Apple crumble

Apple crumble

Sticky sweet apples with a crunchy topping served with creamy, smooth ice cream - this apple crumble's as good as any your mum makes!

Serves: 6-8

What you need:

For the filling:

  • 8-10 Cox's orange pippins, peeled, cored and sliced into chunks
  • 60g butter
  • ½ teaspoon of mixed spice
  • 2 dessert spoons Demerara sugar

For the crumble:

  • 100g plain flour
  • 100g medium oatmeal
  • 100g Demerara sugar
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 150g softened butter

What you do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c. Put the apples in an ovenproof dish and dice the butter roughly over the surface. Sprinkle over the spice and sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the apples have softened. Remove from the oven and stir.
  2. To make the crumble, put the flour, oatmeal and sugar into a separate bowl with the cinnamon. Dice the butter into the bowl, then rub it evenly into the dry ingredients until it resembles rough breadcrumbs. Scatter evenly over the apples in the ovenproof dish and put back in the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apples are bubbling at the edges.
  3. Serve with a scoop Kelly's Cornish Clotted Cream ice cream.
