Apple Crumble made from Scratch

 Apple crumble is one of the recipe which was in my mind for months. I wanted to bake it so badly each time i buy apples. Couple days of back, i got my hands on some lovely juicy apples. So decided to give it a try and the result was amazing.

The topping which i made is purely based on my taste, i made it less sweet because i dont like recipes which are too sweet, that you feel like you will get diabetics as soon as you finish the bowl. You can use some demerara sugar in this, it will give a nice crunchy topping. I also throwed some walnuts in my crumble to give a crunch.  

It is really important to use good juicy, crisp apples for this recipe. Because you want the apples to stand out for this. You dont want some mushy and disintegrated apples all over the dish. And it is really important to served this warm apple crumble with cold vanilla icecream. I asked hubby dear to get me some icecream when i started to make this. He too got me the best quality icecream. Each spoonful is like heaven for me..YUM YUM..

Preparation Time: 15 mins

Unsalted Butter -  75 gms + 4 tblspn for Greasing and Topping

Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F. Grease a 15 cm square pan with butter.

Start by making the crumbles. Take flour, baking powder, salt in a bowl and mix well.

Add in cold cubed butter and rub it with your fingers till it gets coarse crumbs.
