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.

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.
