There’s definitely something comforting about warm apples smothered in buttery, crisp, golden crumbs topped with heaps of hot custard. It takes me back to the days when I lived at home and my mum would make apple crumble- man was that awful!

Those tough, fibrous bits of peel, the soggy crumb, the sugar-lacking apples of which there were always too many in comparison the carb-rich crumble topping. As an adult, I knew I had to improve that terrible recipe which my mum had used for so many years- sorry mum (I really hope she never read this!).

While I was on the apple crumble case, I thought I’d just pimp it up here and there by adding some caramel, some sugar and spice and all things nice (apparently what all little girls are made of if you know your nursery rhymes).
