Go-to dessert…

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp is my go-to dessert. It’s cheap, it’s quick and easy to make, you can switch out the fruit for seasonal fruit, and it’s hugely popular. Apple mixed with other fruit is also good – feijoa and apple or blackberry and apple are great, pears, plums, tamarillos, tinned peaches or tinned anything I guess! If it’s already sweetened in the can, you won’t need to add any extra sugar.

Apple Crisp

4 cups of sliced apple

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup Self Raising Flour

1/2 cup Sugar

1 egg

75 grams butter


Heat oven to 160C

Slice the apples into a pie dish. Sprinkle with the brown sugar.

In a bowl mix the flour and sugar. Add the egg and mix with a fork. This makes quite a lumpy mixture.

Pour this over the top of the apples.

Melt the butter, and pour over the top of the pudding.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

It’s nice with ice-cream, but it’s fine with just a trickle of milk to cool down the hot apple. Left-overs seem to disappear without even the benefit of being heated so it must be nice cold!
