For the topping

For the filling


  • STEP 1

    Put all the topping ingredients and a pinch of sea salt in a bowl and rub together with your fingers until combined into a crumb-like texture – this can also be done in a food processor. Chill until needed. Will keep chilled for up to two days.

  • STEP 2

    Toss the apples with the sugar and lemon zest and juice until evenly coated, and tip into a 23cm round baking dish that’s at least 5cm deep, or a 20cm square dish. Flatten down with your hand and scatter over the topping. Will keep covered and chilled for a day.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/ gas 5. Sit the crisp on a baking tray and bake for 40 mins until the topping is a deep golden and the fruit is bubbling at the edges. Leave to cool for 10 mins, then serve with ice cream or custard.
