Apple & Cranberry Crumble
Today's task with little mister Pj was baking, or to be more exact - Apple & Cranberry Crumble Baking. Yum!
You will need:
3 Large Bramley Apples
50g Dried Cranberries*
3 tbsp water
1 Cinnemon Stick
125g Demerara Sugar
150g Plain Flour
1 tbsp Ground Nutmeg
75g Softened Butter
* Cranberries can be optional or you could try raisins or other dried fruits :)
This should feed about 6 people.
First you will need to put the oven on to heat @ 180C
1- Peel & dice the apples into 1 to 2cm squares, place in a bowl of water during preparation to keep them from going brown.
2 - Place chopped apples, dried cranberries, Cinnemon stick, 50g of the sugar and water into a pan & put over a medium heat until the apples are soft and mushy (about 10 mins).
3 - Whilst the apple mix is heating time to make the crumble topping! :)
Place the soft butter, nutmeg, flour and another 50g of the sugar into a mixing bowl and use your fingers to crumble the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
4 - Now place the stewed apples into a deep oven proof dish (in the pictures I used several smaller dishes as the lil cuz wanted to share the crumble around the family :>) - don't forget to remover the Cinnemon stick! After the apples sprinkle generously with the crumble topping and the left over 25g of sugar.
5 - Now place in the oven for 30 minutes. :)
