I started by peeling and chopping cooking apple into small pieces. It was about 600g of apples, but 3 large Bramley apples should do the trick. I added sultanas, light brown sugar, cinnamon, mixed spice, nutmeg and the orange zest.
I mixed it all together and spread it out into a dish. My dish is 31x21cm (12×8 inches).
For the crumble I mixed light brown sugar and plain flour together. I then added butter, cut into cubes and rubbed it with my fingers until it looked like breadcrumbs. This is quite a thick crumble topping, which is how I like it, so if you prefer a thinner layer take a third off the measurements.
I spread the crumble topping over the fruit and baked it on 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for 45 minutes until golden and bubbling.
