The perfect apple crumble

This crumbly, crunchy, crispy (insert your own C's here) apple magic is our new hands down favourite dessert. I tried it once before at my friend Nata's in Kyiv while visiting earlier in february, and was immediately sold. Nata's is a super baker: you might remember (and love) her pumpkin apple bake and of course world famous syrnyk. Today, finally, we made our own apple crumble by Nata's recipe, and can confirm that even without Nata's magical baking skills, it turned out f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. 

1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
150 g of cold butter
1 kg (or large 4-5) apples
Handful of raisins
2 tea spoons of cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180C. 
Chop the butter, combine it with flour and sugar. Mix well with a fork, ensure it's all moist and has a crumbly texture. Put the mixture in the fridge.
Cut the apples (i did not peel them) into small cubes and then place them into a medium baking (or casserole) dish. Add the cinnamon and raisins to apples. Spread crumble mix on top and bake for 30-45 min, or until the top is slightly browned.
Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.

Try it, enjoy and let us know what you think!
