I had a baking day, got through maybe slightly less than half of the apples from my tree.
Apple crumble for today
2 x apple crumble for the freezer 9ready for when baby comes home from uni)
House smells amazingly delicious
8 parts flour
6 parts butter
6 parts sugar
Cooking apples - peeled and chopped
Blitz dry ingredients in the food processor on and off for a minute or so until resembling breadcrumbs
Peel and chop cooking apples and put a layer in the bottom of an oven dish.
Sprinkle with sugar and cinnnmon or mixed spice
Sprinkle on a good thick layer of crumble
Cook in a medium hot oven until looking pleasantly brown and just plain yum . 40 minutes
Be sure to fill the oven up!
Those red bits are from a big pan of leftover fruit which I am stewing for another couple of crumbles. Apple, plum and some blueberries.
Weigh eggs - I used 4 small ones (try it - i promise perfect cake each time)
Same weight each of:
Self raising flour
Blitz up together or beat with a wooden sppon if you are feeling energetic
Stir in as many pieces of prepared apple as you fancy
Cook in same oven, same amount of time. Test with a knife but be sure that the knife is in the cake not just in the apple when you are looking for a dry knife.
Beautiful in a rather rustic way!
I did my stroganoff pies in the same oven at the same time too, try to be energy sensible with my ridiculously inefficient oven
