Apple Crumble With Tea Masala Spices

Apple Crumble With Tea Masala Spices created by ImPat

I tried this crumble variation with tea masala spices and this came out really delicious. You can try with your favorite spices mix or with my Recipe #448067 mix (quantity to taste). What’s the difference between a British crumble and an American crisp? According to http://www.fromkarenskitchen.com/tips/types_of_cobblers.php this is the answer: The traditional crumble topping contains flour, sugar, and butter but may also include oats, nuts, and spices. As more of these ingredients are added, the crumble becomes even more similar to a crisp.

    Oh, this was gooooood! I used Washington-grown apples and Oregon made butter. The apples were very thinly sliced (my preference). I tested with homemade ras el hanout but next time I will try your spice mix recipe. The crumble was cut down to fit in a 5 1/2" cast iron skillet-plenty for three of us. I topped with freshly whipped cream, too! Pears would be a delicious substitute for the apples or in combination as would nectarines/peaches. Reviewed for Make My Recipe Downunder #84 January 2014. Thank you!

    Have to say one of the best apple crumble recipes I have had - the only change I made was after a suggestion from the DH was to give the oats a bit of a blitz in the food processor as his big against this type of crumble was the oats being chunky and often being burnt and have to say it worked a treat and even though I scaled this back for 3 serves there was enough for 4 so maybe the DH may taste and change his mind about about apple crumble with oats. Thank you awalde, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe n#78 July 2013.

    Yummy! Like other reviewers, I made your Recipe#448067 to use in this delicious crumble! I only made half the recipe, which was perfect since there are no leftover "temptations"! Oh, and used more of the spice than called for (it's so tasty!!!). Thanks for posting!
