Caramelised Apple Crumble

By Sarah Adams

I thought I would slightly deviate away from a cake this week, although I am not abandoning baking altogether! Caramelised Apple Crumble – yum yum – it’s actually quite light so it will be perfect for a sunny but still slightly chilly day. Make it for your dinner party guests because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like apple crumble?

Ingredients: The crumble

Makes 4

70g melted un-salted butter
140g flour
60g sugar
25g oats
½ teaspoon salt

Mix all of the dry ingredients together and then pour in the melted butter. Bring together as much as you can – don’t worry though as it will be quite dry.

Sprinkle it onto your baking tray and bake at 160˚C for 30mins, or until golden. Make sure to check it every 10 minutes and stir.

Ingredients: The apples

3 cooking apples
500g sugar
500ml good quality cider at room temperature
1 cinnamon stick

Melt the sugar

Peel and slice the apples.

Take a large heavy based saucepan and heat it up, sprinkle in ¼ of the sugar leave it to melt.

Now add the next ¼ of sugar, continue until all is added.

Pro Tip: At this stage it is very important to keep an eye on the sugar and watch for a caramel colour.

When it does carefully pour in the cider, leave it to settle before adding more cider.

With a spoon, make sure the cider and caramel is combined and add the cinnamon.

Now, add the apples and cook on a low heat.

When the apples are nearly done, take half out and place into another dish. The others cook for longer and once they are very soft take them out and mash them to a coarse puree.


Take the two apples and a dessert ring and place it onto the plate, fill it with apple slices and puree packing it all in well.
Now take your crumble and sprinkle some on the plate and the rest top your crumble.

Pro Tip: A scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel finishes it off perfectly
