Plate Up. Apple Crumble

Ah the humble apple crumble, such a deliciously simple, rustic recipe. I’ll admit, I’m probably more of an apple pie lover, however this is such a great alternative when you don’t want to be fiddling with pastry. Plus it’s more than likely you will have all these ingredients in your pantry already, so why not make it for tonight’s dessert? Serve with a dollop of cream or ice-cream, yum! Serves 4.

What you’ll need:
4 large apples
¼ cup caster sugar
¼ cup water

¼ cup self-raising flour
¼ cup plain flour
½ cup brown sugar
¼ desiccated coconut
¼ rolled oats
100g cold butter, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

What to do:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a baking dish.

Peel, core and slice apples. Cook apples with sugar and water in a large saucepan over low heat, covered for about 10 minutes. Drain, and discard liquid.

Meanwhile, make crumble. Blend or process flours, sugar, coconut, oats, butter and cinnamon until combined.

Spoon apple into dish and sprinkle with crumble. Bake for about 25 minutes.
