Classic Apple Crumble
Posted on Monday 08 July 2019 by Jojo
- 1.5kg mixed apples
- 150g golden caster sugar
- 1 lemon
- 50g unsalted butter , (cold)
- 100g plain flour
Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.
Peel and core the apples, then quarter and chop into 3cm chunks. Place in a saucepan on a medium heat with 100g of sugar and a few fine gratings of lemon zest.
Pop the lid on and cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples have softened. Remove the heat and leave to cool a little.
Meanwhile, cube the butter and place in a mixing bowl with the flour. Rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs, then scrunch in the remaining sugar to add a little texture.
Transfer the apples to a 25cm x 30cm baking dish and sprinkle over the crumble topping.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or custard if you wish.
