Salted Caramel Apple Crumble
This cosy Apple Crumble is rustled up with just five ingredients, chief among them Salted Caramel which adds a sweet-and-salty edge to the proceedings! We recommend baking this dessert in small ramekins and serving with scoop (or two!) of ice cream.
Prepare The Apple
Peel, core and slice your apples into bite-sized cubes (make sure to remove the seeds or other inedible parts).
Heat a skillet, adding the butter and then the apples. Cook the the apples over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes or so (regularly stirring), until they start to soften. We are not looking to over-cook the apples here (they will be baked in the oven), but to simply draw out the moisture and soften them a bit.
Remove from heat and dollop on the salted caramel, tossing until the apples are evenly coated with that gloriously sweet and sticky caramel sauce.
Prepare The Crumble Topping
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
Cut the butter into little pieces and rub it into the dry flour mixture with your fingers. You can also just use a stand mixer/ hand mixer to do the job more neatly for you! But if you prefer large, heavier clusters of crumble, then the rubbing method works best.
Bake Your Crumble
Distribute the caramel-coated apples between the ramekins, spreading a layer of crumble evenly on top.
Bake the crumble for anywhere between 20-30 minutes, until it has a firm golden-brown top and you can see the caramelised apples bubbling around the edges (if you’re lucky some caramel clusters might find their way to the surface of the crumble too!).
Transfer the ramekins to a wire rack and let them cool before tucking in with a dollop more of salted caramel or a scoop of ice cream.
