Apple & apricot crumble cake

This is a lovely fruity pudding. If you like sponge cake and if you like crumbles then WOW this is for you! You can add any fruit you like. I used to make this when my kids who are now in their 30’s were young. I have added blackberries, strawberries, raspberries & blueberries before but always accompanying apple. Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients:

For the sponge:

  • 2 cooking apples
  • 100g softened butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 280g SR flour
  • 125 ml milk
  • can apricots
  • 1 egg

For the crumble:

  • 50g butter
  • 100g SR flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method:

Preheat the oven 10 160°c/FAN 160°/GAS 4 and grease a large ovenproof dish.

Start by making the crumble by dicing the butter and adding it to the flour sugar & cinnamon. Rub the butter in until it resembles breadcrumbs and set aside.

Peel core & thinly slice the apples and drain the juice from the apricots.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, beat well. Add the flour and then finally the milk and beat again for about a minute.

Add the chopped up fruit and gently stir this in then turn the mixture into the dish.

Bake for 10 minutes until the batter has just started to cook and remove from the oven and sprinkle the crumble evenly all over the top before placing it back in the oven.

Bake for another 30 – 35 minutes or until an inserted knife blade comes out clean and the crumble is golden brown.

Can be served with ice cream, cream, custard or just as it is.
