Toffee Apple Crumble

Toffee Apple Crumble

This is a great dessert served with vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche. The recipe is adapted from one I found on Rachel Allens website and makes a very generous 6 servings. Note the Emile Henry pie dish in the photo that my lovely hubby bought me for my Birthday.

Toffee Sauce:
125g Golden Syrup
125g Light Brown Sugar
50g Butter
100ml Single Cream
1 TSP Vanilla Extract

175g Self Raising Flour
Zest 1 Lemon
85g Butter, cubed
85g Light Brown Sugar
50g Ground Almonds

6 Eating Apples - I used Braeburn, peeled and chopped
25g Butter

Step 1: Preheat oven 180c/350f/Gas 4. Put all of the ingredients for the toffee sauce into saucepan over a medium heat and boil for 3 minutes, stirring until smooth.
Step 2: Make the crumble topping by placing the flour and lemon zest in bowl and rubbing in he butter. Stir in the rest of ingredients for the crumble and set aside.
Step 3: Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the chopped apples and cook for few minutes. Add half of the sauce
Step 4: Tip the apple mixture in a pie dish (1.5 litre) and sprinkle over the crumble topping. Bake for 40 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream and the reserved toffee sauce.

  12. Would you believe I actually made an apple crumble quite recently. It's one of my favourite puds, but the addition of toffee just blows it out of the stratosphere. Yum!

  13. Oh yum - sounds wonderful and perfect for this cold snowy weather. Like the sound of the ground almonds in the topping.

  14. I am intrigued by Golden Syrup as it's not something we use in the States. However, I've seen it for sale on the top shelf, all dusty, of my supermarket with all of the disgusting fake maple syrup, which ironically is not dusty. I'll have to pick up a can to give your recipe a go!

  15. LOVE the pie dish ;-) bless your hubby! Crumble looks great too, just what we need in this weather! xx

  16. I love Toffee! What a great crumble.
