Apple Crumble - Everyone Loves a Fruit Crumble

So easy to make - apple crumble is at it's best freshly made and still bubbling from the oven. 
Try adding a sprinkling of soft brown sugar over the top - it will go slightly crunchy but will be a bit chewy at the same time.
 Of course it doesn't have to be made with apples, you can use whatever fruit you fancy.

Print Recipe
Serves 4
For the crumble you will need:
200g plain flour
50g soft brown sugar
50g caster sugar
100g unsalted butter - room temperature and cut into cubes
a knob of butter for greasing
plus a little extra soft brown sugar for sprinkling

For the filling you will need:
500g Bramley (cooking) apples - peeled, cored and cut into 1cm slices
50g soft brown sugar
a good pinch of ground cinnamon

How to do it:
Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/or Gas4
Put the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Add a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture.
Keep rubbing between your fingers (a bit like you're counting bank notes) until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Butter an ovenproof dish - mine's oval and is about 24cm (9in) and put the apples on the bottom.  Sprinkle over the sugar and cinnamon and give it a mix - but be careful not to break up the fruit.

Evenly sprinkle the crumble mixture on top and then a scattering of soft brown sugar.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes until the crumble is nicely browned and bubbling.

 Serve straight away with ice cream, cream or custard.
