Fall is the time for apple picking, which of course means baking apple pie and apple crumble – you can’t just have one surely!
So what’s better than these individual apple crumbles that are so easy to make and perfect for a dinner party, or to accompany a Sunday roast.
Unlike apple pie these individual apple crumbles will not get soggy, even if you make them then pop them into the fridge to eat a day later. What’s more, they’re super cute in these glasses – or if you have mason jars they work just as well.
3 granny smith apples
1 tsp cinnamon
80g plain flour
50g light brown sugar or demarara sugar
Note: these can easily be made vegan by substituting the butter for a dairy alternative.
1. Start to heat a saucepan on a medium heat.
2. Core and cut your apples into good bite size chunks and put them into your saucepan. Add the sugar and cinnamon with a dash of water (not too much) and allow your apples to get soft for around 10 minutes.
3. Next add your flour into a bowl and rub the butter into it with your finger tips so it starts to look like bread crumbs. When it is just starting to look like bread crumbs add the sugar and oats and continue rubbing until you have the desired bread crumb effect. Don’t worry if some parts look chunkier than others.
4. Place your crumble mixture onto a tray and put in the oven for 20 minutes or more – until it looks golden. You may have to stir half way so that all of the crumble can be cooked.
5. When you’ve taken your apples off the hob pour them into another oven proof dish and put them into the oven for a further 10 minutes. Keep checking your apples to make sure they are soft, but not too soft that they act like marshmallows.
6. When you are happy with your apple mixture and your crumble take them out of your oven and leave to cool slightly (around 3-5 minutes).
7. Make sure your glasses or jars are clean. Then spoon in your apple mixture, making sure both glasses/jars have an even amount. Then add your crumble on top making sure you have an even quantity of apple and crumble.
If you’re serving these at a dinner party you can add ribbon or bakers twine for decoration to make it more festive.
