Revealed! Our Limited Edition Toffee Apple Crumble Recipe
Posted on 30 October 2013
Apples, sticky toffee sauce, soft dates, beneath a crisp, dark crumble... altogether mind-blowingly moreish.
It's fair to say that our Limited Edition Toffee Apple crumble has been a hit - we've been inundated with requests for the recipe, so here it is!
Let us know how you get on. This serves 4-6
You Will Need
For the filling:
- 500g bramley apples
- 30g chopped dates
For the toffee sauce:
- 60g dark brown sugar
- 50g butter
- 80g double cream
For the crumble:
200g plain flour
100g soft brown sugar
1. Prepare your apples: peel, core and slice them and place in a bowl; squeeze some lemon juice over them (this prevents the apples from going brown)
2. Place the dark brown sugar, butter & double cream in a small sauce pan and heat gently while stirring. Bring to the boil, ensuring all the sugar has melted and then take off the heat.
3. Carefully pour into a heatproof bowl and add the chopped dates. Mix well and then pour into your dish. Top with your pre prepared sliced apples. Put to one side while you make the crumble.
4. Cut the cold butter into 1cm cubes. In a bowl add the flour, cubed butter and ground cinnamon. Using your fingertips work into a crumble that should resemble fine breadcrumbs. Once you can no longer see pieces of butter, add the light brown sugar and mix well. Do not over work otherwise the crumble will overheat and start to look more like cookie dough!
5. Evenly sprinkle the crumble topping over the apples and pop straight into a preheated oven (170C fan/190C electric/gas mark 5) for 35 minutes
