Apple crumble

There are a million recipes for crumble, but I just wanted to find a simple combination that worked. Here’s what I came up with, as my crumble. Amounts can be changed to suit however many people.

Peel the apples, and slice or cut into chunks. I did both for some variety of texture. Mix them with sugar, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, and pour them into a buttered oven dish.

For the topping, equal weights of butter, flour, and brown sugar, plus a couple of handfuls of oats.

Rub the butter into the flour like you’re making a pie crust. Mix in the sugar, and the oats, and pour it all over the top of the apples. Bake at 190c for 30-40 min.

The apples cook and form a nice syrupy sauce that gets all bubbly as you cook it, and the crumble comes out perfectly lovely and crumbly.

So easy to do, and totally satisfying.
