British Apple Crumbles

Crumbles are simple and hearty baked creations made with sweet or savory ingredients. The sweet varieties usually consist of fruit that is placed on the bottom of the tray and topped with a crumbly mixture of butter, sugar, and flour.

The savory variants employ meat or vegetables and use cheese as a replacement for sugar. Ground or chopped nuts and oats are a very common addition to the crumbly topping, which provides a more complex texture of the crispy cover. 

It is believed that the British crumble originated in the midst of the Second World War when original pie ingredients were hard to come by and were considered a luxury.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

Crumble Topping:

1 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup brown sugar light or dark

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

8 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

 

Filling:

2 1/2 pounds Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, and sliced or diced into bite sized pieces

1/2 cup granulated sugar or brown sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons corn starch or all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON BRITISH APPLE CRUMBLES

Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray an 8 or 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine all purpose flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Whisk to combine.

Add the melted butter and stir with a fork until crumbly.

In a large bowl, combine apples, granulated sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch (or flour if using) and ground cinnamon.

Transfer apple mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.
