Easy Apple Crumble

WE PARTNERED WITH HARRY FROM FIRE TO FORK TO BRING YOU A SERIES OF DELICIOUS CAMP KITCHEN COOKING RECIPES

I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so when I go to the effort of making a dessert, I want it to have all the good bits—sweet, salty, crunchy, hot and cold all at the same time and this one nails it. It’s also not very difficult and can even be pre-prepared and heated up after dinner.

I decided to use my Biolite Camp Stove for this one because I only need one pan on the heat at a time. You can of course substitute this with a charcoal pit or a simple gas cooker. I just really love using my little wood stove.

Serves: 2 

COOK TIME: AROUND 25 MIN

INGREDIENTS


  • 1 pink lady and 2 granny smith apples
  • 25g self-raising flour
  • 130g butter
  • 25g dark brown sugar
  • 20g chipped coconut
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Optional: ice-cream or thickened cream

METHOD


1. CRUMBLE

  • Melt 30g butter in a pan and rub in the self-raising flour, a big pinch of salt and 50g brown sugar (use a spoon or spatula, not a stick like me (I couldn’t find my spoon!).
  • Add the coconut and almonds and mix together for 2 minutes.
  • Take off the heat and let the mix harden. 

2. APPLES

  • Dice apples and toss in lemon juice
  • Melt 100g butter, add salt and apples and cook until granny smiths are tender but still hold their shape. The pink ladies will turn to mush.
  • Add some brown sugar to taste, just enough to enhance the apple flavour (it should still be a bit tart).
  • Spoon your apples in to a cup and sprinkle the crumble mixture on top, serve with ice-cream or fresh cream.

    Nice recipe. Sounds great.
    Would be great of your crew provided an isolated ‘recipe card’ (like many cooking sites do), so one can capture the recipe without having the play the copy-and-paste game within’ all the photos, adds and extraneous links. I was excited at first to check this recipe out and add it to my camp collection, but am left pretty non-plused.
    My apologies if I’m missing such a link somewhere. If that exists, maybe it could be a little more obvious?
    Happiness and good health to all there!

    Sounds delicious, little challenging for backpacking.
    I have a simpler version:
    At home- add 1 cup of dried apple slices, 1/2 c. Craisens, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 chopped walnuts, 1 t. Cinnamon to ziplock bag. Separate ziplock bag add 1 c. Of your favorite gronola.
    In camp- place apple mixture in cooking pot, soak with hot water while preparing dinner, after dinner warm apple mixture add dalop of margerine, stir, top with gronola For a gourmet touch add a couple T. Of bourbon before adding gronola, bring dream whip in ziplock, with required powdered milk, add water to ziplock at camp, chill in snowbank or cold stream, top each portion with dream whip garnish with dash of cinnamon. You can make Fruits of the Forest Crisp by adding other dried fruits like blueberries and blackberries. If you’re lucky enough add fresh berries like thimble berries
