Apple Crumble

February 22, 2009

I was really itching to bake something that is not called cupcake, cake, muffin, or has any chocolate in the ingredients. Then my sister suggested APPLE CRUMBLE. So here goes!

I got the recipe here, but I added cinnamon and chopped the apples to smaller pieces because I wanted to make mini apple crumble. It stems from laziness to scoop out a portion of crumble each time I want to eat it. Now all that’s missing is vanilla ice cream, and it would be just perfect on a lazy rainy Sunday afternoon!

My version:


3 medium Granny Smith apples
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder


75g plain flour
60g caster sugar
60g finely chopped almonds ( I didn’t really weigh it. I just added what I felt was enough)
60g butter, chopped
1 tsp cinnamon powder


1. Cut each apple into 4. Peel and core apple pieces. Chop peeled apples into small cubes (whatever size you deem fit.. I prefer mine small because they are easier to eat.. Sort of those apples in McDonalds apple pie)

2. Place apple, water, sugar and cinnamon in a large SAUCEPAN (those you use to fry an egg, the bigger version). Stir, cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat so that mixture is rapidly simmering. Let it simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes or until apples are just soft.

3.In the meantime, prepare the crumble topping. Mix all crumble ingredients and use a fork to mix them together until well combined. The mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. If you prefer your crumble to be larger in size, use your fingers and mix.

4. Spoon cooked apple (without the liquid) into shallow ovenproof dish (or mini aluminum trays).

5. Spoon some liquid into dish/trays so that apples are moist, not wet.

6. Sprinkle crumble topping over apple.

7. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Serve hot or warm.

Makes 12 mini aluminum trays of apple crumble.

NOTE: You can use red apples, but I prefer using green ones because:

1)The tartness of green apples balance the sweetness of the crumble

2)They do not oxidise quickly (less browning = more aesthetic appeal)

3)They are crispier.

Yummy goodness
