Apple And Cranberry Crumble

A tasty apple and cranberry dessert perfect to cap off any meal.


  • 800 g apples
  • 80 g cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 knob of butter
  • '4-spice' mix
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 g chilled butter
  • 80 g demerara sugar or 'cassonade'
  • 80 g ground almonds


  1. Wash and peel the apples, then cut them into a small dice, throwing away the core.
  2. Melt the butter in a pot and add the apples and the cranberries followed by the '4 spices' and a little water.
  3. Mix well, then allow to simmer for around ten minutes.
  4. In a salad bowl mix the flour, the sugar and the ground almonds. Slowly add the chilled butter in small cubes quickly incorporating it using the fingers. The mixture should take on a sandy texture.
  5. Heat your oven to 210°C. Put the cranberry and apple mixture in a gratin dish and using a tablespoon, place the crumble mixture on top of this without piling it up.
  6. Smooth it out with the back of the spoon and place in the oven for around 20 mins or until the crumble is nicely browned.
