One of my closest friends works in the rehabilitation unit of our local hospital. Recently she put in a lot of time and effort to put together a recipe book to raise funds for the rehab unit and the patients. The book has loads of great, quick and easy recipes mainly designed for the patients who have mostly suffered from stokes or been involved in serious accidents, for when they leave hospital and have to cook for themselves again.
I know pretty much everyone has a really easy apple crumble recipe, but it is one of my favourites and I have made two apple crumbles for the weekend....
~ 4-6 cooking apples
~ 1/2 cup of sugar
~ 1/3 cup of water
~ 1 cup of plain flour
~ 3 dessertspoon brown sugar
~ 3 dessertspoon coconut
~ 3 dessertspoon parve butter/margarine
Preheat oven to 180C. Peel core and slice apples. Place apples in a saucepan with sugar and water. Simmer gently until soft. Allow to cool then pour into a pie or casserole dish. Place flour in a bowl and using your fingertips rub in butter. Add sugar and coconut and mix well. Sprinkle lightly over the top of the apples and bake until lightly browned on top.
I like to include a sprinkle of cinnamon in the apple filling too.
