Toffee Apple Crumble

I love toffee apples and this is a great way to include their delicious flavour in a pudding! Bramleys really are the best cooking apple by far – I love their unique, tart flavour, and coupled with toffee, they make a great combination.


  • 175g soft brown sugar
  • zest and juice of 2 large lemons
  • 3 Bramley apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 300g Gluten-Free Flour Mix A
  • 150g unsalted butter, very cold
  • 80g caster sugar


  1. Pre heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Place the sugar in a large saucepan over a low heat and bring to the boil. The sugar will melt to form a clear liquid.
  3. Heat the liquid until it turns a pale amber colour. This will take about 10-15 minutes being careful not to overheat.
  4. Add the apples along with the lemon zest and juice to the pan, and cook for 5Ð6 minutes. Place in a 3cm deep, 24cm square baking dish.
  5. Place the flour and butter in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Just pulse in the caster sugar, do not overwork. Carefully spoon the topping over the cooked apples.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until well browned and cooked.
  7. Serve warm.


I serve my crumble with ice cream or custard.
