During the winter months and we all love to comfort food right? This is a quick, easy and hearty meal that can satisfy a whole household. For a light dessert in the summer months with ice cream, or a hearty pudding with custard – nothing beats a traditional apple crumble. Here’s how to create quick and easy afters, that will leave you satisfied (and maybe leftovers).

  • I used a Jamie Oliver recipe as a reference point for this crumble, but as you can see, it has been altered to my liking. For those that don’t like sweet apples, Granny Smith apples allow for a sharper crumble for a less sickly taste. 

Ingredients (Serves 5):

For the crumble:

35 g rolled oats
35 g wholemeal flour
20 g caster sugar
35 g margarine or butter

For the filling:

400 g cooking apples, peeled, cored and quartered
50 g sugar, to sweeten
1 tablespoon water
(I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon)

Traditional Apple Crumble Method:

Preheat the oven to 190Β°C/375Β°F/gas 5. Peel and core the Granny Smith apples, quarter and cut in to chunks.

Put the apples into a pan with the sugar, cinnamon and water. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes and place in a small ovenproof dish.

Place the flour and oats in a bowl and mix well. Cut the margarine or butter into small cubes and add this to the oats and flour. Mix with your fingertips until it resembles an even crumb texture. Add the sugar and mix through.
