For the filling

  • 225 ml double cream
  • 140 g salted butter plus a little to grease
  • 140 g dark soft brown sugar
  • 5 Bramley apples peeled, cored and sliced into wedges
  • 50 g dates halved

For the topping

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 125 g salted butter, cold and cubed
  • 100 g dark soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


To make the filling

  • Put the cream, butter and sugar in a non-stick pan over a medium heat
  • Stir until the butter has melted, then continue to heat until you have a thickness resembling thick gravy. It might take up to 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl to cool.
  • Place the apples in the pan you were using for the sauce and stir in a couple of tablespoons of the toffee sauce.
  • Cook the apples over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly until just soft, then tip into a greased oven dish.
  • Pour in the toffee sauce.
  • Add the dates.

Make the topping

  • Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan, 400F).
  • Rub the flour and butter together.
  • Stir in the sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle on top of the apples - don't press down.
  • Bake the crumble in the oven for 20 minutes until lightly browned and bubbling.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving - it will be HOT!
