An apple a day

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.
