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! (:

18 Oct
Was a last minute get together
But it was good nonetheless! (:
We headed back to the thai restaurant for dinner tonight
Girls Only! hehe

So we went to the Thai restaurant at Sixth Ave again

A Night of Desserts – sinful!

30 Jul
I love the spontaniety of my daddy (:
After watching this television program that introduced places to eat around Clementi
He took his car keys and said
“Let’s go have ice cream!”

it’s really been a long time since we just went out for desserts
and I must say we picked the right place!

i love the simplicity of the decorations in the shop.
the lights ; everything
and the ambiance was super nice too. at night.
as the place had a open bar just  beside it.
we had free music! haha

So I did the ordering haha.
cos Im such a dessert girl. (not very good for my waist!)

and this was what we had that night

warm chocolate pudding with Vanilla ice cream and vanilla sauce

SO good i tell you. they used the top notch chocolate
like 66% coca or more.
the richness of the chocolate.
really super awesome. (:
it was warm and gooey on the inside.
together with the cold vanilla ice cream.
 a perfect match.
divine. just divine

On the television program
we were attracted to their home made sorbets
they had a dish that had 7 different flavours of sorbets!
but we decided to choose the trio one.

(from the left) Mango, Lychee and Strawberry

I would recommend the mango and strawberry.
but the lychee did taste a bit artificially flavoured.
so I will go for other flavours!
of course if u had more people.
you should try the 7 scoops one. haha
it would be interesting! hehe

Though we only had desserts
they are also known for their German pork knuckle
which we would be trying soon! hehe
but have to pre order!
cause they only make 10 a day. hehe
So look forward to seeing the post on the pork knuckle, German food fans! (:
