  Back to all recipes


6 Granny smith Apples, peeled, cored and diced
250g caster sugar
200g plain flour
120g butter
1 clove or cinnamon stick
1tsp ground cinnamon (optional)


  1. Put the Apple chunks into a pan, add 3/4's of the sugar, the cinnamon stick or clove and cover. Allow to stew gently for half an hour, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.  Keep checking as they can easily burn at the beginning.
  2. Check that the fruit is cooked by mashing it a bit with a wooden spoon.  The apples should be soft but not pureed. 
  3. Put the apples into the serving dish and allow to cool.  Set the temperature of the oven to 150C.
  4. Mix the flour, remaining sugar, cinnamon (optional) and the butter with your fingers in a bowl until it becomes  like a breadcrumb consistency.  Cover the stewed apples with the crumble topping, without pressing down.
  5. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and crunchy. Spoon a portion of crumble into a dish and serve with cream or ice cream.
