Annie’s Apple Crumble

Our neighbours had given us a huge tray of apples… to be honest I didn’t expect it to come this early, I thought apples are more an autumn fruit!

Anyway I turn to my trusted crumble recipe originated from BBCgoodfood website. I’ve made a few changes myself and here’s my adopted version.

    Stewed apple
  • Make the crumble topping by whizzing butter and flour together in a food processor, or rub butter in with your fingertips, until it resembles a sandy texture.
    Crumble topping
  • Mix brown sugar and chopped nuts (if using) into butter and flour mixture. Spread it over the stewed apple.
    Assemble crumble

    Crumble done


When stewing apples, you don’t want the apples to be totally mushy as they carry on cooking in the oven. 

The kids love this and will happily eat 2 bowls drowned with double cream in one setting… let me know how you like yours and what adaptation have you done to yours!

I’m planning to post some more harvest related recipes with courgettes, tomatoes and more apples recipes, so please keep your eyes peeled for those!
