Apple Crumble Slice

There is something about Apple Crumble that makes us all think of our grandma and comfort food. Well this slice is no different. My nanas favourite was apple and rhubarb crumble, but I have turned this around and made it into a slice, which makes it a bit easier to dish out as you can cut it and everyone get the same amount of crumble and apple. I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid it was always can I have more crumble… This way same amount of apple and crumble for everyone, as long as you spread it evenly!

You have a nice cakey base, tart, apple centre and crunchy, crumble top. Honestly what is not to like. Serve it with, cream, custard, ice-cream, or just have a nice big slice all to yourself. This can be served hot or cold and I think taste delicious either way.

This recipe is for a large slice tin 25cm by 35cm and cuts into approximately  50 pieces. This recipe halves very easily for a smaller slice.

Comes out nice and golden brown.

This is a favourite of mine, I hope you like it. I must say that it is a bit messy and you will probably need a plate to eat it off, so no just grabbing a slice out of the fridge on the sly and eating it quick!

What is your favourite way to eat anything apple crumble? Custard? Cream? Ice Cream or something entirely different?

Enjoy Irresponsibly!
