  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20 x 30cm cake tin with baking parchment. Put the apple in a small pan with 2 tbsp water. Cook for a few mins or until the apple starts to soften.

  2. Meanwhile, make the crumble topping. Rub the butter into the flour, sugar and lemon zest until it resembles big breadcrumbs, then set aside.

  3. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy, then gradually add the egg. Tip in the flour and milk, and continue to beat until everything is combined. Incorporate the apples then spoon the mixture into the tin, smooth the surface, then dot with the raspberries. Sprinkle over the crumble topping and bake for 45 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean, and the topping is golden.

I couldn’t find Bramley apples, so I used 4 Granny Smiths, with the juice of half a lemon added to the water when softening them in the pan. I reduced the sugar a little as well to 145g. It turned out absolutely beautifully, amazing on its own or warmed up with vanilla ice cream!

Lovely recipe l didn't have raspberries and halved the amount of sugar. Added a pinch of cinnamon to the crumble. It looked and tasted amazing. I will be doing this again,well worth a try.

I think it needs jazzing up - the only flavour is from the fruit, but the cake mix itself has no vanilla or spices in. I followed other comments to double the apple (2 bramley apples) and that worked well. I will try this again but will adapt to add flavour and more crumble.

I made this today with tinned peaches and fresh blueberries... it was good enough to win a family bake off!

Wow - what a fantastic recipe! Like a few others, I doubled the apple (two medium-ish Bramleys, not the huge ones) and used a slightly larger rectangular cake tin with no issues. It wasn't too sweet, the crumble top was devine and I'll most definitely make this one again!

Yummy recipe! I used doves farm by flour with 1\4 tap xantham gum in the cake mix and pinch in the crumbke. Turned out perfect, served with custard. Will make again for pudding after Sunday lunch.

This is so good and so easy to make. I reduced the amount of sugar in the sponge mix because I used eating apples and the 'cake' was still lovely. A keeper!

This is great- easy to make, good flavour, lovely and fluffy texture. The only change I will make next time is to add some vanilla essence.
