Apple, Caramel and Walnut Crumble



We've had two glorious weeks of sun here on the North Cornish coast but today it's turned decidedly Autumnal - I don't mind, I love Autumn. After a night of heavy rain and strong winds I woke to find loads of my Bramley apples had fallen off the tree, so out I trotted in my dressing gown to rescue them before the wildlife started helping themselves.

Caramel is used instead of sugar in this crumble recipe and I think it gives it a wonderful flavour along with the nuttiness of the walnuts. Despite living in Cornwall where clotted cream is king, I'm a custard with crumble kind of girl! But either is fine, whichever you prefer.

ingredients:

  • 6 large Bramley Apples

  • 100g Butter
  • 30g Walnuts, chopped

instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200°c (180° fan).

  • Step 3: In a large bowl rub together the butter and flour until you have 'breadcrumbs' then stir in the chopped walnuts and remaining caramel. Scatter over the apples.
  • Step 4: Bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes until the crumble is brown on top.
