Apple crumble has to be one of my favourite desserts! It is apple season now in New Zealand and what better way then to make some fresh homemade apple crumble. I stew the apples in some water with cinnamon then add a little bit of sugar (as I took these apples from my brothers tree so they were quite sour) then use the leftover apples to have with yoghurt or granola for my breakfast!
Ingredients (serves 6)
For the Base
5-6 apples, cored and sliced
1 tbsp cinnamon
1-1 1/2 cups water
1-2 tbsp coconut sugar
For the Topping
100g butter, softened
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 1/4 cup spelt flour (you can substitute this for any other flour if you prefer)
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees on fan bake. Grease an oval shaped tin with butter.
Place the apples, cinnamon, water and sugar in a pot over medium heat and cook until softened (approx. 10 mins or so).
Pour the apple mixture into the greased tin.
To make the topping, combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands until the consistency of the mixture is like a crumble. Make sure the butter is softened but not melted.
Pour the crumble over the top of the apple mixture, sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is nice and crispy. Serve with a dash of cream, yoghurt or ice cream.
