Apple Crumble


Bye Bye 2020!

What a year it has been! A year full of bitter sweet memories...... It is not like the switch is going to turn off tomorrow on January 1, 2021, and world is going to reset to normal mode but the success of Covid 19 vaccine is definitely a ray of hope that world will be safer place once again very soon. That definitely calls for celebration! Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year 2021!

Sharing with you all a recipe for Apple Crumble. This is one of my most favorite dessert dish. It is also easy to make. Believe me, the hardest part in the whole process is to wait till it is baked! Home starts smelling divine once the Apple Crumble is in the oven making the wait for those 50 minutes seem like eternity. 

This time it was even harder as I had to click some pictures before we all could dig in to it! The aroma of apple, cinnamon and nutmeg will linger longer in your home than the Apple Crumble itself. In my home, Apple Crumble is all gone within 20 minutes but the aroma lingers for hours!

You can serve it hot or cold as per your choice. You can eat it by itself or serve it topped with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream. I personally like it warm served with Vanilla Ice cream on top! Super delicious! Do give a try and let me know if you like it.

For Apple layer-

Apples- 4 (I prefer Granny Smith but you can use any variety)

Brown sugar- 4 tablespoon

Lemon juice- 1 tablespoon

All purpose flour- 1 tablespoon

Cinnamon powder- 1 teaspoon

Nutmeg- 1/2 teaspoon

For the Crumbly topping-

All purpose flour- 1 and 1/4 cup

Brown sugar- 1/2 cup

Cinnamon powder- 1 teaspoon

Nutmeg powder- 1/4 teaspoon

Salt- 1/4 teaspoon

Baking powder- 1 teaspoon

Walnuts- 1/2 cup, chopped

Butter- 1/3 cup

Milk- 6 tablespoon

Optional topping-

Sugar- 1 tablespoon

Cinnamon powder- 1 teaspoon

  • Peel, core and slice the apples and put them in a big mixing bowl.
  • Add 4 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg powder. Mix it well and keep aside.
  • Start preheating oven at 350 F/ 175 C.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, take 1 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour.
  • Add 1/2 cup brown sugar,  1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder. Mix it well. 
  • Add butter and mix it with the flour using your hand to make sure it is properly incorporated. The flour will now have crumbly texture.
  • Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and mix well.
  • Add milk, 2 tablespoon at a time and mix to form crumbly mix. Make sure not to make a tight dough. The flour should feel moist and soft.
  • Now put the apple slices in a baking tray. With the help of spatula, make a even layer of apple slices.
  • Top it with the crumbly topping. Make sure all the apples are covered with the topping. spread the topping layer evenly.
  • In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder. Sprinkle it over the topping.
  • Bake it in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes. 
  • Enjoy it by itself or serve it topped with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream.
Note- If you are using very sweet apples, I suggest increasing the quantity of lemon juice accordingly.

I am Sonali and Welcome to Sonali's Homefoods! Thank you for visiting my blog. This is my attempt to digitize my culinary experiments and also seek creative satisfaction. I am not a professional chef or a nutritionist. I enjoy cooking and often find it meditative as it takes my mind of many unnecessary issues. I look forward to sharing with you all, recipes that are tried, tested, tasted and appreciated by my family and friends. Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet. But I am most excited to share with you some recipes that I have developed myself. I look forward to enjoy this delicious journey with you all!
