- 300g plain flour
- 100g demerara sugar
- 80g caster sugar
- 200g – 220g butter, at room temperature, roughly cubed
- a little more butter for greasing
- 3 large or 4 medium cooking apples (Bramleys)
- 50g soft brown sugar
- 1 tsp plain flour
- generous pinch/quarter tsp ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350˚F.
- Place the flour and sugar in a roomy bowl and mix well.
- Add the cubes of butter, a little at a time and rub into the flour, using your fingertips until the mix resembles breadcrumbs.
- Peel & core the apples and cut into 1-2 inch slices and place in a large bowl. The smaller the pieces, the less “whole” they’ll be after cooking.
- Sprinkle the sugar, flour & cinnamon & mix well.
- Butter a rectangular dish (9″ x 5″ roughly) and spoon the apple mix all over, spreading it out evenly.
- Top the apples with the crumble, again evenly, and press down slightly.
- Bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes until the crumble is a golden brown (don't forget to get an adult to help!). The fruit seeping out & bubbling is perfectly fine & adds to the beauty of the finish.
- Serve with custard, ice cream, fresh cream or even clotted cream.
The amount of crumble here is generous, if you prefer more filling to crumble, reduce the amount of flour to 250 & butter to 180-200g.
