Apple crumble is also a lovely dessert to enjoy. This apple crumble recipe is in my file since my very first job. I have found that many people do love apple desserts quite a lot. This one is quick to make and the topping ingredients also keep fresh in the fridge for some time. I have always been keen on recipes that are tasty but it must not contain pages full of ingredients and this ingredient list for this apple crumble is fairly short.

I personally compare apple crumble with English speaking people, I don't know why, but for me that is. I think the thought of a large British Estate with the happy family and girls with their moms sitting at the high tea table is my picture of the affair.

My fellow chef- a colleague at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm, Ronelle Liebenberg used to tell me this apple crumble is one of her personal favourite desserts amongst all our recipes we used to make. Serving it with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or lovely homemade ice-cream will compliment this apple crumble.

Or just simply serve it with creme anglaise, a delicious confectioners custard.

What is also nice about this recipe is that you can use blueberries, raspberries or strawberries when in season. If no berries are in season, simply make it only an apple crumble, Add some raisins to your taste with and some ground cinnamon and make this one your personally own!

You can bake it completely off, then later just quickly heat it in the microwave, but do stay and look after it. If you wish not to put it in the oven again.

This is also a good apple crumble recipe to play with when you decide in which ramekin you want to bake it. Nowadays see-through ramekins look beautiful, like a see-through teacup from a glass. I used to use a small white little bowl to bake it in, added the cream or ice-cream on top, placed the bowl in the middle and added some coulis around for a beautifully plated dessert.
