gluten free apple crumble …

this apple crumble has just been taken out of the oven. and that is about as fresh as you can get!

this recipe is just so simple. and easy. and it’s gluten free.

ingredients
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
9 large apples peeled, cored, and sliced (i used granny smith apples)
1 cup of gluten free all purpose flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup melted butter

method
1) preheat the oven to 200c.
2) melt 1 tablespoon of butter and spread on the bottom of a 9″ × 13″ dish.
3) combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl.

4) add the apples and toss to coat. transfer the apple mixture to the dish.

most of my time was spent on preparing the apples. note to self – must buy an apple corer.

5) combine the flour, sugar, and the rest of the melted butter in a medium bowl. blend the ingredients until a coarse meal forms.

6) spread the mixture evenly over the apples.

7) bake the gluten-free apple crumble for 20 mins. reduce the oven temperature to 180c. continue baking until the apples are tender and the topping is golden brown, about 35-40 mins. let the crisp stand 15 minutes before serving.

8) serve warm and with vanilla ice cream.

the recipe was pinned’ from fooducopia.

note: in australia and the uk this dish is called apple crumble. americans and canadians know it as apple crisp.

being late in the evening i had a tiny bit of the crumble. omg. the sugar and cinnamon had caramelised and was chewy and sweet. there was a whole lot of textures happening. the softness of the stewed apples versus the crunchiness of the crumble. perfect.

i could have had more but it’s not exactly ideal to be eating this kind of food after 11pm. however i’ll be going to bed with the aroma of freshly baked apples and cinnamon wafting through the house. *happy sigh*

the rest of the family can have this tomorrow. i hope they remember to leave me some. if not, i’ll just have to make some more. gladly.
