Apple Crumbles

While I am a huge fan of anything sweet, I am unfortunately not a dessert whiz when it comes to preparing them, and I have some serious limitations. However this recipe is so easy and tasty, it is one of my go to "satisfying desserts for dummies" when we have guests on short notice, or any time I have some urgent craving!! It is indeed THAT easy!! Highly reccomended to anyone! :-D

4-6 (depending on the size) firm apples
80g brown sugar
10g flour (1tbsp)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

50g flour
70g sugar
70g butter
30g walnuts or almonds

Peel the apples, remove the core and slice them. (roughly 1/4, then 1/4 each of them)
In a bowl mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together and thoroughly coat the apples. Spread the apples evenly in a baking dish (about 20cm diametre).
In a mixer/food processor chop (not grind) the nuts.
Soften the butter, then combine with the flour, sugar and nuts.
Spread the butter mixture over the apples, then bake at 180°C for 30minutes circa, or the topping is golden brown.

Serve at room temperature with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, or warm with custard.
