Recipe video above. A filling of tender, cinnamon laced apples topped with a nubbly crunchy, golden topping. You'll love how this Apple Crumble isn't overly sweet, and how the filling is syrupy and jammy, rather than watery or dry. The smell when this is cooking is everything! SWEETNESS - see Note 4.

2 lb / 1kgGranny Smith Apples( green apples), weight before peeling
Place apple in a bowl. Sprinkle with flour, sugar and cinnamon, then pour over lemon juice. Toss, then spread out evenly in a 1.5 litre/1.5 quart baking dish.
Place Topping ingredients in a bowl. Mix until clumps form, like wet sand (see video). Spread over the apples, crumbling with fingers if required to get that crumbly topping.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove, cover loosely with foil to keep warm and let stand for 10 minutes before serving (let's the apple filling come together).
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
1. Weight is BEFORE peeling and coring. I like making this with Granny Smith apples because they are slightly tart. You can use any apples you want, or even pears.Peaches work too but you can cut back on the sugar a bit. This recipe is also great for any type of berries.Whatever you use, don't omit the sugar completely because it's part of how the filling becomes a bit jammy rather than watery.2. Weights - This recipe is quite forgiving / difference in cup measures are relative so it works whether using US cups or Imperial cups (i.e. what 99% of the rest of the world uses). It won't work with Japanese cups (which are smaller) so please use the weight measures provided.3. To make ahead, prepare recipe up to just before crumbling topping on top. Cover topping with cling wrap (refrigerate if it's hot where you are) then crumble over just before baking.4. SWEETNESS: A few readers have said they find this too sweet for their taste. I don't have an overly sweet tooth, and love this as is. If you like less sweet things, reduce the sugar in the topping down to as low as 1/2 cup. It's best to keep sugar in Filling as is so the syrup consistency isn't affected. Also, use green apples - they are less sweet than others.5. Nutrition per serving, assuming this serves 8, excludes ice cream.Originally posted April 2016, updated with new commentary, recipe video and fresh new photos. No change to recipe!
