Apple Crumble by Mandira Mani

Peel and cut cooking apples (grannies or bramleys) into slices and put in the bottom of a baking dish. Sprinkle with a bit of water and some cinnamon and the rind of a lemon. Mix in a bowl 1 cup of caster sugar and 3/4 cup of white flour (if you use other kinds of sugar and flour in an attempt to be healthy, it really defeats the purpose of this re...cipe, so really: just use the bad stuff!); grate 100gm or so butter (I prefer unsalted) and rub it in. The mixture should hold together when you squeeze it and be a bit like stiff cookie dough. Then sprinkle all over the top of the apples and bake at about 200 degrees C until golden and the apples pulpy. It's delicious with cream or custard. This recipe works with all kinds of fruit. In my latest one I did an apple/pear mix with blueberries and it was fab!
