... in recipes

Last week temperatures dropped below 10° Celsius here in Vienna. For me this meant two things – freezing when going outside and buying all the ingredients for an apple crumble.Warm apples in combination with vanilla ice or vanilla sauce are wintery heaven. Soooo good!

I’m sure that most of you know how to make apple crumble but for the few who don’t I will share my recipe with you.
  • Apples (I took four apples for three people – huge portions)
  • Raisins or Cranberries
  • Sugar (I used a combo of sugar and cinnamon)
  • Butter
  • Flour

How to:
Cut the apples into pieces (some recipes tell you to peel the apples but I didn’t – really depends on your own taste) and put them into a buttered casserole dish. I mixed some cranberries that a soaked with apple juice under the apples. You can also take raisins soaked in rum but we were out of those. 
For the crumble you mix some warm (room temperature) butter cubes with flour and sugar (I used a mixture of vanilla sugar and cinnamon) and knead it into crumbly dough. 
Sprinkle over the apples and cranberries and put it into the oven for about 30 minutes until the apples are warm and soft. 
 I served it with vanilla sauce but it tastes even better with vanilla ice cream!
