Apple crumble with cinnamon
Easy apple crumble with a delicious base and plenty of spicy and fragrant cinnamon for a twist on a classic. Serve with dollops of cream or your favourite flavour ice cream.
- 200g butter
- 125g sugar
- 75g brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 275g self raising flour
- 350g apples (roughly 2 apples)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp milk
- Raisins (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180 fan/gas mark 6.
Grease a baking tin.
Whisk together 125g butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time incorporating fully into the mixture.
Sift in 150g flour in small batches, folding it in as you go.
Place the mixture in a baking tin and set aside.
Next, make the topping.
Core and chop the apples, drizzling a little bit of lemon juice on top to stop them from browning.
Place the apples on top and the batter and, if you're using raisins, mix them in.
Mix 75g butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, milk and 125g self-raising flour together in a bowl.
Keep mixing until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Sprinkle the mixture over the apples, creating an even spread.
Bake in the oven for one hour. To test if it's cooked through, poke a skewer in the middle and if it comes out clean then it's baked.
Serve hot with ice cream or cream.
