Recipe for :

Cider and Apple Crumble
This recipe is from a new source - Chez Fred alias Frederic Durand. Fred, like me is a keen amateur who loves to cook and we have agreed to exchange some of our recipes. The recipes I will concentrate on from Chez Fred are his French ones but there are recipes from all over the world which he is adding to all the time.


1 Kg of Apples
125 g. of Caster Sugar
50 g. of Brown Sugar
150 g. of Flour
80 g. of softened Butter
1/2 Liter of Cider
1 Pinch of Cinamon powder
1 Pinch of Salt 

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 190° C.
  2. Peal and cut the apples in quarters.
  3. Put the apples in the cider for three hours.
  4. Put butter in six little bowls (which can go in the oven) and put the apples without the cider, adding the cinamon and the brown sugar.
  5. In a big bowl, miw the softened butter, the flour, the sugar and the salt.
  6. Work on the pastry until it becomes granular and goes in crumbs.
  7. Put this on the apples.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes until the surface becomes light brown and crusty.
  9. Serve lukewarm and enjoy.

Serves 6

Fred's advice :

  • You can serve custard or cream with the crumble.
  • You can replace the apples by bananas, pears or pineapple.
  • You can drink a good cold cider.
