How To Make Apple Crumble
- 6 Cooking Apples
- 250 gm (2 cups + 1 tsp) white sugar
- 200 gm (1.5 cups) plain white flour
- 150 gm (5 tbsp) butter
- 1 Clove or Cinnamon Stick
- Cream or Vanilla Ice Cream
- First of all, you need to peel the apples and then core them.
- Now, you need to dice the peeled and cored apples roughly, into chunks.
- Take a pan and put the diced apples in it.
- Add three quarters of the sugar and cinnamon stick (or clove) to the pan and cover it with a lid.
- Let the apples stew for around half an hour, making sure to stir occasionally with a wooden spoon.
- Check whether the apples have been cooked or not, by mashing them a bit with the wooden spoon. The apples should be soft.
- Take the pan off flame and take the apples out in a baking dish. Let them cool down a bit.
- In a bowl, put white flour, remaining sugar and the butter. Using your fingers, mix the ingredients, to form breadcrumb consistency.
- Preheat the oven to 150ºC (300ºF).
- Add the breadcrumb-like mixture on top of the stewed apples, without pressing down.
- Place the baking dish in the oven and bake the apple crumble for around 30 minutes, or until it becomes golden brown and crunchy.
- Serve hot, along with cream or ice cream.
