This is the first time I am going to attempt baking. Adapted this brilliant recipe from The Daily Spud. I was inspired and somehow got a motivation to try my hands on fruit stuff today.
Second motivation came from my friend Mandy who only started cooking recently too. I was shown to her effortless fruit crumble which was so yummy. She claimed that was the only dish she could make from scratch. So yes, I couldn’t wait to start on it right away. I used Granny Smith apples that mum has in the house.
Ingredients (in simpler form)
- 1 1/2 tbsp Demerara sugar
- ~50 g butter
- ~100 g of plain flour
I put everything onto a deep plate, used finger tips to mix butter into the flour to arrive at grainy texture and set aside.
- 4 green apples, cored and cut up in chunks
- 2 tbsp of sugar
- 1 tsp of salt
- 50 ml of water
- 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
- As told in the blog, I dumped everything into a pot, bring the contents to boil.
- When it’s boiled, put the lid on and turn the heat low.
- Simmer the contents for another 10 mins.
- The apples would become kinda spongy and translucent.
- Off the heat and pour it into a round dish.
- Sprinkle the crumbs prepared previously evenly to top off the stewed apples.
- Bake it for 20 mins at 180°C until the crumbs are golden brown.
- I rest the dish for a while and ate it luke warm.
- Pretty nice and easy!
