Baileys Apple Crumble



The first time I tasted apple crumble, I was hooked. It's a simple nutritious dessert that even has fruit in it! It is considered as a winter dessert and how fitting it is to have a warm bite of apple and crumbly oats in your mouth.

I chose to do a version with Baileys this time round. Baileys was one of the first liquor that I actually do like. Especially when it is on the rocks. Ever since my body rejects lactose, I rarely tasted it. I can still take some, just not the whole shot. By incorporating some in this dessert, it allowed me to enjoy the flavour of such a rich drink.

I kept it simple- choosing to caramelized the apples with brown sugar and baileys. Then using the rubbing in method, I rubbed some low fat spread/margarine into some flour, oats and mixed fruit. Enough dessert for two. A sweet ending to a busy week.



Baileys Apple Crumble (Serves 2)
1 green apple sliced thinly
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of baileys

1/4 cup of plain flour
75 grams of spread
1/4 cup of oats
1/4 cup of mixed fruits
1/2 tsp of cinnamon

Preheat Oven to 180C.
Melt sugar. Add apple and baileys. Caramalised for around 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, rub spread into flour. Mix with oats, mixed fruits and cinnamon.

Spoon apple mixture into ramekins. Top it with the oat mixture. Bake for 20 minutes.
