Recipe – Easy Apple Crumble

After our roast the other night I was really craving a nice dessert, which we don’t have in the house.  Usually I would make up a couple of individual apple or apricot pies (in my handy pie maker) but I wanted something different.  So I decided to make apple crumble, which I haven’t done since before the boys were born but is super easy!

Ingredients –

* Apples (I used tinned ones that I get in bulk but you can use fresh and cook them up) – the quantity will vary based on the size of your dish

* 1 cup plain flour

* 1 cup brown sugar

* 100g butter


Directions –

* Place apples into a baking dish

* Put flour, sugar and butter into a bowl

* Using your hands rub the butter into the flour and sugar until you have something that resembles crumble

* Spread over the top of your apples

* Bake in a 180 degree oven for 20 mins

* Serve with ice cream


Notes –

* Substitute apples with apricots – yummy!

* Sprinkle some cinnamon into your butter mix, or just sprinkle on top of the dish before baking

* Add some berries in with the apples during summer for a delicious alternative – try blueberries or raspberries.

* Add 100g of oats in with the butter mix to give an extra crunch.
