Apple and brown sugar crumbles
  • 1
    Preheat oven to moderately hot, 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Lightly grease four 1 cup (250ml) ovenproof dishes; place on oven tray.
  • 2
    Peel and core the apples. Chop coarsely. Combine apple, juice, sugar and spice in a medium bowl.
  • 3
    To make brown sugar crumble, place the flour in a medium bowl, rub in the butter until combined. Add sugar and spice; mix well.
  • 4
    Divide the apple mixture among prepared dishes - it will need to be piled high as the apple shrinks on cooking. Press brown sugar crumble on top of the apples; bake in a moderately hot oven for about 30 minutes or until browned.

    Serve hot with ice-cream or cream, if desired.


Prepared crumble suitable to freeze. Not suitable to microwave.
