    Grown in temperate regions, apples are one of the most widely cultivated tree fruits. There are…

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the apples into a saucepan with a splash of water, cover, then cook over a high heat for 4-5 mins, stirring now and then until just soft. Stir in 3 tbsp of the caramel, then tip into small ovenproof dishes. Dot small spoonfuls of caramel cream over the apples until only 1 tbsp is left.

  2. Mix the flour and oats together, then rub in the butter with your fingers until you have a crumbly mixture. Stir in the remaining caramel, then scatter over the apples. Bake for 18-20 mins until golden and crisp on top.

I used Raymond Blanc's recipe for the crumble topping but I'm giving full marks for the filling!

Definitely very glad I added more crumble, but I absolutely loved it despite this! I love twists on traditional dishes and this was definitely it! Fantastic comfort food on a cold/wet day!

This is a really nice crumble and very easy to make. Downside was that it took over an hour to make! I cooked the apples for approx. 10 mins until soft but still in shape. I also doubled the crumble mixture and just made one large dish which was easily enough for 6-8 people. A sprinkle of brown sugar over the crumble before baking is a must!!

Wish I'd read the comments about doubling the crumble! There wasn't enough and it wasn't very crumbly. However, it did taste good and with custard was enough for 7. Odd number I know but that's how many I feed on a Sunday teatime!

Loved this and cooked it in mini pots smaller than the above, so had just about enough topping!

Due to comments on the sweetness of this dish I used cooking apples instead - adding a little lemon juice to prevent discolouration! BIG mistake - on adding the caramel the whole thing curdled and had to throw it away! I can only assume that it was the lemon juice that caused this!
