more bite to it than usual.
and we absolutely loved it!

the crumble is nice and dry.
not soggy at all! (: hehe so I really really like it!
beinga crumble fan and all.

so here is the recipe! (:
hope you all will enjoy it too!

(Adapted from Jamie Oliver’s Website)

Ingredients :

For the crumble:
35g rolled oats
35g wholemeal flour (I used 55g cause my crumble felt a bit too wet)
20g caster sugar (I used brown sugar)
  35g margarine or butter

For the filling:

  400g cooking apples, peeled, cored and quartered (I used Granny Smith apples)
  50g sugar, to sweeten (I used brown sugar)
  1 tablespoon water

Steps : 

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5.
Peel and core the apples, quarter and cut in to chunks.

2. Put the apples in to a pan with the sugar and water.
Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes and place in a small oven proof dish.

3. Place the flour and oats in a bowl and mix well.
Cut the margarine or butter in to small cubes and add this to the oats and flour.
Mix with your fingertips until it resembles an even crumb texture. Add the sugar and mix through.

4. Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apple hot.


 

Can’t get enough! (:

    Looks good and sound easy enough… Just a few questions though…
    1) I don’t eat oats, so do I replace it with more flour?
    2) What are COOKING apples??? LOL! Same as NORMAL apples?

      hehe it’s easy! u should give it a try! (: yes. replacing it with flour would be okay. Most crumbles are just flour and butter anyways. just that we like oats. so I found one that included it.
      as for cooking apples. haha I used green Granny Smith apples. (:
      Let me know how it goes!
