Apple Crumble

Don’t forget to bring a towel! (For those who salivate a lot)

The Ingredients
Apples…..lots of apples (Not really. It depends on the size of your dish)
1/3 Cup of Rolled oats
1/3 Cup of Castor Sugar
1/3 Cup + 1 heaped tablespoon of Plain Flour
65g softened butter (I use regular, salted butter)
1/8 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
Some Apple Sauce (The amount depends on your dish. My Apple Sauce is here )
The dish I used was an 8x8x2.5 inch non-stick baking pan.

The Method
1. Preheat your oven to 180C.
2. Peel and core your apples. If you have an apple spiralizer, use that. If not, try playing fruit ninja. As long as you end up with 4-5mm thick slices of apples, it doesn’t really matter how you do this.
3. Line the bottom of a non stick pan in slices of apple.
4. Get a couple of ladle’s of your apple sauce and cover the layer of apples.
5. Cover the sauce in another layer of apples and then another layer of sauce.
6. Mix your flour, oats, sugar and butter together by hand. It won’t take long.
7. Once it resembles the stuff in the above photo, it’s ready to be sprinkled over your apple base.
8. Bake for 25 minutes on 180C and then put on the griller function in your oven and this will crisp up the topping so it gives you a beautiful crunch. Once the topping is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 5 minutes. This just allows the edges to cool and set a little so it’s easier for you to remove in 1 piece.
9. Cut up to the desired size (or just grab a spoon and indulge yourself) and serve with either thickened cream, or some vanilla ice cream.
