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.

  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!

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
