My favourite season is upon us. The summer heat has finally given up and the days (and nights) are bearable once again. Plus, it's apple season. Love, love, love crisp new season Pink Lady apples. Oh and Granny Smith's too.
Speaking of Granny Smith's, I had about 7 huge ones rolling around the bottom of the fruit bowl. They'd started looking a little wrinkly and unappealing.
I put my young master to work, peeling and chopping them up so we could have apple crumble for dessert.
I follow the 2 x 1 x 1 rule when it comes to a crumble top.
2 x flour
1 x butter
1 x sugar
I tried to make it a little less carby (is carby a word?) by only using 140g of flour and then 70g of butter and raw sugar. There was barely enough mixture to cover the top of the apple so I blitzed up 1/2 cup of walnuts and sprinkled those on top.
Honestly, yum! I must remember to add walnuts next time I make it. Oh and cinnamon. I forgot cinnamon.
How do you make your crumble?
Do you add sultanas? Oats?
What's your secret to a good crumble?
