A little request.....

Postby Lucky Luke » Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:23 pm

I hope someone here could show me the easiest recipe for the "Apple crumble" ( I hope this is the name)...I discovered it in Tenerife (yes, we had lunch at an English Pub...) and it was delicious!
V6!

Unfortunately I don't know if I could provide you with an exact recipe as you ask 10 people and you'll wind up with 11 different answers as everyone has there own way of doing it. But I can give you some basic information which should hopefully give you enough to work with.

The crumble mix is generally a 2:1:1 mix of flour to butter to sugar, so if you used 100g of flour you would use 50g both butter and sugar, you rub these together until it resembles course bread crumbs. The amount you would need depends on how big a crumble you are making

For the fruit think of an apple pie filling. If was going for a quick version it would be a case of coring the apples cutting into quarters then cutting the quarters into chunks. Stick them in a saucepan with a tablespoon or more of sugar depending on the amount of apples and cook them until they start to soften.

Assembly wise it is a case of putting the softened apples in the dish, sprinkling the crumble mixture on top and then baking. depending on how big a crumble I'd say it would take 25 to 30 minutes maybe longer if it's fairly large your aiming for the top to be golden. I'd cook it at around 160°C but I do use a fan oven so if you may need to make an adjustment depending on what you have access to.

Hopefully this helps although you've got me thinking about apple crumble now so I may have to add that to the list to experiment with

I, and my partner, love crumble. The recipe I use is, for 6 people,

225g/8oz plain flour,
115g/4oz butter,
90g/3oz sugar,
pinch of salt.

450g/1lb fruit,
90g/3oz sugar.

You can use a blender to make the crumble mix, or as Gibbs said do it by hand. This is a great way to get kids involved in cooking as it is hands on and also one of the easiest puddings to make.

Cook up your fruit with some of the sugar , save a bit to sprinkle over the top before cooking as this helps make a nice crunchy top, possibly a squirt of lemon juice if you like your fruit with a bit more bite.

Cook for about half an hour at 200c/400f/gas 6 until golden brown on top. If it starts getting too brown round the edges turn the oven down a bit.

There are lots of ways to vary this like replacing half the flour with oats or chopped/ground nuts, or adding a touch of spice.

Different combinations of fruit work well like apple and blackberry, apple sultana and cinnamon, apple and fig, rhubarb and strawberry. Pretty much any fruit that is in season, though tinned also works well

Thanks!
I'll try to involve my daughter but she prefers orange over apples and she prefers plain bread to any cake...and she don't like chocolate! So my bitter chocolate is safe without hiding it!

But she do and likes muffins, so I don't give up !

In 'Merica we eat Apple Crisp.... which has oats in the topping.. I found a fairly typical recipe here:

The following looks to be fairly simple for an Apple dessert.
