Fruity Crumble Slice

I'm currently experiencing a slow Sunday.  The weather is warm and has put me into a sleepy and slow state.  I feel like this is the perfect home-made treat to nibble on with friends and family who pass by.

Ingredients

3/4 cup self-raising flour
3/4 cup plain flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
200g unsalted butter
50g unsalted butter, extra, for crumble
3/4 cup soft brown sugar
410g tinned pie apples
40g rolled oats
40g sultanas
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (fan-forced) and grease and line a 27 x 18cm shallow rectangular baking tin.  In a bowl, sift the flours and combine; add the coconut.  Combine 200g of butter along with the sugar in a saucepan, on low heat until the butter melts.  Remove from heat and pour into the flour mixture.  Using a wooden spoon, stir until well combined.  Reserve 1 cup of the mixture.  Press the remaining mixture into the prepared tin.  It may look as though you don't have enough, but it will press out to form a thin base. Bake for 10 minutes and leave to cool completely.  Spread the apple pieces (you can chop them smaller if needed) over the base.  The base won't be entirely covered (depending on your apple chunk size).  Combine the reserved 1 cup mixture with the 50g of butter, the oats and the sultanas.  Using your fingertips, crumble this mixture over the apple. Dust with cinnamon.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until crumble is golden brown.  Cool, lift from tin, and cut into squares.  Store for 2 days in container, or leave in fridge and watch it disappear quickly.  Serve alone as a slice; or warm it up and eat along with custard.

  2. My this looks good. This might have to be on the menu for the kids tomorrow, but not for me. I am dieting --- Europe to see in the summer and I do want to buy some lovely clothes, what an incentive. x

  14. This crumble is one of the tastiest I have ever seen. I love the idea that you added coconut. That must give it such a nice flavor. I had to Google what sultanas were..lol They sound good in there too:)

  17. Nunca he probado el crumble, lo he visto en varias ocasiones, pero nunca una porción.
    Se ve absolutamente delicioso. Ideal para un desayuno o una merienda de domingo.

    I have never tried the crumble, I saw several times, but never a portion.
    It looks absolutely delicious. Ideal for breakfast or a snack on Sunday.

  18. Quelle chance qu'il fasse aussi chaud chez toi.
    Ici, froid et hiver sont de rigueur.
    J'aime ta version du crumble aux pommes. Il y a plus de choses et plus de saveurs.
    A très bientôt.

  26. I totally know what you mean - when it's warm you just want to sit back and eat fruit crumble :) I'm so jealous of your weather! It's so cold over here - the more reason to bake and eat crumble I guess!

  27. Yum yum yum I love crumbles! Yours looks perfect. Its almost too hot to bake, but sitting and snacking on sweet treats is a perfect way to spend the time.

  28. Hello Brittany, You're so right, that looks like everything a perfect treat should be. This is one that I'll keep in the que for when I'm not dieting for sure. I don't make sweets often, and when I do, I like it to be simple and fabulous. This fits the bill.

    Have a terrific week and thanks so much for stopping at my blog last week. You're awesome.
