Salty Recipes is all the rage at the moment. Today we will try – Salted Caramel Apple Crumble!
Crumbly with a slight chew and enough spice to hit the taste buds, our special crumble will keep you and your guests coming back for more.
When we think of crumbles we tend to think of the cold winter nights (could be any night in Scotland to be fair), or even for the famous family Sunday roast, it is the best comfort food to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. So why share this recipe in the summer? Simple it is so good, and you can cool things down with a helping of creamy ice cream (Cornish clotted ice cream yum!).
It’s a simple pudding that can be whipped up and the ingredients are not that hard to come by. We start with our main ingredient, the apple, there are so many varieties to pick from but I chose Granny Smith’s just because I love the tang and extra sweetness they bring, I feel it really does balance out the whole recipe. If you wanted you could substitute with another type of apple like Bramleys, or even create a different experience with another fruit such as rhubarb.
The sauce I use for the recipe is a really sweet creamy caramel sauce so you don’t have to make caramel which is a total nightmare unless you can get the sweet spot, very hard not to burn. As for the salted part you can either add one teaspoon when making the sauce or you can just do as I do and add as you layer this bad boy.
The proof is in the crumble, basically the crumble is how you know if it’s good or not, too crumbly and it will fall all over the place, and if it’s too doughy it will taste yuck. There are loads of tips for creating the perfect crumble mix, such as pre-cooking the crumble or even adding some biscuits to the crumble. For today I am a being a plain Jane and sticking to just the basics, this will give you a chewy but irresistible topping.
Do not forget these recipes during the summer months as a dollop of ice-cream or a lashing of double cream will cool the dessert down. Just enjoy the sweet and salty treat, I’m sure your dinner guests will love this one.
