Apple crumble for autumn


At this time of year the tree in my back garden is full of apples, the branches this year are hanging lower than ever before. Now that it is a little colder as we have entered the autumn months, it is the perfect time to use the many apples on that glorious tree to bake something warm and comforting for the evenings. An apple crumble felt right at the weekend and is simple for anyone to bake. If you have any suggestions for other sweet treats that I MUST bake, let me know. 


For the crumble.. 
75 grams oats
75 grams wholemeal flour
50 grams brown sugar
75 grams butter
A handful of flaked almonds
A handful of chopped pecans

For the filling.. 
800 grams cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped into smaller chunks
75 grams sugar
A tablespoon of water
A teaspoon of ground cinnamon or cinnamon stick

Firstly, preheat the oven to 190C then peel and core the apples and cut in to chunks. Put the apples into a pan with the sugar, water and cinnamon. Cook over a low heat for 5 to 10 minutes until softened and then place into an ovenproof dish. Next put the oats, flour, almonds and pecans in a bowl and mix well, cut the butter into small pieces and add to the mixture. Using your fingers rub all the ingredients together until you get an even crumb texture, then add the sugar and honey to the crumb mix. Cover the apples with the crumble and bake in the over for around 20 minutes until the crumble is golden on top and the apples are hot.
