Method

1. Preheat your oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5. Peel the apples, quarter them and slice out the cores, then chop them into bite-sized chunks. Tip them into a medium-sized ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over 2 tbsp caster sugar and apple pie spice mix, then squeeze over the juice of 1/2 lemon. Toss to coat the apples in the sugar, spices and lemon juices. Set aside (don't worry about the apples going brown. It won't affect the final dish).
2. Tip the flour into a mixing bowl. Stir in 115g caster sugar. Chop in the cold butter then use your fingertips to rub the butter, flour and sugar together to make a fine sandy mixture. If you have a food processor you can use that to whizz everything together to make breadcrumbs - don't overprocess or it may start to form clumps.
3. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the top of the apples. Sprinle over the porrdige oats. Slide the dish into the oven and bake for 25-30 mins till golden brown. Let the crumble cool for a few mins in the dish, then serve in warm bowls with custard or cream.
4. Tip: If you use Bramley apples, up the sugar to 4 tbsp in the filling as Bramleys can be a bit sharper than eating apples.
