  • 1 kg (2 lb) apples
  • 100 g (3 oz) plain flour
  • 100 g (3 oz) wholemeal flour
  • 125 g (4 oz) brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 125 g (4 oz) butter
  1. Core, peel and slice the apples.
  2. Place the apples in a large pan with 1 tbsp water. Add 2 tbsp of the sugar and one-quarter of the butter. Place on a low heat and cook for 10 minutes. The apples should lose their crispness by this stage. Remove from the heat and put aside.
  3. Sieve together the flours and the cinnamon into a bowl. Cut the butter into cubes and mix it into the flour by hand until the mixture takes the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  4. Add in the sugar and mix well. You have now made the crumble topping!
  5. Place the apple mixture in a casserole dish and sprinkle on the crumble topping. Spread evenly.
  6. Cook in an oven at 180°C for about 35 minutes until the topping is golden brown.
Titli's Tips
Keep the crumble mix light on the top of the apples – don’t be tempted to press it down or the topping will become like a biscuit.

If you need to prepare this in advance you can stop after stage 4. Serve with cream, ice cream or custard.
