Directions For Making The Perfect Apple Crumble
Making an apple crumble for dessert is the easiest thing to do. There is no complex process. The directions for making the apple crumble in the easiest way are directed below.
Step 1: Preheat The Oven
Take an 8×8 inch baking dish. Grease the dish with butter. Place it in the middle rack of the oven. Now preheat the oven at 350° F.
Step 2: Prepare The Apples
Take 4-5 apples and peel their skins off. Then cut them into wedges. A lot of people don’t peel them off. But, the skin of the apple adds a weird taste to the crumble. So it is recommended to get rid of the skin.
Step 3: Make The Filling
Take a medium-sized saucepan. Put all the apples into the saucepan. Then pour apple cider vinegar and water. Let it simmer over very low heat. Cover the pan with a lid and stir occasionally once every 1 minute.
Add 2 tbsp. water to make the filling moist. Stir consistently so that the apples do not burn at the bottom of the pan. Do this for 15 minutes.
Now uncover the pan and add cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Stir and mix well. The apples should look tender and the juice should look thick.
Step 4: Make The Topping
In a food processor or blender, put in flour, oats, walnuts, cinnamon, coconut oil, and salt. Pulse until they are crumbly. If you think that it’s too dry, you can add a teaspoon of water. This will help the mixture to crumble and form clumps.
Step 5: Assemble And Bake
Scoop the apple filling into the previously greased baking sheet. Sprinkle the crumbled toppings on top of the filling. Now put it to bake for 20 to 30 minutes at 350° F. You’ll see that the toppings are becoming golden brown and crispy. That’s when you’ll know that the dessert is complete and ready to eat.
Serve it with whipped cream, custard, or ice cream.
