Recipe:Peach Apple Crumble with Toasted Almonds
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Its because of all the Film Studies work I have got going on. It's ridiculous, i have never done a course where a huge percentage of the coursework is wanted BEFORE the end of the first half term. Mental. I really should have chosen to study something easier than Film Noir. Yeah, great idea Mel, choose to study a genre that is ridiculously hard to classify and has hundred of complicated films to choose from. Blegh. I love them though. I got these apples from my friend Ralph's garden, this is a really nice and interesting crumble recipe- usually i don't try anything other than the normal apple or apple and blackberry but this is luuush
Peach and apple crumble, with sugared toasted almonds (serves 6) 75p per person with custard!
600g apples, cooked or eating, peeled and diced
1 x 400g tin peach sliced in fruit juice, drained (240g drained weight) and diced
Juice of half a lemon
110g soft butter
220g plain flour
170g golden caster sugar
50g flaked almonds
Dusting of icing sugar
1. Heat oven to 180C. Pour the diced apple and peach into a large ovenproof dish, sprinkle over lemon juice and sugar.
2. Mix together the butter, flour and sugar with the tips of your fingers- until a fine sandy consistency. Pour the crumble mixture over the fruit, and put into the oven for 50 minutes until the crumble has begun to brown.
3. Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a dry pan until beginning to brown. Whilst still hot, toll in a little dusted icing sugar.
4. Take the crumble out of the oven, sprinkle over the sugared toasted almonds, and serve with custard, cream or ice cream.
