Crumble de Manzana

The first time I tried a Crumble, I was 18 and I was with a foster family in England. They were really good cooks and made me a rhubarb crumble. I didn’t know what on Earth was “a rhubarb” but I enjoyed it so much, I couldn’t come back to Spain without knowing more.

The problem here is what apple should we choose. Well, when baking an apple pie I have tried Granny Smith, Fuji, Royal Gala and Golden. My best results came from using Royal Gala and Golden, specially last one.

I never use Reineta, even when my mum is a public defender of it. Personally, I don’t like the taste and texture but a lot of people does and it’s easy to cook so go ahead if you want to use Reineta.

Don’t forget to serve the crumble warm and with a spoon of ice cream. Do it, you won’t regret it.

(English) Apple Crumble

I use to choose vanilla & caramel with Pecan nuts ice cream, but a vanilla solo ice cream it's fine too.
