In honour of being asked to write an article for a magazine on my parents new pub The Wheel at Welton, I’m celebrating by baking homemade apple crumble. All apples were pulled from trees in the family orchard. They’re so sweet and delicious… cheers mother! I love nothing more than eating delicious comfort food when there’s a chill in the air. This apple crumble recipe was so easy to make and tastes delicious.
Prep time: 15 mins Cooking time: 25 mins Serves 4
The ingredients you will need for your crumble: 3-4 apples, 150g plain flower, 100g granulated sugar and 80g of salted butter. Preheat oven to 190C before you start cooking. First things first, preparation of the apples. Peel and chop apples into 2cm chunks. Place into a saucepan of water while you prepare the crumble mix.
Place 150g flour and the 80g of sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the softened butter and use your hands to mix ingredients together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Be careful not to over mix into stodge.
Once you have completed the crumble, the next step is to drain water from the saucepan and apples. Readd another 2 tbsp of water and 1 tbsp sugar and place on a medium heat on the hob. Cook apples for around 4-5 minutes until they become mushy. While they are still hot, put the apples into an ovenproof dish.
Finally, pour crumble mixture on top and cook for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. In my attempt, I halved the mixture into two ramekin dishes so my boyfriend and I can eat it together with a big bowl of custard.
I love taking inspiration from my newspaper column and Pinterest, so will be posting several more ‘Winter food’ recipes on my blog over the next couple of weeks. What do you think of my Crumble recipe?
