  • 200ml water
  • 2kg diced apples

Topping Ingredients

  • 1kg plain flour
  • 500g butter
  • 500g demerara sugar


  1. Simmer all the fruit filling ingredients together for around half an hour until the fruit begins to soften.
  2. Once the fruit has softened, pour the fruit filling into your desired crumble dish.
  3. Mix the remaining crumble topping ingredients together until a crumb has developed.
  4. Spread a thick layer of the topping over the fruit and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for approximately 45 minutes until hot and the crumble topping is golden.

Apple Galette

  • 40g plain flour
  • 40g corn flour
  • 3g vanilla pods
  • 150g egg yolk
  • 1L milk


  1. Whisk together the sugar, flour, corn flour and egg.
  2. Bring the milk and vanilla to the boil.
  3. Pour over the flour mixture before returning to the pan and stirring until thickened.
  4. Cut 15cm disks of puff pastry, spread a spoonful of pastry cream over the base and then arrange one peeled, cored and sliced apple on top (as shown here).
  5. Bake at 180 degrees for around 30 minutes until cooked.

Apple Sauce


  • 1kg Bramley apples
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 100ml water
  • A squeeze of lemon juice


  1. Peel and chop the Bramley apples.
  2. Add the apples to a pan with the caster sugar, water and a squeeze of lemon juice.
  3. Cook over a high heat until the apple has broken down and the water has evaporated.
  4. At this stage it can either be served as is for a chunky sauce or blitzed until smooth.
