Crumbled with apples

Crumbled apples is a very simple dessert to make, you won't even need a rolling pin, because the dough is crumbled directly with your hands. In short, one of those recipes that I like to call "minimum expense, maximum yield", made of simple and genuine ingredients.

To prepare the apple crumble, start by taking care of the dough: in a bowl put 400 g of 00 flour, combine 180 g of soft butter into small pieces, 150 g of icing sugar, 1 pinch of salt, 10 g of vanilla yeast for desserts. , 2 medium eggs, the seeds of half a vanilla bean and the grated zest of half an untreated lemon.,

With your hands, mix all these ingredients, in order to obtain a crumbly mixture, which however remains sticky if you pinch it between your fingers.

Transfer the crumbly mix to the refrigerator and in the meantime take care of the two apples: after having peeled them, remove the core and reduce the pulp into not too large pieces, then put them in a large pan together with 60 g of granulated sugar and let it cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring often.

Once cooked, turn off the heat and add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, mix well and let the apples cool, then take out the crumbly dough.

In a game mold about 26 centimeters in diameter, previously lined with baking paper, spread just over half of the crumbly mixture, compacting it on the bottom with your hands.

For this kind of cakes I usually have a 26 cm diameter mold with a hinge like this which makes it very easy to remove the cake once it has cooled down.

Cover this layer of dough with the cooked apples, then crumble the remaining dough over the entire surface.

Bake your apple crumble in the preheated oven in static mode at 180 ° C for about 35-40 minutes or in any case until it is well cooked and golden on the surface.

How to prepare the apple crumble

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, butter softened at room temperature, yeast and an egg. Mix and work the ingredients well with your hands. Do not worry about forming a homogeneous dough: the mixture must remain crumbled (1).

Peel the apples, remove the core and cut them into cubes. Season the apples with sugar (2), lemon juice and a tablespoon of cinnamon in a pan. Stir the mixture and cook for 10 minutes over low heat. Turn off and let cool.

Pour half of the crumbled dough into a 24 cm diameter pan and form the base, applying pressure with your hands or the back of a spoon to compact it. Spread over the apple mixture and finally another layer of crumbled dough. Cook at 180 ° C for about 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool (3).

Once cold, cut the crumbled into slices and serve (4).

This is my elaboration of a famous apple pie in the blogosphere: Marina Braito's crumbled apple pie. It had been on my list for a couple of years & # 8220Recipes to try & # 8221 and I finally got into it. Here the recipe. It is a good and weird pie. In fact, these are two layers of shortcrust pastry & # 8220 not bound & # 8221, left in crumbs (without any liquid ingredients that you pile up), in half VERY THINLY sliced ​​apples and finally a layer of cream based on cream, eggs and sugar .
The apples in cooking compact, but remain creamy. A caramelized crust forms on top. It remains soft (it is a cake from saucer & fork), but not moist, almost like a very dry shortcrust pastry.

For my palate, it also has limits: it is too sweet, bordering on cloying, its softness does not fully convince me, the cream on top masks the taste of apples. I liked the basic idea though: that sweet crumb and those thinly sliced ​​apples. So I thought about developing the recipe and adapting it to my taste.

The crumb became less sweet and I increased the butter. I actually used the classic proportion of the English shortbread (3 parts of flour: 2 parts of butter: 1 part of sugar) and flavored it with vanilla.

The apples were sliced ​​into the veil with a mandolin and seasoned with lemon peel. I removed the cream from above and cooked everything for a VERY long time, at a low temperature. The result was an almost apple tart, with a soft-crumbly base and an intense apple flavor. Apples: I used cooking apples of unknown quality that were given to me, sour apples, firm and that keep cooking. In Italy maybe I would use Granny Smiths.

Almost crumbled apple tart
6-8 servings
A pan lined with parchment paper (below and along the circumference) of 20 cm in diameter / 4 cm in height

300 g of flour 00
200 g of cold salted butter in cubes
100 g of fine brown sugar (unrefined caster sugar)
a pinch of salt
Half a teaspoon of vanilla seed paste
4 medium-small apples (mine were the size of a tennis ball and it was enough, I think you can increase the quantity however)
the grated rind of a lemon

I heated the oven to 140 degrees ventilated (therefore: 160 degrees static oven), inserting a pan in the upper part of the oven.

For the crumb-crumble, everyone has their own method. I put flour, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla in the mixer and I turned ON-OFF until you get the classic crumbled mixture (large crumbs). I put the whole freezer in while I was preparing the fruit.
The apples were peeled, sliced ​​in a veil with the mandolin and seasoned with the lemon peel.
I poured 3/4 of the crumbs into the pan, without pressing them, I turned the apples over and finished with the remaining crumbs, without pressing them
I baked and cooked for an hour and a half. I let it cool before tasting it.

At the end of the meal I would say that a spoonful of creme fraiche would be fine. I tasted it with late afternoon coffee. It keeps well, covered, until the next day: let's say & # 8220frolla & # 8221 and if you like that consistency, I dare say it gets better. I prefer it in the day.

In this period I am experimenting with different apple pies and I piss everyone off about it. I tried a recipe from pastry chef Giovanni Prina (from Gennarino) and I didn't like it. I tried this classic English cake, actually from Dorset and I didn't like it (taken from a great book, this one). Today I made a very simple tart with the usual shortpastry base (therefore without sugar) and on top of it many, many sliced ​​apples. Cooked until the apples had a charred top edge (using this method). Taste tomorrow (I want to see how he behaves after a night's rest).

Now I want to try this, since I don't know how many years it has also been on my TO DO list (find the Italian version on Gennarino and the English version on the New York Times). In general I don't like moist apple pies very much, but curiosity prevails (of the monkey that I am, in terms of food & # 8230).
