“The humblest crumble ever, I’m mixing this one up with eating apples as well as the classic Bramley. So homely, so simple and so delicious – you’re going to love it. ”
- 1.5 kg mixed apples , (I like to use half Bramley)
- 150 g golden caster sugar
- 1 lemon
- 50 g unsalted butter , (cold)
- 100 g plain flour
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.
- Peel and core the apples, then quarter and chop into 3cm chunks.
- Place in a saucepan on a medium heat with 100g of sugar and a few fine gratings of lemon zest.
- Pop the lid on and cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples have softened. Remove the heat and leave to cool a little.
- Meanwhile, cube the butter and place in a mixing bowl with the flour. Rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs, then scrunch in the remaining sugar to add a little texture.
- Transfer the apples to a 25cm x 30cm baking dish and sprinkle over the crumble topping.
- Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and bubbling. Delicious served with vanilla custard.
