Apple Crumble Pie

I hear the sound of rain drops on the window while I am standing in the kitchen. They warn me that autumn has just arrived along with the cold. I feel it’s time to turn on the oven to bake an apple crumble pie!

Every season has its positive side. The autumn rain invites us to stay at home, to retreat and spend time with our loved ones. In my case, it means having quality time with my children and sharing my passion for cooking with them.

At this time of the year there are pleasurable contrasts such as staying indoors, sheltered from the rain and cold, or eating warm apple crumble pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top – there’s nothing like enjoying the moment while eating a delicious dessert!

The crumb is sprinkled on top of the apples, and it is what gives the crunch and flavour to the pie. The crumb layer is what tells you when the apple crumble is ready in the oven. When? When you see the crumb hard and golden brown.

The smell of hot apple coming straight from the oven invites me to enjoy the warmth of home surrounded by my loved ones. This fruity, homely aroma fills the kitchen, and I mentally see myself savouring every spoonful of this British dessert.

And what more could you ask for if this dessert with apple has ingredients with healthy properties! Apples provide vitamins, lots of fibre and regulate the intestine. In Spain we use Reineta for cooking, otherwise you can use Bramley apples.

This traditional British dessert can be eaten hot or cold with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you like.

How to Make Apple Crumble Pie

2. In a bowl, add 150 grams of flour, 150 grams of diced butter, 100 grams of sugar and 25 grams of vanilla sugar. Mix with your hands until crumbs form. Put it in the fridge to chill for about 20 minutes (or 5 minutes in the freezer).

3. Peel 6 apples ( Reineta or Bramley ) and then cut them into 8 or 10 pieces. Tip: Don’t cut them into very small pieces because they will fall apart when cooked and you don’t want a compote-like texture.

4. In a saucepan, add the apple slices, 90 grams of pitted plums, 60 grams of butter, 1 vanilla pod and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Sauté over medium heat until the apple begins to brown.

5. Pour 3 tablespoons of water and lower the heat covering the saucepan with a lid. Let it cook and stir occasionally until the apples are tender.

6. Pour the apple filling into a baking dish and sprinkle the crumbs on top.

7. Bake for 45 minutes. You will see that it is ready when the apple layer is bubbling and the crumble topping is golden brown. Et voilà… You just made a delicious apple crumble pie!
