Apple Crumble

With this recipe, I’m beginning the process of archiving my signature dishes as also those experiments that I’ve based on Net-based recipes and I’d like to Apple Crumbleremember them.

I’d got the initial recipe of this Crumble from my OTG (Over-Toaster-Grill) recipe book. It’s a non-descript booklet that came into my life some 10 years ago with a small Inalsa OTG. Two recipes from it have stood the test of time—this Crumble being one of the two. The Crumble doesn’t look pretty but it tastes great and gets assembled quickly…


  • 4 medium sized apples
  • Handful of black grapes—if in season
  • A mix of juice of half a lime+4 tsp brown sugar+quarter tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 200 gm flour (can be a mix of refined flour+wholewheat flour and even 2 tblspoon of oats)
  • 100 gm butter
  • 100 gm brown sugar

How to go about it:

. Mix flour(s) and the butter slab with finger tips till the mix resembles bread-crumbs

. Mix brown sugar in it till it distributes evenly

. Peel and chop apples in small bits (I use an electric chopper)

. Transfer apple bits into an over-proof dish

. Add the lime juice mix to it and give it a mix

. Put a layer of sliced black grapes, if using them

. Pack in half of the flour mix evenly as the top layer

. Bake at 250 deg celsius for 25-30 min

Eat it with vanilla ice cream if you want to really fall for your own creation 🙂

(Store the rest of the flour mix in a box in the fridge for the next round. It’ll keep for weeks)
