Apple and Walnut Crumble

by . Featured in HOW TO EAT

Introduction

In How to Eat, I suggested this as a recipe for two. Yes, my portions are always generous, but the thing is, on certain days, we just ate this, the two of us, for supper in its entirety. Or almost: I always had custard to pour over, too.

Cooked more traditionally, it’s enough for 3 comfortably, and if you have small children eating with you, then it’ll stretch to 4. If you don’t have marsala to hand, do use rum; if you want to do without the alcohol altogether, then use apple juice to plump up the sultanas.

I use an oval pie dish for this, squat dish, rather than wide and shallow with a capacity of just under a litre / 4 cups. You can go smaller, but don’t go larger.

  • When I make the crumble I always spread the crumble on an oven sheet and precook in the oven for a short while before topping the fruit with it in the oven dish and then proceed to cook the whole thing as prescribed, that way none of the crumble is soggy and it all has a good crunchy finish.
