We’ve been embracing all things winter around here … putting lamps on and lighting candles at 5pm … making and enjoying mulled wine … and cooking up hearty food.
Come the weekend, we’re also just as likely to embrace a winter dessert if we’re staying in. On this particular occasion, the fruit bowl was offering up an excess of apples.
I say, when life hands you an excess of apples, you make apple crumble. Yes? Or in this case, delegate crumble making to Mr SY.
This is a recipe for a non-fancy-schmancy, take-me-as-I-am apple crumble. You may like to get all fancy by adding in blueberries or rhubarb. I’m not adverse to that at all.
And you might not have cause to go gluten-free, in which case … as you were with regular ol’ flour.
Another reader suggestion when I popped this up on Instagram was to use a muesli as the crumble. I like this thinking and I think I could work my fave Brookfarm gluten-free porrij into it quite nicely.
We make this using our Thermomix, for speed and one-bowl washing-up minimalisation but I’ve included instructions for making it without.
Do you like a crumble? What’s your fave winter dessert?
