3 large cooking apples,sliced
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp demerara sugar
1 tsp bourbon vanilla sugar
approx• 1/4 tsp ground cinammon
150g plain flour
80 g fine oats
150g butter (cold !)
120g demerara sugar
1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan then add the sugar, stirring gently. When the sugar has melted add the sliced apples and the spices. Fry gently, stirring often, till the apples turn a nice caramel colour. Place in a pie dish.
2. Take a large bowl. Cut the butter into cubes and add to the rest of the topping ingredients. Rub the mixture between your fingers till it resembles large breadcrumbs.
3. Top the apples with the crumble mixture and bake in a pre-heated oven (180 celsius) for approx. 30-40 mins (check regularly as oven temperatures can vary)!!
Tip ! Cooking the apples beforehand (with butter and sugar) will give them a soft texture and caramel type taste..if you prefer a firmer filling just add the spices to the raw apples then proceed as directed.
Serve with custard, cream or vanilla ice cream.:)
