It’s the end of the Great British Bake Off for this year. So there was no requirement to get dinner ready and be seated in front of the TV by 8 o’ clock tonight. Instead I did a little baking of my own and adapted a recipe from my copy of Joanna Wheatley’s Home Baking book. You may remember her from a couple of series’ ago.
I have a few apples to use so I decided to make individual apple crumbles. As they say an apple a day keeps the withdrawal symptoms away.
To make 2 ramekins you’ll need:
- 1 apple
- 1 tbsp. caster sugar ( I used truvia)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 50g plain flour
- 25g butter
- 2 tbsp. demerera sugar
Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 6. Dice the apple into 1 cm cubes and mix together with the caster sugar and cinnamon. Tip into 2 ramekins. To make the crumble, combine the flour, butter and demerera sugar in a bowl and rub together until you have a crumble texture. Sprinkle over the fruit and bake for 25-30 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and the crumble is golden.
It was so quick and perfect for the autumnal verging on winter weather. Even better with a scoop of ice cream.
