bloody apple crumble

I find apple crumble is a quick-fix dessert especially when the nights are long and you’re longing for comfort food! Brownies and crumbles are two hot desserts in my home and I’ve grown quite a knack for making it after dinner. Well not every day lah! Nanti semua kena diabetes pulak kan? πŸ™‚
My daughter grant the crumble its nickname because it does look pretty bloody, right?

tempting huh? now let's begin!


Whoops, baby wasn’t supposed to be included. We don’t eat babies at my house – that was definitely an error, ladies and gentlemen! (But baby remains as sous chef!)

the ACTUAL ingredients! he he

(for the crumble)
2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
5 tablespoon of oats
2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
120g of butter (cold)

(for the filling)
2-3 granny smith apples (peeled, cut and diced)
1 cup of canned cherries
1 tablespoon of apple cider
4 tablespoon of brown sugar
2 teaspoon of cinnamon


yes, that's the Head Chef!

Preheat the oven at 180 C for 15 mins.
1. Prepare the filling ; cut, peel and dice the apples.

2. Drain and mix with brown sugar, apple cider and cinnamon.
3. Cook under low heat for 5 mins until it looks caramelised with the sugar and cider.
While the apples are being cooked, we can continue with the crumble.
4. Pour flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg plus salt in a large bowl.
5. Mix it well (if you want to you can sieve it). Cut the butter into cubes and add into the batter.
6. Using your fingers, pinch the flour mix with butter into a nice crumbly texture.

7. Grease your baking pan with butter.
8. Pour in the cooked apple into the baking pan and spread it evenly, followed by the cherries and crumble.

it should look like this ya, tuan tuan and puan puan! πŸ™‚

9. Bake at 180 C for 25 minutes.

alamak, I forgot to wear my glove -tolong jangan tiru chef macam ni ya! Dangerous...

assistant yang sangaaat sebok, but sangaaat menghiburkan! Dont worry abt the oven- it's tempered glass.

10. When done, leave to cool for at least 30 mins. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
