This apple crumble recipe will turn those sad forgotten apples into spoon licking deliciousness. I looked at Jamie Oliver’s recipe a couple of times and then I winged it. Because I don’t have a measuring scale and only 2 out of my 3 sad apples could be salvaged, my brain couldn’t handle the maths to portion down his recipe. Below is my guesstimate of what I did.
Servings: 2 (or one very hungry greedy person)
- 3 small sad apples, cut into small cubes (or good apples are fine too)
- 2 pinches of cinnamon powder*
- 1 tablespoon of sugar, to mix with the apple cubes
- 1 tablespoon of sugar, to mix with the crumble mix
- 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons of plain flour (any flour will do I reckon)
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of oats ( I the texture oats add used 3 tbsp)
- Preheat oven at 190°C **
- Mix your chopped apples with the cinnamon powder and sugar, drop this mix into baking dish
- For the crumble mix the flour and oats together
- Use your fingertips to rub in the butter into the flour and oats mix, until it forms a rough crumble
- Add the sugar to the crumble mixed and mix
- Spoon this crumble mixture on top of the apples
- Bake for 20-30 mins, the crumble should look a tad golden. I used the fan option on the oven***
Let me know how you go!
* Jamie’s recipe didn’t call for any spices, but cinnamon and apple is a bomb combination.
** I started with 180°C and then got did get impatient and then cranked up the oven temperature to 200°C, then I worried about burning so after a while I turned it down to 150°C… farrrr out, why didn’t I read Jamie’s recipe more thoroughly?! Jamie says 190°C, which makes sense now.
*** I think it would have been better without the fan, maybe more moist – meh, flavours were delicious regardless.
