Apple compote

  • 3 - 4 medium cooking bramley apples
  • 30g granulated sugar

Crumble topping

  • 200g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 100g demerara sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees/gas 4. Peel the skin off of the apples and cut them into small pieces.

  2. Place the cut apples into a medium saucepan, and pour over enough cold water to just cover the bulk of the apples. Gently heat the apples on the hob until they begin to slightly absorb the water and become a little softer.

  3. Drain a small amount of water and heat the apples again, this time adding the granulated sugar a teaspoon at a time. Once the apple compote has become soft but not too mushy, drain any excess water from the saucepan and pour the compote in a ovenproof dish.

  4. While allowing the compote to cool down, sift the flour and add the sugar in a mixing bowl and fold them together. Add the butter pieces. Using your hands, pinch the flour (with sugar) and the butter pieces together to mix and combine them. Continue doing this until a buttery, crumbly mixture is made. Shake the mixing bowl to allow any bigger mixture chunks to get to the top, and then pinch these to break them apart and make them smaller. Mix in the cinnamon.

  5. Transfer the crumble mixture on top of the apple compote and place in the preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes.
