  • 3-4 Bramley or Granny Smith apples
  • ½ cup 100g granulated sugar
  • 1 cup 200g dark chocolate
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup 150g all purpose flour (also works well with gluten-free flour)
  • cup 75g salted butter, softened


  • If you're planning to cook it straight after preparing, preheat the oven to 350F. If you want, however, you can make the crumble beforehand, and cook it later.
  • First, you need to prepare the apples. Half fill a large saucepan with water, and peel, core and chop the apples into 1-2 cm chunks.
  • Place apples and the cinnamon stick in the saucepan while you’re chopping, to stop them from turning brown.
  • Drain all of the water from the saucepan, add another 2 tbsp of water and half of the sugar, and cook on medium heat.
  • Continue cooking on medium heat until the apples become mushy. Once mushy, put the apples into an ovenproof dish and remove the cinnamon stick.
  • Break the dark chocolate up into chunks and sprinkle on top of the apples in the dish.
  • Place the flour and the remaining sugar in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and use your hands to mix everything together until the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs.
  • Pour this evenly on top of the stewed apple. If you are making the crumble in advance, cover it with cling film and allow to cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge.
  • When ready to cook, place the crumble in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Don't worry if the crumble doesn't looked cooked properly, it most likely is! Eat hot from the oven.
