Having a nice cosy weekend in, the boyfriend and I were cooking dinner for my parents and we wanted to make a nice yummy pud. What better dessert to make for a family dinner than a nice apple crumble? It’s really simple and easy. It’s one of those things that tastes amazing but you forget how much you love it when you’ve not had it for a while, then one spoonful reminds you of it’s homely comforts.
8 cooking apples
2 tbsp caster sugar (approximately)
125g plain flour
95g soft brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100g butter, diced into cubes
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Peel and core the apples.
3. Place apples in a saucepan with about an inch of water at the bottom.
4. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the apples have softened.
5. Mix the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.
