Nigella also claims that rubbing the butter in by hand makes for a "more gratifyingly nubbly crumble; the processor can make the crumbs so fine you end up … with a cakey rather than crumbly texture". I love anything with a streusel or crumble top and when this was made I found myself helping myself to spoonful after spoonful of this. A bed of spiced quinces and apples are topped with a brown sugar, coconut and oatmeal butter topping. All rights reserved. First published on Thu 14 Oct 2010 07.00 BST. There are actually 2 recipes for apple crumble so I kind of mixed both recipes. And Ryan's favourite fruit is the humble apple. Freezing? Granulated demerara sugar would add crunch and flavour, but also graininess, which I'm not keen on, so I eventually settle on a half and half demerara and golden caster sugar mix as a compromise. I briefly whizz 175g plain flour in the food processor with 175g butter until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs, and then stir in 100g caster sugar and sprinkle over a little water, so it comes together into "small pebbles". It contains just four ingredients: fruit, flour, sugar and butter. The resulting crumble is a bit less craggy and interesting – it tastes the same, but with crumble, that's hardly the point. Jane Grigson uses an equal mixture of ground almonds and plain flour – nuts seem to be a popular addition, often, as in the case of chopped hazel or walnuts, adding texture, but in this case, presumably melting into the crumble as a whole to flavour it. We should take a leaf out of the American book, she says, by using fresh, rather than stewed fruit (something I do anyway, unless apples are concerned), and a crisp butter, brown sugar and spice topping. Some say they were sent to the soldiers and they transported well because the ingredients don't spoil easily and they are sturdy enough to withstand travelling around the world. Put this in the freezer for 10 minutes, or if making ahead, in the fridge until you're ready to bake. Initially we were surprised that he chose the apple out of every fruit in the world but then it made sense-he is all American like apple pie. "Apples are wholesome," he answered with a smirk (unlike figs I guess!). To make doubly sure, however, I've kept some of the mixture back, and this time, skip the water stage. Ivy answered that she loves grapes because she likes how they burst in your mouth, are portable and aren’t messy to eat. Serve with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of golden syrup. This goes on top of some stewed apples and blackberries, and into the oven at 200C for 30 minutes until golden and crisp, by which time the pink juices of the fruit have bubbled through the topping and caramelised promisingly on the surface (and, less happily, on the oven floor). The resulting crumble is a bit less craggy and interesting – it tastes the same, but with crumble, that's hardly the point. DID YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE? And that is the time when we bake ANZAC biscuits. Pre-heat the oven to 200C. I promise that when you pull this out the oven, you'll find it hard to resist the caramel that bubbles around the edges. Gratifyingly, I can't tell the difference once cooked – but I would second her caution to go carefully if you're using a food processor, and pulse it rather than switching it on full, or you'll end up with tiny, floury crumbs.

Ryan threw out the question, "What is your favourite fruit?". Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Peel, core, and slice apples into 1/4-inch slices. Put the flour, baking powder and pinch of salt in a bowl. In homage to these humble origins, I decide to start off with the plainest crumble recipe I can find, in Nigel Slater's Real Fast Puddings ("comfort food of the highest order"). 1. Portokalopita Greek Filo Blood Orange Cake! Half goes into the freezer for 10 minutes, and the remainder goes into the oven immediately, on top of another bowl of stewed apple and blackberries. So tell me Dear Reader, what is your favourite fruit and do you think your fruit choice says a lot about your personality? Stir in the sugars. In fact, you can play around with flavourings, if you must, as much as you like, as long as you keep the mixture fairly light, and don't overwork it. However they were more commonly used at fundraisers as they are today. Sprinkle with a little cold water and rake through with a fork until you have a lumpy, crumbly mixture. I answered definitively, "Fig".

Not only are they luscious but they are beautiful and unlike any other fruit. Place the quinces in a saucepan with the water, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla and bring to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes or until the quinces are cooked and soft. See below for the recipe. When I was five, I decided I was going to be the chef of my own restaurant – located underwater, naturally. These treats are made with oats, flour, brown sugar, coconut and golden syrup and are simple but one of the tastiest biscuits you could ever eat. Combine the flour, ground almonds (if using), and butter in a food processor or large bowl, and pulse briefly, or rub with your fingertips, until the mixture resembles very coarse breadcrumbs with a few larger lumps. 2. The sad thing is that, although I've been trying for nearly two decades, I've never managed to make a crumble that matched up to the stuff we were served at school. Dot the dinner lady, I salute you – how I wish I'd asked for the recipe, instead of just seconds. Add the flour to thicken the liquid and then add the apple raw (the apple doesn't need to cook like the quinces). "I like the crunch and they’re filling. Spices – ground cinnamon, ginger and so on – also work well in moderation. 1 kg of apples ( I mixed royal gala + granny smith), 75g unsalted butter, cold and cut in small cubes. Thu 14 Oct 2010 07.00 BST Cook in a pan with the butter and add the raisins when they have grown in size. The result is good; not as floury as previous recipes I've used, and without too much sponginess either; Nigel likes the soggy bit underneath, I'm more about the crisp top. Place apples in a large mixing bowl and toss with … I've never heard of adding water to a crumble topping before, although now I know the history of the dish, it makes sense in a frugal sort of a way, and it certainly seems to have done the trick when it comes to binding the thing together.
Don't just save this for ANZAC Day and if you love the ANZAC flavour and desserts on the sweeter side, this is a pushy recipe! You can make this using whatever fruit you like-make it all apples or use whatever fruit is in season. Nigel Slater suggests almonds go best with stone fruits, such as Jane's apricots, or, in fact, my plums. When they're both ready, I look carefully. See below for the recipe. Add the flour to thicken the liquid and then add the apple raw (the apple doesn't need to cook like the quinces). Peel, core, and cut the apples into dices. Bake for 25 minutes. In a rectangle pie dish, pour the apple compote then pour in the crumble. Stop when your mixture resembles oatmeal. Crushed amaretti biscuits and cardamom seeds are all very well if you like that kind of thing, but I have a suspicion they weren't in our school kitchen, so I seek out advice from less showy sources. Arrange the crumble over the top of the fruit – don't press it down – and sprinkle with oats or nuts if using. The last of the peaches are still around, their prices climbing in relation to their scarcity. Nigella's crumble - frozen topping equals crunch. Admirably balanced, I'd say, if perhaps a little light on seafood for the setting – and although I might go for something more adventurous on the savoury side today, I'd still pick a crumble over any number of chocolate fantasias or Pernod panna cottas for afters. There's not much in it, but the chilled mixture is indeed studded with a few more lumps and bumps than the one cooked straight away, which suggests that freezing is a good tip if you're not pressed for time. And I don't even like overly sweet food! You can also add any spices at this point (½ tsp ground cinnamon or ginger, for example, for apples or plums). I like the flavour of the soft brown sugar, but the fine texture makes the finished crumble topping a little sandy for my taste, which prompts me to consider alternatives. Add the sugars and stir through. Reducing the ratio, as Nigel suggests, to a quarter or a third of the flour weight, would help to lighten things up again, while retaining that lovely sweet, nutty quality.
