As promised in my previous post, I’m here to share with you my simple, easy and fast apple crumble with custard sauce. If ever you run out of time to prepare a healthy dessert, dive for this one. You’ll put a smile on everyone’s face. I can say so because it happened recently when I made it for my daughter’s housemates. You can check that out at My New Friends On My Trip. Apples here are very fresh, and cheap and I really should be making this one more often…..*big smiles*.

Ok, this is another busy week and I have several easy and nice recipes to share with you so I’m going to make it short and sweet and really hope to come back very soon to write another post. Very busy for me means I’m out most of the day, lots of work at home, travelling or my brain is just exhausted. Have you ever felt it that way or am I the only one? Well, I would rather be busy than being bored……*big smiles*. I love an active life.

Here’s my apple crumble with custard sauce recipe. This is quite a big recipe, enough for at least 8 people. Well, it all depends on how much each one can eat. You can keep the left over in the fridge and warm it up in the oven the next day. It tastes just as good. Anyway, this recipe is so easy that you can adjust the amount easily on your own.

Ingredients A
9 medium red apples (peeled, cored and chopped)
4T sugar
2T custard powder

Mix apple with sugar and custard

Put all of Ingredients A into a mixing bowl. Toss to mix. You can omit the custard powder if you like but I love the smell and taste of custard.

Ingredients B (crumble topping)
250g butter (cut into pieces)
1/2C sugar
3C flour

Put all of ingredients B into a mixing bowl. Using finger tips, mix it until like bread crumbs. If you have a processor, it’s even faster. Just put everything into a processor. It takes a few seconds only. But I was away and I didn’t have a processor. It was fast with my finger tips too.

Place the apples into a baking tin which has been greased with some butter. You can use oil too. It’s easier to apply. I used a medium sized roasting pan.

Sprinkle the crumble over the apples.

Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes or when the crumble turns golden.

While the apple crumble is cooling down, make the custard sauce.

Ingredients C (custard sauce)
500ml milk
3T custard powder
1T sugar

Put all of Ingredients C into a small pot and bring to a slow boil using low to medium heat, stirring all the time. I used a whisk. It took quite a while to thicken. Keep stirring. Once it starts to thicken, it thickens very quickly. Remove from heat once it starts to boil.

To serve, place some apple crumble in a bowl, scoop over some custard sauce and enjoy. Mmmmm….it’s sooooo good. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that something so simple, so easy, and so quick to make is SO good!¬†And healthy too……*big smiles*

I don’t think you need a food processor, Mary : ), your ‘handmade’ crumble looks great!

Wow, that WAS a really simple recipe. Except I’ve never heard of custard powder. Partly why I don’t backed much. If I look at the ingredients list and have no idea what it is, I lose interest. Lol. I’m too lazy to go looking for it unless I really really want to try the recipe. Your apple crumble looks delicious. Next time I’m in the baking aisle, I’ll be sure to try to find custard powder. Thanks for your yummy recipe.
