I made these quite a few months back but have only got round to blogging about it now. A good friend of mine came to stay with me earlier this year and she bought me these cute Le Creuset minis which are absolutely adorable. Thank you again Angie!
I decided to make apple crumble as I had leftover apples from making apple and olive oil cake for my friend's birthday. The same friend also loves apple crumble and could not believe I've never made my own. Yes I don't know how but fortunately I can now say I have made my own crumble and I'm wondering why I've not made it earlier! It's really simple to make and extremely tasty especially with a big scoop of ice cream (or cream or custard but we didn't have any of those).
Another friend was moving house and a few of us helped him move. I cooked dinner and made apple crumble as dessert which was well received after a hard day's labour.
Does anyone have any suggestions for recipes in my mini Le Creuset? (preferably sweet but I could probably manage savoury as well)
For the crumble
150g plain flour
75g brown sugar
100g butter (My friend recommends equal butter to flour but I resisted!)
For the filling
4 bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
50g brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 180C.
- Place the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well.
- Cut the butter into cubes.
- Rub a few cubes of butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
- Repeat until all the butter is used up.
- Place the apples in a large bowl.
- Sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon and mix well.
- Spoon the apples into the dish and sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture is bubbling. (You will need to increase the baking time if you are using a large dish instead of small ramekins like mine)
