Apple Crumble

As I mumbled to myself in my previous post about dieting, that was just PURE MUMBLE. I did not exert the diet because I know everyone will be screaming at me “Look At YOU! NO BOOBS NO BUTT …AND YOU WANT TO LOSE MORE???!??”

Alright alright….my fault…maybe I should just do the silent diet..

Wait…did I say diet again…seriously it’s just one of my ‘3 minutes heat’ haha…because I’m up for some dessert again…haha!

The first time I tried Apple Crumble was a take away from a cafĂ© (forgotten the name) early this year …it’s really good and I planned of giving it a try to make it. However, I dropped the plan almost immediately for some reason but my plan is back!!!

And here it is….my first ever homemade Apple Crumble. I googled for the recipe and most of the recipes stated almost same ingredients….however, dumb-baker being adventurous, did not follow any of the recipes and made this apple crumble based on instinct. Call me dumb or whatever, I knew I should have adapted one of the many recipes since it’s my first time…but my little instinct wasn’t too bad la. Baking is all about experimenting…agree???

What I Had was:
  1. 2 green apples (core + cut them and toss them in an amount of lemon juice to keep the apples from discoloring)
  2. 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  3. 1-2 pinch of cinnamon powder
  4. 140g plain flour
  5. 50g rolled oats
  6. 10g castor sugar
  7. 120g melted butter
What I did was:

Preheat the oven at 180DC. Bring the cut and tossed apples into a saucepan. Add in brown sugar and cinnamon powder over the apples. Stir and simmer over low heat until the apple becomes slightly soft. Turn off the heat and transfer the saucy apples into a baking pan ( I used a 6 inch pan). Set aside first.

Combine flour, oats and sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and mix well with a spatula.

Pour the crumbly mixtures over the saucy apples. Bake in the oven to 180DC for 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold….i had mine hot…and it’s yummy…!
