Sudeshna Bandyopadhyay wrote in to us and showed us how to make Apple Crumble


  • 2 apples, peeled, stoned and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • cup icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Vanilla ice cream or fresh cream for serving (optional)


  • In a thick bottom flask take the chopped apples and mix well with cup icing sugar
  • Stew the apples over low flame with occasional stirring
  • The apples should become soft but not totally pureed
  • Place the apples in an oven-proof pan
  • Mix the remaining sugar with the all-purpose flour and butter until it looks like bread crumps
  • Cover the cooked apple with the flour mix
  • Preheat the oven to 150 C
  • Place the pan in the middle rack of the preheated oven and cook for 30 min or till the upper layer turns light brown
  • Take out and serve hot with fresh cream or vanilla ice cream
