Apple and Berry Crumble
Serves : 6
6 Pink Lady apples, skin on and cut into wedges
1 Tablespoon caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon orange zest, finely grated
1 Tablespoon water
400g frozen or fresh mixed berries
1 cup plain flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup hazelnut meal
1 teaspoon mixed spice
100g unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Lightly grease a CorningWare French White 1.4L Oval Casserole.
2. Place apples, sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and water in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Simmer for 10 minutes then add the berries. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, then transfer the mixture into the casserole dish and set aside to cool slightly.
3. Combine flour, sugar, hazelnut meal and mixed spice in a large bowl. With clean hands, rub the butter in until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
4. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruit. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the crumble is crunchy and golden.
Note: Try using other fruit in your crumble such as pear, rhubarb, mango or peach.
