Who doesn't love a home made apple pie especially during these winter nights. We thought to share our family recipe with you all <3
Recipe Name: Winter Apple Crumble
Makes: 8 - 12 servings based on portion sizes
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 1 hour
Kitchen Must Haves:
Baking Dish (25cm x 30cm)
Sharp Knife to cut apples
Sharp Knife to cut veggies for the Stockpot
1.5 kg mixed apples
150 g golden caster sugar
50 g unsalted butter , (cold)
100 g plain flour
Preheat the oven to 200°C
Peel and core the apples, then quarter and chop into 3cm chunks.
Place in a saucepan on a medium heat with 100g of sugar and a few fine gratings of lemon zest.
Pop the lid on and cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples have softened. Remove the heat and leave to cool a little.
Meanwhile, cube the butter and place in a mixing bowl with the flour. Rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs, then scrunch in the remaining sugar to add a little texture.
Transfer the apples to a baking dish and sprinkle over the crumble topping.
Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbling. Delicious served with vanilla custard.
Ripe pears are fantastic in place of the apples. Simply peel, core and cut into chunks.
If you don’t have a lemon to hand, use orange or lime zest instead.
You could add rolled oats for a lovely golden topping.
Serve with mixed nuts and a dollop of ice-cream for taste <3
