Was really chilly this morning so fancied something to kick start the day with.As breakfasts go this really fits the bill, rather like being wrapped in a duvet of deliciousness!A great treat for weekends.
6/8 slices of white bread (preferably slightly stale)
125g chilled butter cut into small cubes
100g nuts (i.e. almonds,hazelnuts,walnuts or pecans)
Using a food processor whizz together bread till they form crumbs. Add the chilled butter,sugar and nuts and blitz again till they are mixed well then set aside.
To make the apple crumble
Take a shallow dish (about 30cm x 18cm or
Peel,core and chop 6 dessert apples into small pieces and place in a the shallow dish.Sprinkle over 2 tablespoons of sugar and then top with the crumble mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 180oc for 25 -30 minutes until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve with salted caramel sauce and ice cream.
The apple crumble will keep well for 3-4 days. just reheat it in oven .The sauce will keep for at least a week in the fridge and is totally yummy poured over ice cream.
