In a 23cm (9 in) square baking dish, mix sliced apples with brown sugar. In a large bowl, mix together flour, caster sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, beat together egg and melted butter. Stir into flour mixture. Spread evenly over apples.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until topping is golden and crisp.
I had already prepared my apple so just used this recipe for the topping.....it tasted great BUT if I wanted apple with cake on top I would hav searched for just that, it was not a crumble AT ALL but my hubby did hav a second helping so not all bad I guess.....
Sorry but I have to agree with some of the previous comments. This was WAY too sweet! I would recommend you half the amount of brown sugar in the apples and use only 100g of caster sugar in the topping. I wasnt too sure about the topping as most of the reviews were 'for' it I gave it a go and I have to say i'd rather have a proper crumble. Perhaps if it hadn't been too sweet it may have been more of a hit. Even my hubby didnt eat it and he loves apple pie/crumble and will usually eat anything that I cook! Cooked on 140C in a fan oven (160 conventional) for 40 minutes and it was cooked perfectly, apples were lovely and soft, just too sweet! Will not make again though
an easy reciepe to make, however was confused on the topping as i didnt state how to spread it. ive never made apple crumble before and mine turned out like a dough, which i wasnt expecting so i broke the dough in pieces and put it on top as evenly as i could... also was very sweet and sickly but the topping tasted now but it was nothing like the apple crumble we'd get in school
hmmm i wasn't a fan of the topping at all,,it was kinda chewy and too sweet for my liking, not really that "crumbly" at all...however my husband LOVED it and would definately like it again so not all bad i suppose..
