Being just 2 of us, I find it frustrating that so many recipes serve 6, 8 or even 10. This is especially true with desserts like crumbles. I went hunting for a small recipe for apple crumble, changed it slightly to use healthier wholemeal flour, used 4 small ramekins and viola, mini apple crumbles.
- 2 apples
- 75g plain flour (I used wholemeal flour)
- 45 g butter, cubed
- 45g brown sugar
- 25g porridge oats
- 1tsp cinnamon
- Preheat your oven to 180ºC
- Peel and cut your apples into little bite sized pieces, and put them in a small saucepan with about 2 tbsp of water and maybe a tbsp of sugar. Cook on low heat for about 15-20 mins, to make the apple bits soft.
- While that’s cooking, measure out your flour and butter. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour till it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Add the cinnamon, sugar and oats to the flour and butter mix, and take the apples off the heat.
- Add your apples and the sugary liquid in the bottom of the saucepan to the bottom of the
- Then sprinkle the oat mixture on top. Bake in the oven for about 20mins.
- Let it cool for a few minutes, then serve with cream or vanilla ice cream (or custard like we did)
