We have had such a wonderful week with Emily of Adeline & Lumiere and we're ending with my most favourite dessert- apple crumble! Thank you Emily for your amazing Guest Blog and creating all these tasty meals for us! You can like Adeline & Lumiere on Facebook here and be sure to bookmark the Adeline & Lumiere blog too. Thanks again Em! -Jenny x

It’s Friday the 13th! Augh. Now I’m not a superstitious sort of person but just to make sure everything goes to plan for dessert, I’ve decided to make the most reliable and delicious dessert of all time. The humble Apple (not pie, but) Crumble. You know, at one point when I was a kid mum made an Apple Crumble for dessert every night for what felt like months! My brother and I thought it was the best thing ever. During this time, mum experimented and started adding some toasted muesli into the mix which gave it a crunchy texture. So in this recipe I’ve added my own homemade toasted muesli to the crumble.

Apple Crumble has to be served hot out of the oven with ice cream, melting perfectly over the top. Heaven! I made a Honey Ice Cream last week on the Adeline & Lumiere blog so I thought I’d serve this with the Apple Crumble. These two paired together are unbelievably good, you’ve really got to try it!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes over the past week.

Apple Crumble for Dessert

Serves 4

5 small cooking apples
1/2 tsp cinnamon
½ tbsp sugar
¾ cup plain flour
½ cup brown sugar
100g butter
½ cup toasted muesli

Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut the apples into 8ths and place in a saucepan with a tablespoon of water, cinnamon and sugar. Let the apples cook for 5 minutes and then drain any excess water. Place the apples into either a large dish or individual ramekins.

In another separate bowl combine plain flour, brown sugar and butter. Rub in the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs and add the toasted muesli.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Once cooked sprinkle with a little extra toasted muesli and serve with Homemade Honey ice cream.
