My husband does really LOVE my austrian special sweet backery. BUT, there is one thing he claims the americans have done pretty well: The Apple Crumble! Now during apple season we do have one nearly every 3rd day. Also because it is just too simple:
1) 5 big sour apples
> wash them, cut them in little cubes and put a bit lemon juice on top (and mix grated nuts among it), spread it in the baking dish
2) mix 100g butter and 100g brown sugar together with 175g flour (and a bit of cinnamon)
> with the mixer and crumble it over the apples
3) backing at 200° degrees for 30 minutes
4) afterwords served with vanilla ice cream, cherries or blackberrys or something like that – the hotter the better!
And be quick, because if you start "crumbling" suddenly there are only crumbles left!
Bon appetit! And happy birthday grandma!
