This apple and almond crumble takes no time to throw together and is a warming treat during the colder months. Using ground and flaked almonds in the crumble topping adds a lovely nutty flavour to this classic comforting pud, and the oats make the texture a bit more rustic. Adding almond essence to the apple mixture really complements the flavour in the topping too. The perfect crumble has a soft stewed fruit filling, still with a bit of bite, and topping with the perfect balance of crunch, crumble and chew, and we think our recipe does just that! The sharp and sweet apple mixture with a hint of almond is a bit different from a classic crumble and is so moreish. Our recipe serves 8 but you could easily halve to feed a family of four – or just make the whole batch so everyone has seconds! This apple and almond crumble is a twist on a tried and tested British staple, and the perfect pud to feed the family on a winter weekend.

Ingredients

  • 125g butter
  • 120g flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 50g demerara sugar
  • 40g oats
  • 20g flaked almonds
  • 500g Bramley apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 500g Cox apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1tsp almond essence
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 50g caster sugar

Method

  • Heat the oven to 180C. To make the crumble topping, rub the butter, flour and ground almonds together until they resemble breadcrumbs. Stir through the demerara sugar, oats, almonds and a pinch of salt and set aside for later.

  • In a large oven proof dish, mix the apples with the almond essence, lemon zest and juice, and caster sugar. Top the apple mixture with the crumble mixture.

  • Bake the crumble for 50 mins, or until golden and crunchy on top. Serve with custard, ice cream or cream, whatever you prefer!
