Apple crumble
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
  2. Mix the white flour, oatmeal, sugar, salt and cinnamon and cardamom.
  3. Crumble to cold diced butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  4. Spread the crumble mixture on a tray lined with baking paper and bake for 15 min or until cooked. Remove the crumbles from the oven.
  5. Cut the apples in half and remove the centre to create an indent.
  6. Spread the crumble mixture on top of the apple.
  7. Bake the apples with the crumble for 15 min or until the apples are warm but still holding their shape.
  1. Pour the custard on the plate. Mix the red jam with some hot water to loosen it and pipe a line around the place. Insert the tip of a skewer or a knife and drag it outwards from the centre to create a spider web pattern.
  2. Place the baked apple in the centre and serve.
Stuff to know
It is possible to make the custard and to bake crumble topping ahead of time. Store in the fridge until needed.
Since the crumble topping is already cooked, the apple doesn't need much oven time.
Ideally, use a tart apple like a granny smith to have a proper apple flavour.
