Apple Crumble Recipe

Nearly all aussies love good old apple crumble and there are a few variations on how to make this lovely pudding. My mum mainly made apple pies for dad but if she didn't have enough time to make pastry and roll it out, she would make apple crumble. I have never been a great pastry lover so I prefer crumble to pie anyway. I find that I am making more and more of good old fashioned recipes now and have to admit to preferring them to the pre-packaged ones in the markets. This is a great pudding to serve in winter time with some hot home made custard poured over it or in summer just serve with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.


4 - 6 granny smith apples
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice or water
couple of whole cloves


2 tablespoons coconut
1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
60g butter - chopped


Peel and core apples then slice up and place in large saucepan. Add lemon juice (or water), sugar and cloves and cook on top of stove until soft but not mushy. Pour into a suitable ovenproof dish.
Place all crumble ingredients together in a large bowl and mix through with your hands until butter is mixed through and all ingredients are well combined. Sprinkle over the top of apples. Bake in a moderate oven of 170C for fan forced and 180 for normal electric oven, for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and serve either hot or cold.

Low Calorie Pancake Recipe

When I am watching my weight, I am always on the lookout for recipes that won't affect my program or diet. About 25 years ago, I was given this recipe by a fellow weight watcher and although different to the usual pancake recipe, I have made these often and at least I know that they are perfectly legal to eat. I often grate an apple on top of them as I love the sweet slightly tarty flavour it gives.


1 slice bread
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
few drops vanilla essence
sweetener to taste - I use Splenda


Put bread in a blender and blend for a couple of seconds. Add other ingredients and blend together until you get a nice smooth mixture. Put in spoonfuls into hot non-stick pan and cook for a minute or two on one side, then turn over to do other side. Makes about 6 - 8 pancakes. Top with strawberries or other fruit.
