The humble apple crumble
As the weather begins to turn colder, we’re all on the lookout for heartier home comforts, and there’s nothing like a classic Apple Crumble for the perfect crowd-pleasing pudding.
Many of our delicious British apples come into season in Autumn, so it’s the perfect time to get peeling in terms of both flavour and budget – not to mention reduced food miles and supporting local growers.
You probably don’t need any further convincing to get cracking with this wonderfully straightforward recipe, but just in case here are three great reasons to roll up your sleeves and have fun baking with the kids:
- As a fun recipe with plenty of hands-on crumbling, this is a great way to get kids involved with what they’re eating – which tends to win over fussier eaters!
- Even better, it’s a fantastic opportunity for family time at a pick-your-own orchard Healthy outdoor exercise and more fruit in the kids’ diets is a complete win-win situation.
- Crumble is the perfect comfort food for crisp Autumn days.
Inspired? Don’t forget that you can always pop in other fruits to add in a bit of variation, so if you’ve got brambles bursting with blackberries in the back garden, make the most of them while they last!
