5 Ingredient Apple Crumble


For the Yummy Apple Goodness: 
5 Bramley Cooking Apples
2 Tablespoons of Soft Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon of flour
1 Tablespoon of Water

For Crumble Topping:
2 Cups of Plain Flour
1 and 1/2 Cups of Soft Dark Brown Sugar
6 Tablespoons of Butter (proper butter works better, but this was all we had in the house.)
Pinch of Salt

Custard or ice cream to serve

Start by making your crumble; Sieve your flour, brown sugar and salt into a bowl. Bit by bit begin to crumble in your butter. Be careful to not mush everything together as you will end up with a paste. Using just the pads of your fingers to create little bits. Have patience but work somewhat quickly to prevent the butter from melting. If you find that you need more or less butter than the recipe indicates, don't worry. Each crumble differs. Eyeball it. Once you have a chunky sand texture that somewhat resembles the (poor) photo below, you're done.

Now for the lower half of this magic duo; Peel and dice your apples into roughly 3cm chunks. Add to a separate bowl and mix in your brown sugar and cinnamon (optional). Add a tablespoon of water and mix together until each piece of apple is coated.

Get your dish, grease it with some butter, and as expected, spread the apples evenly at the bottom and top with the crumble.

Bake for 45 minutes in the centre of the oven, but continuously check after the 30 minute mark to prevent the top from over-browning.

Serve with either custard or ice cream and enjoy!
