Apple Cider & Berry Crumble

Apple Cider & Berry Crumble

INGREDIENTS

For the filling:

4-5 large Granny Smith apples

1 cup of frozen mixed berries

2 bottles of Cider (reserve half a bottle to drink yourself whilst cooking)

100g Caster Sugar

For the topping:

100g brown sugar

100g butter/margarine

100g plain flour

50g rolled oats

50g shredded coconut

1 tsp cinnamon

 

METHOD

  • Heat oven to 180c (fan forced) or 200c (regular)
  • Peel the apples and chop into chunks (around 3-4cm)
  • Pour the sugar over the apples and cover them with the cider.
  • Bring to a simmer over a medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Apples should just soften but still have a slight crunch.
  • Meanwhile, make the crumble: place all dry ingredients into a bowl and rub the butter through with your fingertips until the mixture resembles bread crumbs and holds together when pressed.
  • Drain the apples (drink the left over cider) and put them in an oven-proof dish.  Sprinkle over the frozen berries.
  • Cover the apples and berries with the crumble topping.
  • Put the crumble in the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.
  • Serve with cream or ice-cream.
