Apple Crumble, A Big One!

Published Tuesday, 15 September, 2009 by Chris

A full fledged 4 person apple crumble!



  • Crumble
  • - 300g plain flour (sieved with a pinch of salt)
  • - 175g brown sugar(unrefined)
  • - 200g unsalted butter(cubed and soft)
  • Filling
  • - (about)450g apples (about 4 small eating apples) peeled, cored and sliced
  • - 50g brown sugar(unrefined)
  • - 1 tbsp plain flour
  • - 1 pinch ground cinnamon/nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 180C

2. Place flour and sugarinto a large bowl and mix well. Taking only a few cubes of butter at a time rub it into the mixture(with your fingertips). Keep adding butter and rubbing till all the butter is used and the crap around your fingers vaguely resembles bread crumbs.

3. Place your chopped fruit in a bowl with the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well coating the fruit and not breaking it!

4. Spoon your stickky mixture of fruit and sugar into a small dish and sprinkle your crumble on top.

5. Compact the crumble with your hand then run a fork over it to break up the surface.

6. cook for 40 - 45 minutes

7. Serve with a massive dollop of thick cream, custard or a healthy spoonful of ice cream!

    I think you got your butter measurements utterly wrong, as when we tried to follow it we got cookie dough rather than breadcrumb-like 'crap'. Did you mean to put 20g instead of 200g?
