Apple crumble is one of my favourite recipes. Such a comfort dish and a crowd pleaser. Here is a little twist by making it toffee apple, however you can always leave out the dates and just make it a regular apple crumble. You can also change the apples for frozen mixed berries or rhubarb to change it up.
Ingredients: (serves 6)
For the apple mix:
-6 apples (preferably use green Granny Smith- I think the produce the best taste)
-70g dates, stones removed and finely chopped
-85g soft brown sugar
-4 tbsp apple juice
-2 heaped tbsp cinnamon
-2 heaped tbsp mixed spice
-2 heaped tbsp ginger powder
-1 tsp vanilla extract
For the crumble:
-85g plain flour
-85g wholemeal flour
-30g soft brown sugar
-30g flaked almonds
1)Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celcius.
2) Prepare the apples. Peel and chop the apples into chunks.
3) Now make the toffee sauce for the apples to go into. Put the dates, brown sugar, apple juice, butter, cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger powder and vanilla into a bowl.
4) Put this into the microwave, on full power for about 1.5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
5) Once mixed together, add the chopped apples to this mixture, and stir.
6) Now make the crumble. Rub the flours and butter together with your fingers until combined.
7) Add the oats, almonds and sugar to this mixture and combine again.
8) Put the apple mix into the baking dish which you are going to serve your crumble in. Top with the crumble mix.
9) Press down the mixture with a fork.
10) Cover with foil, and put the crumble into the oven for 30 minutes.
11) After 30 minutes, take off the foil and cook for another 20 minutes.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
