Warming Apple Crumble
This apple crumble recipe is an absolute family favourite in our house… and it’s so simple to make! For a handy little time saving tip, you can substitute the stewed apple for tinned pie apple – it works just as well.
Whether you like to serve your apple crumble on it’s own, with a big scoop of ice-cream or a dollop of custard of cream, this is sure to be a winner at your next family dinner.
- 5 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup caster sugar
- 2 tbs lemon juice
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons plain flour
- 115g butter, cut into small chunks
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (reduce to 180 degrees if you’re using fan-forced).
- Grease an oven-proof baking dish with butter and set aside.
- Place the apples (peeled and sliced) into a medium saucepan.
- Add the water, caster sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Simmer on low for 5-10 minutes or until just softened.
- Drain off any excess liquid.
- Place the stewed apples into the prepared baking dish.
- Place the oats, brown sugar, plain flour and butter into a bowl.
- Squeeze and break up the lumps of butter with your fingertips until crumbs have formed and all of the oats and the flour have completely combined with the butter.
- Sprinkle the crumble over the apple and place into the oven.
- Cook until the crumble is golden and crunchy (approximately 35-40 minutes).
