Apple Crumble

I was invited to a friends BBQ last Saturday, instead of an Oreo Cake, I decided to make Apple Crumble


We need 2 teaspoon of all spice

3 tablespoon of cinnamon


6 Granny Smith Apples



1/4 cup of butter




3/4 cup of oats






3/4 cups of brown sugar





1 and 1/2 cup of flour
Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius. Mix the butter, flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon and all spice in a bowl until they resemble bread crumbs. Add in a pinch of salt if you choose to. Peel and core the apples and lay or just throw them in a buttered baking dish. Scattered the bread crumbs on the apples. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until the apples are soft.


Voila, its done. This is a healthy dish because we used brown sugar instead of granulated white sugar. It has the goodness of oats, cinnamon and all spice. You can experiment on how sweet you want the dessert to be or how much butter or margarine you would like to use. You can use other fruits instead of apples but the fruits need to be tart/sour. If the fruits are not tart then you may need to add some lemon juice and lemon zest to the fruit mixed. A fruit dessert needs to be a little tart or it will be sickly sweet.
