Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble... just out of the oven...
My first attempt in baking this version of Apple Crumble was last year... and about the same time too... not happy with end result, I put aside this post in my 'Draft' folder... It took me a year to do my 'Take 2' photoshoot... I know I am  ...S.L.O.W :)

This is one of my many ways to get Mr H Jr to have his fruits.... such a fussy eater when it comes to fruits and vegetables ~ he loves banana, mangoes, kiwi fruits, peaches, grapes and cut up oranges (very fussy....indeed). He does not like apples, pineapples, cherries (more cherries for Miss E and I... Hurrah!!! ) and the list goes on....
But with this 'Apple Crumble' (inspired from Janelle Bloom's cookbook), he would be happy to consume at least 2 halves .... and of course with loads of custards poured on top ...almost flooding... and 'drowning' the apple... I swear I could almost hear the apple cry ~Help! Help!Help!!

Guess who ate this plate of  Apple crumble ??? :)

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 75g of chopped butter (the actual recipe require 125g..)
  • 1/4 coarsely chopped pistachios
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup of brown sugar (the actual recipe requires 1/2 cup of well compacted brown sugar)
  • 6 small granny smith apples
  • vanilla custard or ice-cream to serve
Preheat the oven to 200C.

Mix the plain flour, ground cinnamon and chopped butter... to resemble crumbs... Then add in rolled oats, pistachios and sugar. Mix well using your fingers...

Cut the apples into half and core the apples. Gently placed the crumble mix on top of the apples. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Serve with either vanilla custard or ice-cream.
