Apple Crumble

Personally, I think this is a great picture. I also think that daylight is the best time for a crappy phone camera to do the best that it is destined to do.

Winters are almost here. This means we are going to get sick with the unending supply of apples and carrots! I can think of at least two dozen things I am going to try. Yum.

I made this apple crisp yesterday evening as an after dinner dessert but you can have it for breakfast too, like I am doing right now!

Don't get fooled by the picture, it really is apple crisp served in a traditional Indian style mug, called a kulhar.

The recipe is adapted from my favorite baking blog, Joy The Baker.

What you need:

3 medium sized apples
1 tbsp regular sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon powder

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup Quaker oats or any other quick cooking oats
1/2 cup cold butter

Slice the apples and place them in layers on a flat baking dish. Mix the sugar and cinnamon powder and sprinkle on each layer.

In a mixing bowl, combine all purpose flour, brown sugar, oats, and butter. Mix with your hands till the mixture resembles a crumble. If you use too much butter, the mixture will look like cookie dough, which is fine.

Throw this mixture on top of the apples and bake at 180C in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or till the crumble hardens. You can also cook this in a microwave at a HI setting for 10 minutes.

Serve warm, preferably with vanilla ice cream.
