4 cups flour
1⅓ cups sugar
2 sticks butter, melted
4 Tbsp. butter
4 cups apples, peeled and chopped
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place flour, sugar and melted butter in a large bowl and mix well. Set aside half of the “crumble” mixture. Press the remaining half into the base of an 8×8-inch cake pan lined with foil. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until firm. Remove from the fridge and cook for 20 minutes or until a light golden brown. Set aside.
Place 4 tablespoons butter, apples, sugar, nutmeg and raisins in a saucepan over high heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for 2–3 minutes or until the apples are soft and the liquid has evaporated. Spoon the filling over the cooled baked base in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture over the apples and cook in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool, and cut into slices to serve.
