{food} apple crumble

Craving sweet stuff. What can I cook, easy, simple, kid-join-in-friendly? Apple Crumble. I found a Jamie Oliver recipe that is just so simple. I just sprinkled on a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon before baking. Delish!
I peeled and cored the apples, then cut in to large chunks. M then the chunks cut in to small pieces tiny slivers with a plastic knife. We measured, poured, crumbled and mixed. Then we sprinkled and baked. Lots of licking and tasting.
The only problem is, she doesn't enjoy eating most of the sweet stuff we cook together.

OK, it's not really a problem for me.
I eat it for her.

Like I said, it was delicious.

Jamie Oliver's Apple Crumble

For the crumble:
• 35g rolled oats
• 35g wholemeal flour
• 20g caster sugar
• 35g margarine or butter

For the filling:
• 400g cooking apples, peeled, cored and quartered
• 50g sugar, to sweeten
• 1 tablespoon water

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5. Peel and core the apples, quarter and cut in to chunks.

Put the apples in to a pan with the sugar and water. Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes and place in a small oven proof dish.

Place the flour and oats in a bowl and mix well. Cut the margarine or butter in to small cubes and add this to the oats and flour. Mix with your fingertips until it resembles an even crumb texture. Add the sugar and mix through.

Cover the fruit with the crumble mixture. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apple hot.
