I am sure many of you have searched recipes starting with "stove top", then it turns out you have to finish it in a oven. This apple crumble is 100% stove top. So, it can be made if you find yourself without an oven.
Most of the desserts I made are baked in an oven. There are some exceptions with refrigerated summer desserts but that is probably about it. While camping this past week, I wanted to make something warm and satisfying. So, I thought I would have a go at making crumble on a hob. Result is that it worked a treat!
Serves 4 (as a small dessert)
2 Large golden delicious apples, peeled, cored & cut into small wedges
3/4 Cup/95 grams of flour
1/4 Cup of sugar/50 grams, plus 1 tablespoon
Pinch of sugar
3 tablespoons of butter
1/4 Cup/60 ml of water
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Mix to combine. Then cut in the butter and use your fingers to incorporate it into the flour mixture until you have a crumble mixture. Set aside.
In a non stick skillet set over medium heat, add the apples and sprinkle over the tablespoon of sugar. Cook the apples for a few minutes and then add a bit of your water. Continue cooking until all the water has absorbed and then add more water. Continue cooking until apples are soft and golden in colour. Set aside.
Next, wrap the crumble mixture in aluminium foil and place in a skillet set over medium heat. Leave it for about 10 minutes then open it and stir it around the foil and wrap it back up. Cook for a further 5 minutes or so and open your foil again and stir. You should now notice the crumble mixture starting to cook and brown. Repeat these steps a few more times and you should have a cooked and golden crumble mixture!
To serve, put apple slices in a bowl and top with the crumble mixture. We served it with Greek yoghurt as it was what we had on hand. Worked really well as a camping dessert!
