Ingredients

  • For the crumble:
  • 300g/10½oz plain flour, sieved
  • pinch of salt
  • 175g/6oz brown sugar
  • 200g/7oz unsalted butter at room temperature, cubed, plus a little for greasing
  • For the filling:
  • 450g/1lb apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1cm/½in pieces
  • 50g/2oz brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Cooking guidelines

Preheat the oven to 180C. Place the flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.

Butter a 24 cm ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.

Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling. Serve with thick cream or custard.
