Sometimes the good old-fashioned recipes are the best.  Apple crumble is my son Fjord’s favourite


120 g butter

125 ml sugar

1 egg

2 ml vanilla essence

2 cups (500 ml) flour

10 ml baking powder

pinch salt


1 large tin pie apples

60 ml raisins or sultanas (optional)

50 ml brown sugar

cinnamon for dusting


Heat oven to 200° C

Grease pie dish, mine is a rectangle 28 x 19 cm


Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, add egg and vanilla essence, beat well

Sift flour, baking pwd, and salt into the butter mix.  Beat – the mixture will be crumbly

halve the mixture, press half into the base of the pie dish and bake for about 5 mins, refrigerate the other half


Combine the tart apples and sugar (and raisins if using)

Spoon onto the pastry base

Dust the top with cinnamon

Sprinkle the remaining pastry crumb mix over the top and bake for 25 mins until golden brown
