So here we have this new recipe, and it was so good, I had to include the recipe on my blog, as I know I will want to make this again and again, and really, why can't there be more than one great recipe for any dish, especially if they are different.
Another reason I had to add it is you can't really compare the two as the toppings are completely different. The other one has a traditional crumble feel, this one the crumble topping that reminds me of an ANZAC biscuit, it was crisp and tasty.
My family really enjoyed this, the apples I cooked where they were just cooked and soft, but they still held their shape. If you prefer it softer, and 'jammier' just bake it a little longer. The crumble topping was crisp and flavourful, it really is a delicious crumble.
I found it just a little bit too sweet for me, while my family didn't. If you to find it sweet, you could reduce the sugar in the topping to 1/2-3/4 cup sugar. But I tend to always make a recipe as written first, then adjust the next time I made it. The tartness of the apples can also affect the overall sweetness. My green apples were quite sweet.
Apples, pears, peaches, berries would all work with this crumble topping. Just adjust the sugar with how sweet the fruit is that you are using. I would use less sugar with sweet peaches, for example.
So here is another apple crumble recipe that my family loves, hope yours does to.
