This apple crumble was a bit dry, I kind of freestyle the ingredients but I think it needed a little more butter to make the crumble not so dry but aside from that it’s okay. I’ve use coconut sugar which looks like soft brown sugar and gives this crumble the dark colour. This crumble is not sweet so would go down a treat with lovely warm custard or vanilla ice cream.
Optional: 1 tbsp lemon juice
50g coconut sugar
120g plain flour
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and set aside an oven tray.
Wash, peal and finely slice the apples, layer in the bottom of the oven dish sprinkling with cinnamon powder. Add a small splash of lemon juice to stop the apples browning.
Next, make the crumble my mixing the butter, sugar, flour and oats together until it resembles bread crumbs.
Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apples and press down slightly.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until golden brown, leaving to cool down before eating.
So I made an apple crumble one Sunday morning and I realised I’ve never shared a recipe on my blog. I don’t make crumbles that often however, I’ve made quite a few apple based dishes in the past. This recipe was perfect for me and my family, not too much apple and a golden crumble topping with the addition of oats for extra crunch. Apple crumble is a great autumn dessert because it’s so warming and apples are in season. Not only that, it’s super versatile and can be eaten alone, with custard, ice cream or clotted cream. Why not make this for your dessert today!

Wash and peel the apples, slice thinly and put into the over dish, sprinkling over the cinnamon.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats and sugar together then rub in the butter using your fingers until it resembles large breadcrumbs.
