Cool winters nights are great for warm desserts. Helen loves apple crumble and this is one of her favourite recipes.
4 or 5 apples peeled and sliced

1 tablespoon of sugar

60 grams of cold butter

cup of rolled oats

cup of flour

cup of brown sugar

teaspoon of mixed spice

Butter the bottom and sides of a casserole dish.  Spread the apple slices over the bottom of the dish and sprinkle them with the tablespoon of sugar.  Grate the cold butter into a bowl.  Make sure your hands are clean then add in all the other ingredients (oats, flour, brown sugar and mixed spice)  use your hands to rub the butter into the other ingredients.  Sprinkle the crumble topping onto the apple slices.

Cook the apple crumble for about 20 minutes at 190 degrees Celsius or until the crumble is golden and crunchy and the apple is cooked through.

You can add other fruit to the crumble like sultanas, peach slices, berries.  Serve this ice cream.
