Whole Apple Crumbles
Red Gala or Fuji apples are great for this desert.
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
150g butter, chopped
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup traditional rolled oats
cinnamon sugar for dusting, optional
- Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced. Lightly grease a baking dish.
- Combine the flours and cinnamon in a food processor. Add the butter and process in short bursts until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the brown sugar and oats, use fingers to mix until crumble almost comes together.
- Cut 1cm off the top of the apples. Remove the core. Use a teaspoon to scoop out apple to about halfway, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. Place the apples into the baking dish, press crumble mixture (about 1/3 cup per apple) into the well and evenly over the apples.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are just tender and the crumble is golden. Serve warm dusted with cinnamon sugar or cold as a lunch box/after school snack
🍎 Red Delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady®, Jazz™ and Kanzi™ are best for this recipe
Tip It’s a great way to get kids to eat a piece of fruit. Cut into half or wedges and put into a container to take to school.
Storage Tip These are as delicious cold as they are straight from the oven, so make a double batch and keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
