Super-Simple Spiced Apple Crumble recipe is so quick and easy to make it means you can even enjoy a luscious and delicious dessert midweek. In this recipe, I use the spicy sweetness of ground Mace and Cinnamon in both the stewed apple mix and the crumble on top. I also incorporate rolled oats into the crumble mix to add texture and crunch and cook it in a moderate oven until it becomes golden, crisp and oozing.

Spices used in this recipe
Mace is the outer membrane of the nutmeg seed and has a milder flavour than Nutmeg, making it ideal to use in shellfish and seafood. Our product has been dried and finely ground and it has a warm, sweet and spicy flavour with a reddish-orange colour. It is commonly used in Indian, Asian and European cuisines.
Cinnamon Ground – Cassia Vera
Cinnamon Ground is the ground powder form of the Cassia quills . It is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cassia vera. Cinnamon is used in both sweet and savoury foods to impart a warm spice flavour. In the Middle East it is commonly paired with meats such as chicken and lamb. The term ‘cinnamon’ also refers to its mid-brown colour.$3.45
Preheat your oven to 200c degrees. Peel and core your apples, then cut into 2cm wedges.
Place your apple wedges in a saucepan over medium heat along with 100g of your sugar, 1tsp mace, 1tsp cinnamon, and 25g butter. Place the lid on and cook on medium for 7-8 minutes, or until the apples are nice and soft and starting to become jammy. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
Cube your remaining butter and place it in a bowl with your flour. Rub together until a crumb-like mix begins to form. Add in your remaining sugar, cinnamon, mace, and your rolled oats and mix together well with your hands.
Pour your stewed apples into a deep baking dish, cover with your crumble mix, and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crumble on top is golden, and inside is bubbling. Serve with cream or ice cream and enjoy!
