Apple crumble

Now admittedly we did make this recipe earlier in the week… however… it was eaten loooong before I had the chance to photograph it…. so we had to try again tonight (what a crying shame :P)

before shot: 1 family sized apple crumble as modelled by MrC

I got this recipe from a site called The 1940’s Experiment (click HERE for original recipe)
8 apples (2 per person)

  1. 8 apples (I used an Aldi pack of 6 green apples)
  2. 2 tablespoons brown sugar (original recipe calls for 4tbs but we found this a wee bit sweet for us)
  3. 2 oz margarine/butter
  4. 4 oz wholewheat flour (we used plain white flour and it came out beautifully, although wholewheat would be healthier and more filling)
  5. 4 tablespoons of white sugar
  6. small pinch of salt

Peel and chop apples into thin slices (i cut mine into home made chip shapes)
Place in saucepan, sprinkle a little water over, brown sugar (and cinnamon if desired… i cant stand the smell so i didnt)
Simmer gently for 5 minutes
Drain a little and place in greased cooking dish
Mix together flour, salt and white sugar
Add in the fat in small pieces and rub together with fingertips until a breadcrumb look is achieved
Sprinkle over the softened apples
Place in over at 220 c (gas mark 7) for about 30 minutes

This recipe was so easy and simple to make…. its definately going to be used (and gobbled up) again
