Apple and Cinnamon Crumble

When you know you know! Ha ha. This cinnamon infused apple crumble is the ultimate comfort food. Crisp, tart apple coated in crunchy crumble and smothered in hot custard.

So simple and delicious you’ll never buy one in the supermarket again!

I cook for those that I love to show love, to comfort and there’s no better comfort food than this.


3 Bramley apples

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Juice of half a lemon

1 tablespoon butter


225g plain flour

100g butter – diced

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 a lemon squeezed over apples

Tablespoon demerara to sprinkle


Pre heat oven to 190C / 170C fan

Peel, core and slice your apples.

Add to a saucepan with your tablespoon of butter and juice of half a lemon.

Stir over a low heat to soften and transfer to your baking dish.

Sprinkle over your cinnamon.

Set aside while you make your topping.

In a separate large mixing bowl mix together your flour, diced butter and brown sugar. I put my hands in and rub it all together to form a crumbly mixture.

When it’s looking crumbly, scatter it all over your apples in your baking dish and pat down a little so it covers all of the apples.

Sprinkle over a tablespoon of demerara for extra crunch and bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 35 minutes.

Serve with lots of hot custard.
