Hi all,

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 !
