Apple Crumble Recipe

Here is the recipe for the apple crumble I had made a while back - here

I referred to a few magazines and websites to check out the basic apple crumble recipe and then used this following derived version. It is super easy and very quick. Something that I am going to be making a lot!! 


For the apple filling

- 4 Granny Smith apples (the green ones) You could use any other slightly tangy apples.

- 50 gm granulated sugar - I used soft brown sugar

- 1 lemon juiced - fresh yellow lemons work best
- 20 gm plain flour - For a healthier option use wholemeal flour/unbleached flour
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

For the crumble crust

- 120 gm walnuts/pecans 
- 140 gm plain flour
- 100 gm rolled oats 

- 110 gm dark brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
- 115 gm cold butter, cut into small pieces


1) Preheat oven to 180C/400F.
2) Peel, core, and slice apples into small (1/2 inch), almost same sized pieces or slices. 

Place apples in a large mixing bowl and mix with sugar, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon. Put this mixture into a lightly greased 23 by 33 cm (9 inch by 12 inch) baking dish, and spread out into an even layer. Keep it aside.
3) In another bowl, mix together the nuts, flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and salt for the topping. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, gently work in the cold butter until pea-sized lumps are formed.
4) Top apples evenly with mixture and bake until apples are bubbly and topping is golden brown, about 45 mins, rotating once halfway through cooking.

You can eat it by itself or with fresh whipped cream or ice cream! 

The otherwise non-sweet-eating hubby also loved it and had 2 servings (really big deal that is). I was super happy, because I had the rest of it over the next few days. This keeps well in the fridge too, warm it in the microwave, put a dollop of ice cream and you are in bliss! 
Happy Baking!!
