  • 1kg apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 150g frozen cranberries
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 125g plain flour
  • 100g cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the apples, cranberries, spices and sugar into a 22cm square baking dish and mix well to combine.

  2. For the crumble, rub the flour and butter together using your fingertips until you have a breadcrumb-like consistency. Stir in the sugar and mixed spice. Sprinkle the crumble in an even layer over the fruit, then bake for 35-40 mins until golden on top and bubbling at the edges. Leave to cool slightly, then serve warm.
