Apple Crumble


Apple Crumble

Sunday, the day of rest, roasts and apple crumble. We have the rest side of things pretty much covered, we always manage a bit of a lie in and I usually potter around in the garden drinking tea and playing with Sid, as for the roast well that is always a done deal, Myself and Adam like anything roasted providing it is served with a heap of crispy roast potatoes and accompanied by a huge serving of gravy. The apple crumble however has to be just so and I have tried many a recipe in search of the perfect crumble which I can safely say is now in the bag!

Apple Crumble ServingLast Sunday we threw a little pumpkin carving in to the mix, check out my Instagram to see my attempt at a Sid shaped pumpkin (I say attempt, but secretly I was impressed at how accomplished my pumpkin turned out, I have never cooked it but give me a knife and ask me carve it and I can give it a good go).
Despite our annual pumpkin session, I still had time to tie up my pinny and get to work on creating our much loved apple crumble. When it comes to baking I am pretty useless, Adam almost cracked a tooth when I tried to make breadsticks and my attempt at cinnamon rolls proved equally inedible however, apple crumble is literally one of the most disaster proof bakes in existence, I would almost go as far to say that providing you use the right quantities it is virtually impossible to go wrong. So, if you are in the same cant bake wont bake camp as me but you fancy making a scrumptious pud that will leave everyone wanting seconds then follow this recipe. Also, I am pretty excited to be giving a whizzy little recipe widget a go, it should make my recipes nice and easy to read, share and even print out so there is no excuse not to get your bake on!

Ingredients
The Filling
  • 3 Bramley apples Peeled, cored and sliced (into appely shaped slices)
  • 2 tblsp Golden caster sugar
The Crumble
  • 175 g Plain flour
  • 110 g Golden caster sugar
  • 110 g Cold unsalted butter
  • A Pinch Salt
  • 1 tblsp Rolled Oats (Use good quality oats)
  • 1 tblsp Demerara sugar
Instructions
The filling
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C. Once you have peeled, cored and sliced your apples, toss them with the golden caster sugar and place them into a small round baking dish (I use my ceramic quiche dish). Flatten down the apples by hand trying to remove too many gaps in between the apples.
The crumble
  1. Slice your cold butter into fairly small cubes, place into a mixing bowl adding the salt, four and golden caster sugar. Use your fingers to rub the mixture together in between your fingertips, keep doing this until the mixture resembles even moist breadcrumbs with no loose flour or sugar.
  2. Evenly distribute the mixture on top of the apples then use the back of a fork to gently press the mixture to ensure the crumble holds together. To finish, run your fork across the top of the crumble to loosen some of the top layer then evenly sprinkle on the oats and demerara sugar.
Cooking
  1. About 50 minutes before you want to serve, pop the pie into the preheated oven and cook for 35 minutes, after this time use a sharp knife to make sure the apples are soft and check that the top is nice and golden, if not pop back in the oven for a further 5 minutes. The apple mixture gets piping hot so allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
