Apple and Orange Crumble

The beauty of crumbles is that they are very easy to make, and good-tempered enough to have their cooking time and temperature adjusted a little to fit in with the rest of the menu. The only thing to make sure of is that the top is nicely golden, but not too brown. The recipe here uses apple and orange but any type of fruit can be used.

ingredients

serves 4 - 6
700 g (1 1/2 lb) cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
grated rind and juice of 1 orange
25 g (1 oz) light soft brown sugar
100 g (4 oz) plain flour
50 g (2 oz) plain wholemeal flour
75 g (3 oz) butter
40 g (1 1/2 oz) icing sugar, sieved
1.25 ml (1/4 tsp) ground cinnamon

method

1. Put the apples, orange rind and juice and sugar into a 1.4 litre (2 1/2 pint) ovenproof serving dish.

2. Put the flours into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the icing sugar and cinnamon, making sure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

3. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the apple. Bake at 200°C (400°F) mark 6 for 30-40 minutes, until the topping is crisp and golden. Serve hot with fresh cream or custard.

I make crumbles quite a lot and this one is a particularly lovely combination. And not a spotted long neck in sight!
Ah, British-ness is in the air!
