Student's Apple Crumble

As I said before, cook to impress.  This is easy and homely. Great with supermarket basic instant custard, ice-cream, or squirty cream.

Ingredients
2 cooking apples (makes enough for 4 people)
2 tablespoons (serving spoons) water
4 oz flour (plain or self-raising)
2 oz butter or hard margarine eg Stork
1 oz + 2 oz normal granulated sugar (for the apple and the crumble respectively)

Equipment
Mixing bowl
Casserole (medium)

Method

This needs to be done in an oven, not a microwave.  Turn on at 220 deg Celsius to preheat.
  1. Make crumble by cutting fat into little pieces then rubbing into the flour with your fingertips, so it's like breadcrumbs.  If you have a pastry blender, use it.  (I was married 24 years before I got mine ...)
  2. Stir in the 2 oz sugar.
  3. Set aside while you peel and slice apples.
  4. Put apples in casserole with water and the 1 oz sugar.  Stir in sugar to disperse.
  5. Pour crumble mix over apples - try to keep it fairly even.
  6. Bake in pre-heated oven for 45 mins or until browned on top.
  7. Save recipe to your Diigo social bookmarking account.

what do you mean, custard or ice cream or cream? That's a bit mean. All three at least!! (What a great recipe, I'm very tempted to try it myself. Is it OK for people who aren't studentz??)
