Apple Crumble

This such a simple dish, a great family favoutite. We had Hungarian visitors staying with us last week and this was one of their favourite Irish desserts!

Crumble Topping
  • 75g plain wholemeal flour
  • 75g soft brown (muscovado) sugar
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 25g sliced almonds
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 800g cooking apples
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 75g caster sugar
To make the crumble topping add the flour ,sugar and almonds into a bowl, stir, then work in the butter, using your fingertips, to make a very crumbly mixture.

Quarter the apples, then peel, core and cut into chunks. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the apples, with the sugar, and cook, stirring, over a high heat for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and tender. Transfer to a baking dish

Spoon over the crumble topping and bake at 180˚C for 25 minutes until the topping is golden brown. Serve warm with custard, cream or ice cream.
