Campfire easy apple crumble - sweet and crunchy

This easy apple crumble can be prepared while you are sitting at a campfire. There is nothing better than a sweet dessert after diner.

We had an opportunity to make it during our trip to the northernmost tip of Australia – Cape York. Our campsite was 10 km off Wujal Wujal at a slow-flowing creek on the edge of the rainforest. There was nobody around, only us and our imagination.

  1. Peel apples and cut them into smaller pieces.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the apples.

3. Mix quickly 4 tablespoons of flour with 4 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cold butter with your fingers. After that, the toping that is prepared should be like wet sand.

6. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar on apples, add cinnamon and vanilla.

7. Mix sugar with cinnamon and apples.  Sprinkle topping and cover the Dutch oven. Set it on charcoals.

8. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. We rotated the dutch oven every 15 minutes to prevent burn on one side. 

9. Yes, that’s golden brown 🙂
