For the topping

Place your plain flour in a medium bowl, add the golden caster sugar and cold unsalted butter cubes. Using your fingertips rub the cold butter in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, give the bowl a little shake, and if you have any large lumps rub them in until they have all disappeared

Now, pour the crumble topping in the center on the top of the tender apples, and then gently spread it out evenly over the top of all of the apples. Then, press the crumble mixture down, so that it stays together, finish it off by dragging fork lines over the top so that it’ll crisp up

Sprinkle brown sugar on the crumb topping and bake for 35- 40 minutes until the topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm with vanilla ice cream or custard – enjoy your apple crumble!
