Apple Crumble

Today I made an old favourite, apple crumble. Easy, quick and good with ice cream or custard.

3 cooking apples
2oz margarine
4oz plain flour
10z sugar (caster or brown) + 1 tbsp

1) Peel the apples and dice. Stew in a pot with the 1 tbsp of sugar until they're soft but have a little bite.
2) Put in the bottom of a glass dish.
3) Combine flour and margarine in a food processor, and then stir in the sugar.
4) Cover the apples evenly, using fingertips to compact slightly. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top.
5) Bake for about half an hour at 180 C

I used the food processor for speed, but the rubbing in method can be used too. I used demerara sugar, as it's a more caramelised taste, but caster sugar is nice to. This is a great dessert for changing to suit tastes, pear and rasperberry is a good combination.

No pictures unfortunately, we ate it too fast!
