Bramley Apple Crumble

Bramley Apple Crumble

A traditional favourite to make for Bramley Apple Week (6th - 13th February 2011).

Add a dollop of cream or coat it with custard - then sit back, relax and enjoy!


  • 4 large Bramley cooking apples
  • 4tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large lemon
  • 315g caster sugar
  • 2 pinches of cinnamon
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 250g plain flour


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.
  • Peel and core the apples and cut into rough chunks.
  • In a saucepan heat up the oil and squeeze in the lemon juice.( You can add some zest for extra flavour.)
  • Add 175g of the sugar and whilst it is dissolving, toss in the apple chunks then sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Cook for 5-8 minutes until the apples have started to soften.
  • Once the apples have softened place to the side in a large baking dish.
  • Place the flour in a separate bowl and gradually work in the butter with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs (this can be done with a food processor if you prefer).
  • Add in the remaining sugar, stirring carefully so it is dispersed evenly.
  • Once the sugar is added you can pour the mixture over the top of your apples.
  • Place in the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until well-browned.
  • Serve hot or cold - with custard, cream or ice-cream.
