Apple Crumble Homemade - Dessert Recipe

How to make an Apple Crumble recipe

Judes kindly sent me vouchers to try out their two new custards. One was Madagascan Vanilla flavoured and the other Belgian chocolate. I thought about what could be nice to try with either custard-flavoured recipe. So the only thing that sprung to mind, which was simple, was baking an apple crumble pie and possibly using brownies for the chocolate custard.

However, I will be showcasing the apple crumble in this blog. I and my Mrs decided to create the apple crumble dessert from scratch. You can have a look at the outcome of our creation below. I have to include having this dessert with the hot custard provided tasted so good.

Here you can follow the method and ingredients that you will need to make this delicious dessert.

7. Finally, top the apples evenly with the crumble mixture and bake until the apples are bubbly and the topping is golden brown for about 45-50 minutes.
8. Rotate the container once halfway through cooking.

Conclusion

Overall, the final product was pleasing as the crumble was worth waiting for as we indulged in it after having dinner. I also, shared it with the rest of the family as we had almost eaten all of it that was left. This did take 45mins to make, as we were following a recipe through YouTube. Then we had to wait for another 45mins for it to bake in the oven.
