Mum and I made a apple crumble last night, I'm going to find a few recipes for other things and probably freeze stewed apples this weekend.
First off, I peeled the apples and mum chopped them -
Then I stewed them with sugar, cinnamon and cloves with a little bit of water (excuse the state of the hob...)
Here's the exceptionally simple recipe -
For the filling -
25g brown soft sugar (I used dark but my recipe says light >.<)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
For the crumble -
110g almonds, chopped
75g salted butter
175g self raising flour
1 dessertspoon cinnamon
110g demerara sugar
Simmer the apples in a little water for 20 minutes or so, until they are all mushy. Stir in the cinnamon, cloves and sugar and simmer for another 5 minutes.
For the crumble, rub the flour and butter together until it resembles crumbs. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and almonds.
Place the apple mixture into an oven proof dish, put the crumble mix over the top and bake for 30-40 minutes at 200ºc, until golden on top. Leave to stand for 10 minutes then serve with custard or cream or ice cream - whatever you want!
