Mumseys' Apple Crumble

With the cooler nights coming in we seem to enjoy a warm pudding served with cream or vanilla ice cream.
One such recipe is one I have made for years and so it is made just off the top of my head.
My youngest daughter was helping with tea the other night and wanted to make it so I had to give her instructions as she went along and it is so easy to make...I thought I would blog it for the rest of the cherubs should they need it.

About 5 or 6 apples
50 grams butter
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of soft brown sugar
1 cup of rolled oats (but you could use crushed weetbix)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cook the apples in the oven dish that you are going to make the pudding in if it is microwave safe. Cook in the mocrowave for about 6 minutes on high with a little water and covered. (Or you can stew them on the stove with more water, but drain most of the water off when placing in the pudding dish when they are done. You don't want a lot of water or the topping will get soggy.)
Melt the butter in a bowl or pot and add the other ingredients mixing well to combine.
Sprinkle over the apple and bake at 180C for about 20 minutes until the topping is lightly golden.

This is excellent for popping in the oven after a casserole or roast and good for using up old apples or ones that are a bit marked etc. We used some of the windfalls from our apple tree
