Spiced apple crumble slice

Spiced apple crumble slice

by Marcus Wareing

 

Tip: Serve the apple crumble slice warm with a quenelle of vanilla ice cream

 

Ingredients

6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

100g of caster sugar

75g of unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing

1 free-range egg, beaten

40g of caster sugar

2 tbsp of semi-skimmed milk

75g of plain flour

50g of wholemeal flour

25g of wheatgerm

1/2 tsp baking powder

50g of oats, rolled

40g of wholemeal flour

50g of walnuts, chopped

15g of wheatgerm

1 pinch of salt

50g of caster sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 nutmeg, freshly grated

60g of unsalted butter

 

Method

Place the apples in a saucepan with the sugar. Cover and set over a low heat until the juice begins to come out of the apples. Slightly increase the heat and cook until the apples are soft, then set aside to cool

Preheat the oven to 165°C/ 325° F/ gas mark 3

For the shortbread base, cream together the butter and sugar, add the egg and milk, then mix in the flours, baking powder and wheatgerm. Spread over the bottom of a greased cake tin (approximately 20cm x 20cm x 5cm) and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin

Make the crumble by mixing all the dry ingredients together, ie. everything except the butter. Put the butter in a small saucepan, melt over a moderate heat, then pour it over the dry ingredients and mix together

Spread the apple over the shortbread base, then sprinkle the crumble mix over the top. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden
