Apple crumble

Origin: Uncertain (Internet)


  • 600g cooking apples, peeled and sliced
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 50ml water (not always necessary)
  • Grated rind of 1 lemon (if using ginger)
  • Butter for greasing
  • 75g butter
  • 150g plain flour
  • 75g caster sugar (brown sugar gives a better texture)
  • Ground ginger or cinnamon sticks

Temperature: 180 deg C or Gas Mark 4 for 30-40 mins (maybe that's too long).

Notes: The temperature is probably too high. Gas Mark 3 (or maybe even 2/3) for 25 to 30 minutes is probably better. It probably depends on the oven. Also, might be better to put the crumble at the bottom/middle of the oven rather than near the top, to stop it getting burnt on the top.
