A new spin on the classic apple crumble, great for those with a sweet tooth!


For the filling:

  • 5 medium apples
  • Approx 40g wedge of butter
  • 5 heaped desertspoons light brown soft sugar
  • Approx 150g caramel sauce/dulce de leche/similar

For the topping:

  • 4oz/113g softened butter
  • 5oz/141g flour
  • 3oz/85g unsweetened muesli (optional - replace with 85g flour)
  • 4oz/113g light brown soft sugar
  • A handful of fudge cut into approx 1/2cm cubes


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 180. Peel, core and slice the apples into roughly 1/2 cm thick slices. Put in a large saucepan and cover while you make the caramel.
  • STEP 2
    In a small frying pan melt the wedge of butter and stir in the sugar. Mix well, until the mixture resembles a brown toffee sauce. (Add a little more sugar if it there seems to be left over butter in the pan.)
  • STEP 3
    Pour this sauce over the apples and leave to stew over a medium heat for approximately 10 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and cover until the topping is made.
  • STEP 4
    To make the topping, cube the butter into a large mixing bowl. Add the flour and muesli and crumble together between your fingers until well mixed, then add the sugar and repeat the process to form fine crumbs.
  • STEP 5
    Using a slotted spoon to leave most of the juice behind, spoon half of the apple mixture into a baking dish or pudding basin. Spread over a generous layer of toffee sauce/dulce de leche, then top with the remaining apples.
  • STEP 6
    Cover the apples with about 2/3 of the topping, sprinkle the fudge cubes over ensuring an even coverage, then top with the remaining crumble mix.
  • STEP 7
    Bake at 180 for approx 30 minutes or until the topping is brown and the apples bubbling.
  • STEP 8
    Delicious served hot with ice cream.
