What happens when you are suddenly free after finishing a project? For me, I immediately get back to my neglected baby, my blog. When I got up this morning, I was starving and didn’t want to have usual breakfast. Idea – make something for breakfast and blog and yes quick, remember I was starving? I had saved the recipe of Apple Crisp yesterday while performing my daily ritual – Tastespotting. Its addictive man. I loved Dawn’s presentation and decided to try this out. Most crisps and crumbles are pretty straightforward (Is there a difference??) and can go with any seasonal fruits like pears, peaches, cherries etc. I like mine with apples specially when they have been lying around for a while and no one was eating them. Best served warm with a dollop of fresh cream or with ice-cream for a more formal dessert. Here is how it goes:
Flour 1/2 cup
Brown sugar 2/3 cup [Use a little less if you prefer mild sweet]
Rolled oats 1/2 cup
Cinnamon grounded 3/4 tsp
Nutmeg grated (optional) 1/4 tsp
Nuts and raisins (optional) 1/3 cup
Butter softened 1/3 cup
1. Wash, peel,de-seed and cut apples into cubes. (I prefer with skin on)
2. Put them on a pie dish.
3. Mix rest of the ingredients and rub with fingers to resemble crumbs.
4. Spread on the apples evenly.
5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at gas mark 5 for about 30 minutes.
