Little Chefs – Apple Crumble


The monsters had a great time making this crumble.
They chose the recipe, and we headed to the shops to get all our ingredients. They seemed to feel more important as they marched around the supermarket with their list in hand, bless their wee aprons.
We hope you enjoy this simple, tasty recipe.

Serves 6

500g eating apples
6 tablespoons of water
Ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon caster sugar

For the crumble
100g plain flour
100g whole meal flour
100g butter
75g light brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 180oc/gas mark 4.

Cut the apples into quarters, peel them and cut out the cores.
Place them in a pie dish.
Add the water to the apples. Sprinkle them with a large pinch of cinnamon and the caster sugar.
Mix together both flours.
Cube the butter and add into flour mix.
Mix the butter and flour together with a blunt knife, stir and cut into flour again, until the butter is fully coated with flour.
Wash your hands and dry them well.
Rub the butter into the flour. Lift the mixture as your rubbing and let it fall into bowl.
When the mixture is of breadcrumb consistency, mix in the soft brown sugar.
Sprinkle the topping over the apple mix and spread out evenly.
Place pie dish on a baking tray in the oven.
Bake for 45 minutes until the top has went a golden brown colour.
Once cooked let the crumble cool for 5 mins and then serve with ice cream or custard.
