Granny Smith or Fuji

My sister brought a big bag of Granny Smith green apples (grade 4139) for me today. It is not the grade that I usually buy. The size is much smaller. Pretty cute.


When I bake apples, I tend to opt for Granny Smith green apples. One of the reason that I know is that it gives a better texture and taste. Some bakers also used Gala apples. With the influx of Fuji apples and the prices are getting cheaper (from China) as compared to the past.

Perhaps, I might explore using Fuji apples one of these days. Here is my Apple Crumble using Granny Smith green apples.

Verdict: Getting better each time.


What you need:

675g apples
80g soft brown sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon coz we prefer it stronger taste


225g plain flour
115g butter
50g caster sugar


Peel, core and slice apples and place in dish, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Place flour in a bowl and rub butter into flour, stir in sugar

Sprinkle crumble mix evenly over apples.

Bake fan oven 160ºC/electric oven 180ºC for 30 - 40 minutes until lightly golden on top.

Serve with custard or ice-cream
