you could try caramel crusted crumble. have seen on MB recently, but think it is from Jo Seagers sugar and spice

or normal apple crumble with a liquer flavoured custard

Yum - I love apple crumble! ! I think it is fine for a dinner party (in fact my kids would have it for any meal fancy or otherwise! ! They also love the leftovers - if any - for breakfast! )- we also love caramel apple dumplings too! ! Such a lovely Wintery treat warm apple puddings!

i luuuurve apple crumble too. my favourite pudding.
who cares if it's for a dinner party or not... . . it's an old favourite. i often have that at my dinner parties.

you could made some berries to the apples, that always nice. and you can also add oats to the crumble mix, but that can make it dry so make sure you've got heaps of butter in the mix.

yum, you've got me going now.

oh btw, i always use brown sugar in the crumb mix, makes it caramelly as others have said.

Nut Crumble

1 cupFlour
¾ cupBrown Sugar
100gSoft Butter
½ cupRolled Oats
½ cupRound wine Biscuits or similar (roughly crushed)
¼ cupPistachio Nuts (roughly chopped)
¼ cupWalnuts(roughly chopped)
¼ cupMacadamia Nuts (roughly chopped)

• Mix all ingredients
• Spread onto a lines tray
• Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once during cooking.
• Spread on top or hot roasted or stewed fruit, and cook for a further 20-30 minutes .
This is great! you can keep it in an air tight container for a while too. A little fancy with the nuts but delicious!
I like mine with custard.

coconut, nuts, in crumble mixture, marsopone (sp) berrys in with the apple, def brown sugar, we have had this in fancy restaurants, just nice taste to the topping is required

msfit1, there is absolutely nothing wrong with serving apple crumble for dessert, but if you really want a " flash " versionperhaps you would like the Apple Pecan Crisp recipe I posted in the Apple Desserts thread.

the above ideas sound very nice and for a dinner party I would cook in individual servings.

pgta, May 29, 7:05am
I would cook it anyway and don't invite your friend if it is not "fancy" enough for her

indy95, May 29, 7:06am
That's a good idea, beaker59, individual servings always have that extra " something " don't they ?

If I haveguests I add a tin of berrys to the apple and top with the usual crumb mixture, whipped cream to go with it.

buckyboy, Jun 7, 8:54pm
if you use TIN apples, just check the label to see country of origin! ! I used to use tin apples, now I use fresh apples (mrs)

jayc14, Jun 7, 9:13pm
Nigella's Jumbleberrry Crumble is delicious. I make double the topping and keep in freezer.

indy95 has a nice apple pecan crisp recipe on the apple desserts thread below.

Went to a luncheon where the apple crumbles were served individually. They had lined muffin tins with flakey pastry, so they are about 2cm above the muffin tin, and put in the apple mixture and the crumble on top, then cooked the usual way. They did enough for about 40 people. Served on a plate with ice cream and whipped cream and a raspberry sauce. You could even make it apple and feijoa or apple and tamarillo.

My favourite crumble topping recipe would have to be Rosemary Schregar's one. It is divine, think from memory it uses hazelnuts but I use ground almonds instead. Makes heaps which you can put into a container and either freeze until required or refrigerate.
I dont have quantities written down handy, usually just go to her website and jot down amounts. It uses flour, sugar, butter and I think rolled oats as well as the almonds.

cgvl, Jun 8, 9:20pm
Here you go Rosemary Shregars Crumble mix.
110g butter
80g plain flour
50g rolled oats
30g hazelnuts or almonds
80g brown sugar

Put butter and flour into food processor and process until like breadcrumbs. Add oats, nuts and sugar and pulse until mixed.
Do not overmix otherwise it will go like pastry.
