Apple Crumble

What shall I do with loads of apples in my fridge?

Apple Crumble!
The recipe is as follow...
Ingredients (serve 4)

Melted butter, to grease
115g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
180g butter, chilled, cubed
80g brown sugar
35g rolled oats
4 (about 210g each) golden delicious apples
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tbs caster sugar
Double cream or vanilla ice-cream, to serve

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Brush an ovenproof dish with the melted butter to grease

  2. Combine the flour and 1 tsp of the cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the brown sugar and oats.

  3. Core and cube the apples. Place the apple cubes in the greased dish, pour over the lemon juice and toss well to coat. Combine the caster sugar and remaining cinnamon, and sprinkle over the apples. Toss well to combine. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the top to completely cover the apples.

  4. Place the dish in preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden and the apples are tender when tested with a skewer but still hold their shape.

  5. Serve warm with double cream or ice-cream.
