DOOYOO LIKE APPLE CRUMBLE?

One of my favourite deserts has to be apple crumble. I can remember the first time I made it in home economics class at school, it was ok then but over the years the recipe has improved and it’s much better.
It takes 15 minutes to prepare and about 30 minutes to cook. So, if you have the time then you can cook this apple crumble.
Ingredients serve 4:
130g plain flour
2 tsp of grated lemon rind (be careful not to put to much otherwise it will be too sour-uneatable!!!)
a pinch of salt
90g of butter
65g of brown sugar
5 cooking apples/normal apples will also do
1 tsp of golden syrup
In a large bowl mix together the flour, lemon rind and salt. Cut 60g of butter into pieces. Rub into the flour mixture with your finger tips. Put mixture in the freezer for 20 minutes
Meanwhile, peel, and chop onions. Melt the remaining butter in a pan. Then add the apples and cook stirring regularly for about 10 minutes.
Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes or until tender. Add the golden syrup. Increase the heat and cook until the apples start to caramelise.
Transfer the apples to a plate and keep warm. Wipe the pan clean. Set pan over a medium heat. Add crumble. Cook for 5 minutes, without stirring until golden. Spoon the apples into four bowls and top with crumble. Then simple serve. You can serve it with custard and it does taste quite nice.
It’s a simple desert to make but one that does take time-(that’s why Mum makes it for me). To stop the apple pieces discolouring, toss them in the juice of ½ a lemon after chopping. Do that to any fruit and it won’t change colour.
If you want you can add 25g of chopped walnuts to the crumble mixture before cooking, but I don’t because I am not that fond of walnuts.
Apples are high in fibre especially soluble fibre which help blood cholesterol. I really like the golden syrup but don’t add to much as too much can spoil the desert
and the same goes for the lemon rind. Don’t be tempted to put to much in because otherwise your desert will be spoiled!
