It feels like autumn now, the apples are starting to fall from the trees. The apple trees in the garden are old and the varieties are not the ones you find in the shops, except for one I know is a Bramley. To use the apples up we like apple crumble so here is my recipe with a twist!
Preheat the oven to 190 C/375 F/Gas Mark 5.
I used about 900 g/2 lb dessert apples. Peel, core and chop into chunky pieces. Put in a pan with a tsp of cinnamon, tbs of sugar and a tbs of water. Cook gently until apples look soft. Put in a dish.
To make the crumble topping. Place 225 g/8 oz plain flour in a bowl and rub in 115 g/4 oz butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. stir in 115 g/4 oz sugar.
THIS IS THE LUXURY BIT. Before you put the topping on the apples break a 100 g/3 1/2 oz of dark CHOCOLATE and lay it on top of the apples. Spread the crumble mixture evenly over the chocolate.
Bake in the center of the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Serve with cream or custard
