That’s it, they’re gone, my 600 little precious macaroons are gone to be eaten very soon.
It was quite hard work but I thought it would be much more effort.
So now, it’s back to business as usual, the weekly order for a lovely shop in Northampton, St.Giles cheese.
Like I’m not too busy this week, I’ve got time to share a recipe! I’m not going to tell you the macaroon one mainly because it takes ages to make and because it’s a quite difficult recipe to explain. You can of course find a macaroon recipe on other websites.
So here’s my version of the best ever apple crumble. It’s a bit strange for me because it’s a proper British pudding and I’m French but I love to make it for my greedy boyfriend. Anyway, the recipe…
You’ll need (for 4 people):
– About 4 large apples
– 150g of sugar (with demerara, it’s better I find)
– 100g of plain flour
– 100g of butter
– A good pinch of cinnamon
First, peel and cut the apples into medium pieces.
Melt 20g of butter in a large pan.
When it’s all melted, add 50g of the sugar and stir it until you’ve got a nice caramel (don’t burn it!!!!!) it’s going to take about 3 min.
Add the apples and cinnamon and leave them to cook about 3 min in this lovely caramel and stir a few times. Then pour the apples into an oven tin.
Into a bowl, pour the flour and the rest of the sugar. Mix it together.
Melt the rest of the butter and pour it into the flour and sugar mixture. Mix it up with a fork until you obtain a nice crumble topping (if the mixture is too floury, add some more butter, add flour if the mixture looks too moist).
Put the mixture on the top of the apples and bake for 30 min at 180°C, until the top is golden.
Let it cool down a bit (if you can wait) and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!
