Apple Crumble

Delicious and easy this apple crumble fills all the cravings for sweet things without actually being that bad for you. Assuming you don’t load it up with cream  when it’s done. Apple crumble is my mum’s go to recipe when we feel like dessert. We almost always have the ingredients in the cupboard, and it’s a delicious and easy recipe. 

Preheat the oven to 190°C. To make the crumble topping put the flour, cinnamon, mixed spice, butter, and sugar into a food processor. Blend them together until the mixture is combined and looking crumbly. Add the oats and briefly blend to mix them in. This part can also be done by hand. You just mix the dry ingredients together, and rub the butter into the mixture until everything is combined. But it’s faster to do it in the food processor.

You can use fresh or tinned apples for this recipe. We normally use tinned because it’s faster, but it’s super simple either way. If you’re going to use fresh apple, grate four or five apple into a baking dish. You don’t even have to peel them first if you don’t want to. Or if you’re using tinned, just pour them straight into your baking dish. We didn’t have quite enough tinned apple so we did a bit of both.

The crumble is delicious by itself, but we normally serve it with custard, cream, or ice-cream. Leftovers (if there are any) are also great for breakfast the next day with yogurt instead of cream.
