Granny Smith apples, tart and firm, seem almost made for this delectable dessert. The sugary spices flavouring the topping give a lovely crisp crunch.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/4 cup water
110g caster sugar
110g firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
110g self-raising flour
125g butter, diced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a shallow 4-cup ovenproof dish.
  2. Put the apples in the prepared dish and add the water. Combine the sugars, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and flour in a bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Spoon evenly over the apples.
  3. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for a further 30 minutes or until the topping is golden and crisp. Serve hot or warm.

Tip

  • When preparing fruits such as apples and pears that go brown due to oxidisation once peeled or cut, drop the pieces or slices as you prepare them into a bowl of water that has been acidulated with a squeeze of lemon juice. Drain and dry the fruit before using in the recipe.
