Eating Apple and Tinned Peach No Sugar Crumble
I am forever trying to make a meal out of whatever is left over. I really fancied a crumble last week but with limited stock I came up with this. It uses a small amount of honey instead of refined sugar,the eating apples work just as well as cooking ones and the tinned peaches compliment the apples perfectly.
Filling Ingredients: 4 eating apples (any type), Juice of 1 orange, small squeeze of honey, 1 tin of peaches in juice.
Crumble Topping Ingredients: 150g plain flour, 60g unsalted butter, 30g ground almonds, 30g flaked almonds, 2 tbsp honey.
Other: Small knob of butter for greasing the dish.
Pre-heat oven to Gas 5, 190C
Step 1: Peel and chunky chop the apples. Add to a small saucepan along with the orange juice and a squirt of honey. Simmer for 5 minutes or until tender but not breaking up, you still want a bit of firmness.
Step 2: Grease an oven proof dish with butter only. Arrange the apples over the bottom of the dish and top with the drained peach slices. Set aside and make the crumble top.
Step 3: Using your fingers (little fingers love this job!) mix together the flour and butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the other ingredients and stir. It will make a sort of cobbled mix with the honey instead of the sugar but will crunch fine still after cooking. Arrange the mix on top of the fruit and cook for about 25 minutes. Easy! And tasty! And healthy! x
