A traditional apple crumble with spiced apples, the perfect crunch, a jammy filling and warming tradition in one dish.
Use a coffee grinder or a thermomix to grind up fresh spices. Transfer to a small container. These are wonderful to add to tea with some brown sugar to sweeten (think Chai) or to a brownie mix too!
Preheat your oven to 180C bake
Peel your apples, core them and slice thickly or cut into chunky cubes
Pop into a large bowl with all the other ingredients. Toss with a wooden spoon making sure that all the ingredients are combined.
Tip into a shallow baking dish, approx 20cm x 20cm
Add all of the topping ingredients into the same bowl you used to mix the apples.
Use your fingers to bring all the ingredients together into large clumpy crumbs
Scoop the crumbled topping onto the apple but don't press it down or try to smooth it out.
Cook in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until the top is golden brown and your kitchen is filled with the scent of baked spiced apples.
Serve warm or cold depending on the season. Top with ice cream or homemade custard.
