It’s also easy to double or triple if you want to share the love with many. Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, just make sure to use a suitably sized dish for the amount.

INGREDIENTS


  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 3 tbsp oats
  • 3 tbsp golden or Demerara sugar, plus extra if needed
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 45g butter
  • 1 large Bramley apple, cored & peeled
  • Squeeze of lemon

INSTRUCTIONS


  • 1.Pre-heat oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/gas 4.
  • 2.In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and give a quick stir to mix. Add the butter and rub into the flour mixture with your fingertips until it forms a lumpy dough. You can also use a mixer.
  • 3.Cut the apple into chunks or thick slices, whichever you prefer, and arrange half of them in a small shallow oven-proof casserole dish (with a capacity of about 500ml). Sprinkle with a bit of extra sugar if you prefer a sweeter crumble. Arrange the remaining apple on top and sprinkle with more sugar if preferred. Drizzle with a squeeze of lemon.
  • 4.Pile the crumble mixture on top of the apple, don’t worry if it seems too high for the dish, it will sink as it cooks. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden and it’s bubbling around the edges.
  • 5.Remove from oven and leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving while still warm. If you prefer firmer pieces of apple in your crumble, you can cut the apple thicker, and smaller pieces will mean a softer apple filling.
  • 6.Can be prepared ahead of time and kept in the fridge until ready to bake.
  • 7.Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, just make sure to use a suitably sized dish for the amount. Larger crumbles may need an extra 5 minutes of baking. To test, use a sharp knife to pierce a piece of apple in the middle of the crumble, if it passes through easily, it’s ready.
