Apple crumble

This is a guest post from Katrina.

It’s winter and time for some comforting sweets that will warm you up in no time. Everyone has probably eaten it at least once. It is a great accompaniment to a roast dinner. Make sure you have some ice cream on hand or hot custard if you like. Have you guessed what I am talking about?

Well I am talking about good old Apple Crumble with a few options and a twist thrown in.

First the crumble topping. I like to use oats to give a bit of crunch. You will need:

1 cup of plain flour

½ cup of oats

½ cup of desiccated coconut

¾ cup of raw sugar

125gm butter

In a large bowl add dry ingredients and blend well. Add softened butter to bowl and rub in with the tips of your fingers.

Find yourself a deep pie dish or shallow casserole dish. Choose from one of these fillings:

  1. 825gm tin of pie Apple, drizzle with iron bark honey and sprinkle with some lemon or lime zest. Top with the crumble topping and scatter a few slivered almonds. Brush with a little melted butter.

  2. 825 gm of pear halves. Drain and quarter spread over base of pie dish. Add a handful of pitted prunes. Drizzle 1-2 Tablespoons of port wine. ( for kids you can add some boiling water to some plum jam). Add a small pinch of cardamon to fruit mixture. Top with crumble topping.

  3. 825 gm tin of peach slices drained. Peel and slice 2 large golden kiwi fruit and arrange over peaches. Spoon over the pulp of 2 passionfruits then top with crumble topping.

Place in a preheated oven set at 200°C or 180°C (fan forced). Cook for 25 to 30 mins or until crispy on too. Serves 8.
