Rustic Apple Crumble

Holiday Season is here! Which means gathering around the table and sharing stories and eating, of course! Warm desserts complete the mealtimes, and there is nothing better than this winter-loving apple crumble! The best part? It is such an easy breezy dessert and makes everyone so so happy! Serve with fresh cream or vanilla ice-cream, whatever floats your boat!

Start with prepping your apples and stewing them, you can make the crumble in the same pan and put it in the oven while you have your main course. I double and triple the recipe for my large family! If you stick to this, this happily serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cooking apples, cored and peeled. Cut into small quarters (refer to picture)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4-5 tbsps sugar (I used brown sugar, but you can stick with white)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • Separately raisins.

This is what the stew should look like: Keep the raisins aside.

For the Crumble:

  • 3 oz. Butter
  • 1 1/2 oz sugar
  • 3 oz plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 oz fine semolina
  • 1 level tsp cinnamon

Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in sugar and flour and baking powder and the semolina and cinnamon.

Press half the crumble mix into a deep baking dish. Top with Apple mix and sprinkle the raisins on top. Top this generously with more crumb mixture.
