Crumble topping
  1. Start by preparing the crumble topping. In a bowl, combine together flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. 

  2. Melt the butter in a cast iron pan and once melted add it to the flour mixture. Using a fork just mix everything together and keep aside.

  3. For the apples: Start by chopping them into even thickness. Add it to the same pan in which you had melted the butter.

  4. Top with everything else - sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, cardamom, salt and lemon juice. Mix well and put it over med-low heat.

  5. Combine everything until it thickens a bit around 5-6 mins. You still want the apples to retain their shape.

  6. Top with the prepared crumble topping generously and put it in a preheated oven of 180°C for 20-25 mins until the crumble crisps up and turns golden brown.

  7. Serve warm with ice-cream or whipped cream
