For the crumble

  • 125g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 50g light muscovado sugar
  • 3 tbsp jumbo oats
  • 25g flaked almond (or use other nuts if you like)
  • custard or ice cream, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Put everything for the apple layer, except the lemon juice and apples, into a bowl and microwave on High for 1½ mins until the butter has melted and the sugar is syrupy. Toss in the apples and lemon juice, then spoon into a medium baking dish, making sure the dried fruit is evenly distributed.

  2. Rub the flour and butter together, first into fine crumbs, then keep going until the mix forms bigger clumps, a bit like a rough biscuit dough. Stir in the sugar, oats and almonds. Scatter over the fruit, then cover with foil and bake for 1 hr, removing the foil for the final 30 mins, until golden and bubbling. Rest for 10 mins, then serve with custard or ice cream.

This dessert was absolutely delicious and the instructions easy to follow.
I ended up doubling up on the crumble, I think the baking dish I used was larger than recipe called for, so it was thinly spread.
Glad I did though because it was lovely and crumbly and there was easily enough for 8 portions :)
I also weighed the apples to 800 gms after they had been cored and peeled so there was lots of filling !!

Simply wonderful... but definitely decadent!

If you like a really crunchy crumble then this is for you. The apple underneath is lovely and gooey which is complemented by the chunky nutty crumble topping. Really easy to make and went down a storm.
