Who doesn’t love a warm apple crumble with custard? I know I do, it’s a real comfort food for me. We are really lucky at the moment as the house we are living in has a huge apple tree in the garden. The boys have been collecting them and asking me to bake with them, so the other day that is exactly what we did.
We picked the apples from the garden and then chose the best ones to make the apple crumble with. The recipe below is for a dairy free apple crumble so that Ava could have some too. You can also make it with normal butter and custard if you prefer.
- For the Crumble
- 35 g rolled oats
- 35 g wholemeal flour
- 20 g caster sugar
- 35 g Vitalite or another butter substitute
- A sprinkle of cinnamon
- For the Filling
- 400 g cooking apples , peeled, cored and quartered
- 50 g sugar , to sweeten
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tsp of cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5. Peel and core the apples, quarter and cut in to chunks.
- Peel and core the apples, then quarter them.
- Put the apples into a pan with the sugar and water. Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes and place in a small ovenproof dish.
- Place the flour, oats and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well. Cut the butter into small cubes and add this to the oats and flour. Mix with your fingertips until it resembles an even crumb texture. Add the sugar and mix through.
- Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apple hot.
- Serve with warm custard. We used Birds Eye powder mixed with Oat Milk. The soya custard is nice if you can have soya.
