  Hi Dralion,

Welcome to Diana's Desserts Website and to the Discussion Forum.

Here's a very basic and good recipe for Apple Crumble:

Apple Crumble

This old fashioned Apple Crumble recipe is a tasty and economical dessert. Can be served warm or cold and prepared in less than an hour. Delicious! Light and fluffy, with just a touch of old-time goodness.

Serves 4 to 6

6 golden delicious apples
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons butter

4 teaspoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
1/2 cup rolled oats

Peel and slice apples into greased baking dish. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Dot with two teaspoons of the butter. Blend the remaining four teaspoons of butter into brown sugar. Mix and add flour and rolled oats. Spoon mixture over apples. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake until crust is golden and apples are tender (approximately 35 minutes.)

Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.

Sincerely, Diana

  Hi Dralion,

I would try using the oats if you can for this recipe. They can be old fashioned oats or instant.

If not, I'd suggest this other recipe:

Apple Crumb

8 medium size Golden Delicious apples
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1/2 cup sultanas
juice of 1/2 lemon
250g plain flour
100g self-raising flour
250g demerara sugar
pinch salt
250g softened butter

1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C (350 degrees F). Peel, and core the apples. Mix them with the sugar and sultanas then cover with lemon juice.

2. Line your baking dish (approximate size 20cm x 15cm and about 5cm deep) with the apple mix and set aside while you make the crumble mixture.

3. In a food mixer, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Add 200g of the softened butter and work into the mixture until it is well combined and looks like slightly moistened, coarse breadcrumbs. Now chop the remaining 50g of softened butter and add to the mixture. Pulse until the mixture takes on a more crumbled texture.

4. Cover the apples with this mixture. Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes until the apples are cooked (you will see the juices bubbling at the sides) and the crumble topping is golden.
