Ingredients
  • 225g plain flour
  • 2 level tsp ground cinnamon
  • 140g chilled butter, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 100g Demerara sugar
  • 15g caster sugar
  • 8 Cox apples, each peeled, cored and cut into 8 wedges
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Sift the flour and cinnamon into a bowl. Rub in 125g of the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs (or use a food processor). Stir in the Demerara sugar.

  • Melt the remaining butter and the caster sugar in a large pan, then add the apples. Cook over a gentle heat, tossing now and then, until they begin to soften. Pour into an ovenproof dish, about 23cm x 18cm.

  • Sprinkle the crumble over the fruit, put the dish on a baking tray and cook for 30-35 mins.
