My most delicious Apple Crumble

Ingredients - Serves 4 to 6

(225g) flour - plain wholemeal
(100g) margarine
(50g) muscovado or soft brown sugar
(450g) baking apples

Half teaspoon cinnamon
Splash of vanilla
Crushed hazelnuts


  • Wash, core and chop the apples into chunks. Put in a pan with 4 tablespoons of water and a little lemon juice and. Put on moderate heat and leave to stew for 5 minutes or so, stirring occasionally. The apple should be just starting to soften, not becoming a pulp. Add in the Vanilla & cinnamon
  • Mix flour and margarine with the fingertips until it is like the texture of breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and mix.
  • Put the cooked apples in a greased pie dish and sprinkle with a little more sugar. Cover with the crumble mixture. Top with hazelnuts
  • Bake in the oven at gas mark 5, 190°C, 375°F for 30 to 40 minutes, or until brown on top.(It should look a little like this)

This recipe can be used to make any sort of fruit crumble. For example rhubarb - just substitute the apples with 450g of washed and chopped rhubarb for every 4 people and treat it in exactly the same way. Other varieties could include blackcurrent, blueberry, blackberry and apple, almost anything you like really.
