Cinnamon and oats in the crumble topping, yummy apple slices – awesome apple crumble topped with cream!

apple-crumble-800x600

Growing up I always loved apple crumble (both Mum & Dad can confirm the many times I used to make single servings of apple crumble, and eat most of the crumble before actually cooking it with the apples).  The crumble I used then was pretty basic – flour, butter and brown sugar … yes, those lumps of butter just had to be eaten, rather than combined into the crumble!  But, I wanted to find a recipe that was a little more than just the plain one … and this one has definitely fit the bill.

Adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction, this recipe went down a treat recently with the family.  It’s a fine balance with getting the apples cooked just right – not too soggy, but not too crispy.  It helps by putting some crumble in the actual apples (weird I know, but it works!).  Try it out and see for yourself!
