Classic Apple Crumble

Understandably I’ve been feeling rather autumnal lately. What better says autumn like an apple crumble with custard, sat with a blanket on the sofa, with a yankee candle burning in the room? I have been making this crumble lately, thanks to all of my mother-in-law’s abundance of spare apples from the tree…

 

For the crumble
  • 300g/10½oz plain flour, sieved pinch of salt
  • 175g/6oz unrefined brown sugar
  • 200g/7oz unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature
  • Handful of oats, to sprinkle
  • Knob of butter for greasing
For the filling
  • 450g/1lb apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1cm/½in pieces
  • 50g/2oz unrefined brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon

What to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Place the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3. Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.
4. Butter a 9in ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top and then sprinkle on the oats.
5. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.
6. Serve with thick cream or custard.
7. Enjoy!
