How To Make Apple Crumble (Food: Classic)

Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Oven Temperature: 150° c - 300° f


6 Granny Smith apples
250 g white sugar
200 g plain white flour
120 g butter
1 clove or cinnamon stick
1 wooden spoon
1 pan with lid
1 bowl
1 shallow oven proof serving dish

Step 1: Peel the apples

Firstly, peel and core the apples and roughly dice them into chunks.

Step 2: Cook the apples

Put the apple chunks into a pan, add three quarters of the sugar, the cinnamon stick or clove and cover.

Step 3: Stew the apples

Allow to stew gently for half an hour, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Keep checking as they can easily burn at the beginning.

Step 4: Check the apples

Check that the fruit is cooked by mashing it a bit with the wooden spoon. The apples should be soft but not puréed.

Step 5: Allow to cool

Put the apples into the serving dish and allow to cool.

Step 6: Make the crumble

Mix the white flour, remaining sugar and the butter with your fingers in a bowl until it becomes like a breadcrumb consistency.

Step 7: Preheat the oven

Set the temperature of the oven to 150ºC (300ºF/ gas mark 2).

Step 8: Add the crumble topping

Cover the stewed apples with the crumble topping, without pressing down.

Step 9: Cook the crumble

Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and crunchy.

Step 10: Serve

Spoon a helping of crumble into a dish and serve with cream or ice cream.
