How do you know when a crumble is done?
Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes. The apple layer should be bubbling and the surface of the crumble should be an even medium golden brown. If you are using a shallower, slightly larger baking pan like a 9×9, watch it closely, the crumble may be done in 5 or 10 minutes less time.
How do you soften crumble topping?
But if you feel your topping is still too dry and crumbly, (even for a crumble,) add a bit more melted butter, a tablespoon at a time.
Does crumble need to be cooked?
Crumble requires more baking time than you think; the top should be brown and the filling should be bubbling. In order to thicken properly, the cornstarch in the filling must boil, which is why bubbling is a key indicator for doneness.
How do I brown the top of my crumble?
Rub the butter into the flour to make a light breadcrumb texture. Do not overwork it or the crumble will become heavy. Add in the demerara sugar until combined and spread over the fruit until completely covered. Bake for 35-50 mins until golden brown and bubbling, and the fruit is tender.
Why is my crumble topping not crunchy?
The main reason your crumble topping isn’t crunchy is probably because you haven’t used Demerara sugar. Although, it could also be that you’ve got your topping ingredient quantities wrong: either too much or not enough flour and butter alongside the sugar. You’ve not used ingredients that add crunch.
What’s the difference between a crisp and a crumble?
Crumbles and Crisps A crumble is a dish of baked fresh fruit, with a streusel crumb topping. Like a crumble, a crisp is a baked fresh fruit dessert, but the streusel topping is less dense and typically includes oats. The oats will crisp up during baking, while crumble toppings stay more dense and cakey.
Why does my crumble sink?

The most common cause for a melted crumb topping is too much butter. Cold or melted, it doesn’t take much butter to turn the flour and sugar into crumbs. Mix the butter into the dry ingredients thoroughly, until the entire mixture is made up of small clumps, to ensure good results.
How do you keep streusel topping crunchy?
