Who doesn’t love a good apple crumble? I find this is the perfect dessert to make when you are tight for time but you want to serve a delicious, warm treat for guests.
A lot of my recipes are estimates as I believe that you should use your judgment based on your tastes.
1kg green apples
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup sliced almonds (optional)
4 cups desiccated coconut
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tbsp. cinnamon
1 cup almond meal (if you don’t have any you can just add more coconut)
First core and peel all of your apples, add them to saucepan with water about half way up the apples and cook, add the raw sugar and stir, time will be depending on your cooker, I always cook mine to just soft, the reason I like to precook the apples is because I like to be able to pop in my apple crumble when dinner is being served, I don’t have to worry about if the apples will be cooked through and for how long.
While your apples are cooking you can get your crumble together, simply combine the coconut, sugar, almond meal & cinnamon to a bowl and stir until all combined, once your butter is melted pour over and combine all together until your mixture is crumbly and kind of wet, if you need to add more butter or more of the other ingredients do so at your own discretion, its pretty hard to get the crumble wrong, you may want to add less or more sugar depending on your sweet tooth.
Once your apples are cooked line them in the oven tray you choose, I like a 20cm x 20cm square dish but you can use what you would like, just make sure the apples cover the entire bottom of the dish. Then add your crumble to the top spooning the mixture so all the apples are covered, then sprinkle with your slithered almonds and pop in the oven, I recommend for about 15-20 minutes on 180 degrees but if you would like your crumble a bit crunchy then leave it longer, make sure the crumble is slightly brown.
It’s best to eat when hot, especially with a dollop of thickened cream or icecream!
