Recipe: Whole Baked Apple Crumble

AppleCrumbleBake-44_web

On a cold autumn day nothing beats a lovely roast dinner finished off with a everyone’s favourite; the classic apple crumble.  Our Head Chef Ben knows a thing or two about puds and has kindly shared his recipe for this posh version of a whole baked apple encased in crumble mix.  It’s much easier than you think and looks very impressive  –  making it perfect for entertaining or, dare we say it , a lighter alternative to a traditional  Christmas pudding. Serve it with homemade vanilla custard or ice-cream (or both!)

 

Whole Baked Apple – serves 10

 

Ingredients

10     Cooking Apples  ( small-medium)

1pint    Apple Juice

1pint    White wine

2lb      Sugar

2          Cinnamon Stick

4oz      Butter

6oz      Flour

1oz      Oats

Rhubarb Compote

Rhubarb and Caster Sugar (10% of sugar to weigh of rhubarb)

 

 

Method

Create poaching liquor by adding all ingredients (less apples) to a large pan and simmer.

Peel and core apples and place in the simmering liquid for 5 minutes and then turn and poach for another 5 minutes.

Once cooled fill the centre of the apple with the rhubarb compote and pane the apple in the crumble mix

Bake off in the oven at 180c until golden brown.(approx. 20-25 minutes) and garnish with a mint leaf stem.

Serve with custard or vanilla ice-cream.
