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.


  1. Like the sound of the toffee sauce! Your crumble looks lovely.

  2. I love the pie dish as well as what's inside:D

  3. Toffee and apples are just perfect together, this looks great.

  4. Oh wow, I love the sound and look of this Toffee Apple Crumble!! I'm book-marking this one.


  5. Snap with what Maria said! My first thought was 'oooh wow yummy!'

  7. Wow the toffee sauce make this to die for!

  8. This does sound like a keeper, I'm anxious to try it.

  9. Indeed a keeper! This looks amazing!

  10. Oh what I would give for a slice of this. It looks and sounds PERFECT!

  11. 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!

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

  13. 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!

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

  15. I love Toffee! What a great crumble.

  16. Toffee in an apple crumble sounds so good!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
