Apple Crumble


apple crumbleApple crumble is one of our favourites but it can be a little sad when the crumble top goes soft, absorbing too much of the moisture from the fruit below.

So here’s the solution:
— bake the fruit and crumble top separately!

This way you can prepare the crumble top and fruit at any time of the day ready to be eaten when you’re ready and not lose any crunch from your crumble.

  • Serves: 6-8
  • Oven temperature: 180C (160C fan forced)
  • Cooking time: 10-15 minutes
  • Pan: 1 baking tray

Crumble top:
90g cold unsalted butter (straight from the fridge)
½ cup self-raising flour
¼ cup The Sugar Breakup Dextrose
