A luscious desert best served with a good dollop of custard. Good for warming you up on cold winter nights. A personal favourite of mine.

The recipe says to use sugar in the crumble topping, but then doesn't say to add it, and also doesn't give any idea how much water to use when making the apple filling.

I enjoyed this recipe tonight with one change, I put the crumble mixture in the oven to toast before spreading over the apples; A lovely crunchy topping. Thanks.

Please please please put cinammon and raisins in next time, with brown sugar. This was really yummy but just try it like that and see how you like it. Trust me because remember how I changed your mind about mushrooms? (See my mushroom risotto) :-) Thanks :-P
