Crumbly Appley Goodness


Every so often I get the craving for some kind of apple dessert...be it apple pie, apple tart or apple crumble...I suppose the appeal to me is the sweet softness of the apple once it has been cooked paired with a rich buttery pastry...

This is a very simple recipe for apple crumble with a slight variation. The crumble usually calls for flour, butter, and brown sugar...but I wanted to make it a little different with some ground nuts and muesli...I love using a mixture of hazelnut and almonds but you can do this with any nut of your choice!

Apple Crumble (Makes 4 small individual servings)

4 Apples peeled cored and diced

As for the crumble it really depends on how much you like...I don't really measure as I just mix it around till I get the desired size and consistency of the crumble...I mix together softened butter, flour, brown sugar, ground nuts, muesli and a pinch of salt...I use my fingers to mix it up to get a crumbly texture.

Toss the apples in some brown sugar and flour with a sprinkle of cinnamon and put in a baking dish. Top with the crumble mixture and bake at 180C (350F) for 30-40mins. If the top starts browing before the apple cooks place a piece of foil over it to slow the browning down...as you can see from my crumble it browned a little too fast but thankfully I was able to salvage it!

Once it's done add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and you're good to go!
