Family Meals for Much Less than a Fiver (5) - Apple Crumble


Delicious puddings can be home made for much less money than shop bought plus a home made apple crumble will have lots more fruit in it. Use British Bramley apples, ideally from your local greengrocer. Serves 4-6. Cost effective, this recipe for a large pudding costs around £2

You will need:-
For the Topping:
225g Flour
100g Butter, soft and cubed
75g Sugar
For the Filling:
800g Bramley apples ( 3 large apples)
75g Sugar
A little water
1 tsp cinnamon
NB. You can adjust the sugar according to how sweet you like the pudding.
1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Rub  the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar. Set aside.
2. Peel the apples with a peeler. If you have a corer it is useful to take the core out too. Chop the apple into bite size chunks. Place in a large oven proof bowl. Once you have cut the apples work quickly to cover them with the crumble as they soon start to go brown. 
3. Add a little water, just enough to cover the bottom of the bowl. Add the sugar over the apple. Sprinkle on the cinnamon, ensuring an even spread over the apple. Give it all a good stir.
4. Cover the apples with the crumble mixture, ensuring there is no apple showing.
5. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees centigrade for about 45 minutes. The crumble should be light brown and the apple will be soft.
6. Serve with cream, ice cream, custard or evaporated milk. Enjoy!
