1. Ingredients (serves four):

Three to four cooking apples

2 tablespoons of water

100g (1/2 cup)brown sugar

150g (1 1/5 cups) plain flour

100g (just under 1/2 cup) butter

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2. Preparation:

Firstly, preheat the oven to 177˚C/Gas Mark 4/350°F. Whilst waiting, prepare the apples by peeling, removing the cores, then cutting them into segments (circa 2cm in size), and placing in a saucepan.

Add two tablespoons of water, the cinnamon and half the brown sugar and stew over a medium heat, making sure to mix until the apples become soft. Once ready, remove from the pan and put into an ovenproof dish.

Pour the rest of the sugar and the flour into a large bowl and mix with the butter, using your fingertips, until the ingredients start to form breadcrumbs. Once ready, sprinkle the mixture over the apples until they are completely covered.

Pop into the oven for 30 minutes, until piping hot and golden brown. You can also top this tasty treat with cream or custard, for a true British dining experience.
