Autumn - simple apple crumble

As soon as it hit September the temperature dropped and it suddenly got very chilly. Autumn has definitely arrived. The last couple of days seem to be clinging on to the last remnants of summer but the autumn fruit are already out.

We have an apple tree growing in our garden. Usually, we don't take advantage of it enough, but this year I am determined to find more recipes that will use the apples that we have on hand.

I went picking apples from some of the lower branches with my nieces and we ended up with the tin of apples above. I decided to use them to make the most delicious, but simple dish; apple crumble!

It is ridiculously easy to make and only has 4 ingredients. And did I mention how delicious it is?

You will need: 150g Plain flour, 100g granulated sugar, 75g butter and about 3/4 cooking apples. That's all!

-1- Peel and core the apples and  then chop them up into cubes. Add them to a pan on medium heat with 2tbsp of water and 50g of the sugar. It will be done when the apples are all mushy. Add them to an ovenproof dish.
-2- Add the flour, butter and remaining sugar to a mixing bowl. rub in the ingredients to make a breadcrumb-like texture. It should look like -3-
-4- Add the topping over the layer of apples. Place in an oven preheated at 180°C/gas mark 4 for 30 minutes.

And then you're done.

It's a recipe that's also easily customisable. Next time I plan to use brown sugar and add bit of cinnamon to the apples. I hope you enjoy!
