Apple Crumble with Topping

“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter’s evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream… I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people’s tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.” Mark Twain

I started off making this recipe as a ‘It’s a Sunday, let me make SOMETHING!’ sort of experiment. I have friends who rave about apple crumbles and though i’ve never liked them too much, this one seemed different, and different it was! In a good way, of course! Everyone loved it; I mean it was an absolute minx of a cake. This one definitely gets the THUMBS UP! Serve with ice cream- A heavenly after-dinner dessert.

Apple Crumble with Brown Sugar Icing.
Adapted from chocolateandzucchini.com

180g butter, softened
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 apples cut into small pieces
2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk
Walnuts, as many as you prefer.

Set your oven to 180 C .

Beat the butter and sugar together till fluffy and light then add the eggs.

Using a wooden spoon, fold in the remaining ingredients (flour, baking powder, apples and milk).
Spread it into the prepared baking dish and bake for around 35-40 minutes. Set aside to cool. Serve with ice cream over top with icing.

Icing
100g butter
3 Tbsp milk
½ cup brown sugar
¾ cup icing sugar

This is an unbelievably simple to make, just melt the sugar and butter together, add the milk and bring to a boil, all the while stirring continuously. You can add more milk or reduce the sugar depending on the consistency you like the frosting. Remove from heat and put in the icing sugar once the mixture has cooled. Carefully spread over the baked and cooled apple crumble.
