Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

This is a standard English dessert. The crumble adds a lovely sweetness to the tart apples. (From the Head Chef at the British Embassy.)

Ingredients: four 6 cm ramekins

Soft light brown sugar
2 teaspoons
Cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoons
Crumble Topping
Cake flour
50 g
Whole wheat flour
25 g
50 g
Almond flour
50 g
Caster sugar
50 g
Demerara sugar
25 g
Sliced almonds
20 g


1. Cut the apples into eighths, remove the core, peel, and chop into 1 cm thick wedges.
2. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over the apples in Step 1 and place them into the ramekins. Push them in a bit so that they're packed with apples.
3. Combine the dry ingredients and chopped, cold butter in a bowl and rub the ingredients together with your fingertips until you get a panko-like texture.
4. Add the almond flour, caster sugar, broken up demerara sugar, and almond slices to Step 3 and mix.
5. Top Step 2 with the crumble and press down lightly. It will shrink a bit when you bake it, so use a generous amount!
6. Bake the crumbles in an oven at 185°C for 20 minutes.
7. Let them cool a bit. They're ready to eat when the air leaks out and the center sinks.
8. You can store any extra crumble dough in the freezer.
