The recipe today is a simple apples and cinnamon crumble. It's very tasty and easy to do. This recipe is tasty alone, and even better with vanilla ice cream !
Follow these simple steps to make this easy cake !
Step 1: Ingredients
For this crumble, you will need:
- 5 big apples
- 100 gr of flour
- grounded cinnamon
- 80 + 30 gr of butter
- 80 gr of sugar
- one bag of vanilla sugar
Step 2: Prepare the Dough
In a large bowl, put 100 gr of flour and 80 gr of sugar. Add also about 1/2 tablespoon of grounded cinnamon.
Measure 80 gr of butter and cut it in small slices in the bowl. Wait a couple of minutes to let the butter to heat up a bit at room temperature.
Now we will make the crumbs. With your hands, "crumble" the ingredients with the tip of your fingers. After a couple of minutes, you should start to have a "sand" texture like the pictures. Take the bigger bits of dough and crumble them with your finger. It's easy ! Just don't press on the dough - we don't want something compact !-. Just use the tip of your finger to get this sand texture.
Put the dough bowl into the fridge while working on the apples.
Step 3: The Apples
Ok, start peeling some beautiful apples. In my case, I took about 5 big apples.
Cut them in four, remove the seeds, and cut them again in small slices.
We will bake them a bit in a pan before the main baking in the oven. Some recipes doesn't bake them (the apples are raw before final oven baking). I prefer this, as the result is smoother...!
Put 30 gr of butter in a large pan. Once the butter is melted, add the apples slices. Bake them for about 6-10 minutes. Carefully stir them with a wooden spoon (I don't want to scratch my pan !). At mid-baking, add one bag of vanilla sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon.
Stop baking once you have transparent edges on the apples.
Step 4: Assembly and Baking
In a large mold, put the apples and the juice (completely empty the pan). With the spoon, level the apple layer to have a flat surface.
Spread the dough on it. Try to cover all the apples !
Once done, put the mold in the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes at 170°C. Stop baking when the dough starts to become brown.
Step 5: Finishing
Here we are, a very tasty crumble cake. If you want to make it tastier, add some vanilla ice-cream with it !
You can eat it hot, or let it cool. The better is to have the mid-warm crumble and the ice-cream... It's incredible !
