Deconstructed Apple Crumble- The first recipe I have ever created!

Ok, I'm not going to lie. I cook food,  I don't create food. But today I did! I've started to do a lot more experimenting and creating my own recipes.  This is loosely based on a recipe from my friend Kia and the recipe for rhubarb and apple crumble from David Herbet's Complete Perfect Recipes. 

So, I made a deconstructed apple crumble. A  more stylish version of apple crumble that is easier to make. 

So, for this delish Deconstructed Apple Crumble you will need............ 
3 apples
1 cup of Plain (all purpose) flour 
3/4 cup of lightly packed brown sugar 
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 
125 grams of unsalted butter 
A few pinches of extra ginger 
A few pinches of cinnamon 
10 grams of extra butter. 

So you lay out all your ingredients 

Apple, Cinnamon, Butter, Ginger
Doesn't look like much BUT you can make a delicious dessert with it
There it is again!


Start by preheating the oven to 180 ˚C.  To make the crumble topping  in a bowl,  with your finger tips, rub together (crumb) the flour, brown sugar, ginger and butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.  

This stuff is actually delicious at this point.
Chop each apple in half and core it. Put the apple halfs on a tray and top with a little bit of your extra butter as well as a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of ginger. Sprinke with about a teaspoon of crumble over each apple. Sprinkle the rest over the tray.  The amount you sprinkle over the tray (not on the apples) should be most of the crumble topping. 

 Cook in the oven for 20-30 minutes.  

When you take it out you will realise that the crumble you put on top of the apples will have gone mushy. That is why you put most of it on the tray. Put all the crumble on the tray in a bowl and put each apple on a seperate plate. Top with the crumble topping you put on the tray. This topping should be firm not mushy. Enjoy your dessert.    

May I say. They were DELICIOUS. Try to make them! They are yum. And any recipe ideas I can try. Put them in the comments. 

Stay stylishly FABULOUS
