One of our favourite treats, also great with peaches!!
For Apple base
- 3 large or 4 smaller apples (granny smith type are the best)
- 80g / 3oz sugar
- 5g flour
- Cinnamon powder, as much or as little you like (I use about 1 heaped tsp.)
Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon, set it aside.
Peel, remove the core of apples then slice them in about 1cm thickness. As you work with apples, keep the slices in bowlful of water with juice of half lemon.
Drain the apples well, and add the dry mixture and combine evenly. Place the apple mixture in a medium sized oven proof baking dish (20cm/7in. circa with about 5cm / 2in. depth).
For the topping,
- 70g / 2,5 oz unsalted butter, melted
- 100g /3,5 oz flour
- 100g brown sugar
- a pinch of baking powder
- 50g crushed almond or walnuts.
combine the above ingredients. Pour and spread evenly over the apple mixture. Bake it in a preheated oven at 180C/350F for about 40 min. or the topping is golden brown.
Let it cool, enjoy it with your choice of topping, custard, whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!!
