Toffee Apple Crumble

I had a big pile of huge Bramley apples off the tree in the garden sitting in the kitchen so decided to stew them all in one big batch then use some of the apples for this crumble.

To stew the apples I simply, peeled, cored, washed and chopped the apples into decent chunks, put them in a large pan with a little bit of water and a sprinkling of sugar, covered and then cooked on a low heat until tender, stirring every now and then.

It’s a little bit rough as I didn’t really measure everything, for the stewed apple it was maybe 1 or 2 decent sized apples worth, just enough to fill the ramekins 3/4 full.

It’s probably not the most healthy of deserts so it’s definitely one to have as a treat.

Ingredients (makes 4 little ramekin sized portions)

  • Stewed apple
  • 50g oats
  • 40g unsalted butter (although salted might work quite well too)
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g golden castor sugar
  • 10g hazlenuts, chopped
  • 10g flaked almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Some Fudge pieces (I used Thorntons vanilla much you use is up to you, i think i used about 8 pieces)


  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees C
  2. Spoon the stewed apple into the ramekin dishes, place a small piece of fudge in the middle.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan then stir in the flour and oats
  4. Remove from the heat, leave to cool for  couple of minutes, stir in the sugar and the cinnamon.
  5. Stir in the nuts
  6. Chop the fudge pieces into small chunks and mix in to the topping.
  7. Spoon the topping over your apple mix
  8. Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins until the topping is golden brown and crispy.
  9. Serve…if you want to be extra naughty serve with ice cream and toffee sauce.
