Crumble Recipes...

Post by Sara » Mon Jul 07, 2003 12:27 am

Tom was asking about crumble! here you go...........


From our very own Delia Smith

Apple and Almond Crumble

1 lb 8 oz (700 g) Bramley apples

8 oz (225 g) Cox's apples

1 oz (25 g) light brown soft sugar

1 level teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 level teaspoon ground cloves


For the crumble:

4 oz (110 g) whole almonds, skin on

3 oz (75 g) chilled butter, cut into small dice

6 oz (175 g) self-raising flour, sifted

2 level teaspoons ground cinnamon

4 oz (110 g) demerara sugar

Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6, 400°F (200°C).



Begin by preparing the apples. I always find the best way to do this is to cut them first in quarters, then pare off the peel with a potato peeler and slice out the cores. Now cut them into thickish slices and toss them in a bowl with the sugar, cinnamon and ground cloves, then place them in the baking dish and put to one side.

Next make the crumble, which couldn't be simpler, as it is all made in a processor. All you do is place the butter, sifted flour, cinnamon and sugar in the processor and give it a whiz till it resembles crumbs. Next add the almonds and process again, not too fast, until they are fairly finely chopped and there are still a few chunky bits. If you don't have a processor, in a large bowl, rub the butter into the sifted flour until it resembles crumbs, then stir in the cinnamon, sugar and almonds, which should be fairly finely chopped by hand. Now simply sprinkle the crumble mixture all over the apples, spreading it right up to the edges of the dish, and, using the flat of your hands, press it down quite firmly all over; the more tightly it is packed together the crisper it will be. Then finish off by lightly running a fork all over the surface.

Now bake the crumble on the centre shelf of the oven for 35-40 minutes, by which time the apples will be soft and the topping golden brown and crisp. Leave it to rest for 10-15 minutes before serving, then serve it warm with custard or pouring cream.

now thats if you want to do it properly!

I just tend to throw it all together! :oops:

For the basic topping I use about

50g/2oz unsalted butter
110g/4oz plain flour
55g/2oz caster sugar

Its just a case of rubbing it all together, throwing it over your choice of fruit and in the oven for around 20-30 minutes at 200o.

The good thing with the basic crumble recipe is you can do anything at all! It will use any fruit, though something like rhubarb or apples are better stewed first. But you can add spices to the crumble such as nutmeg or cinnamon.

Now all you need is some custard 8)
