I started by peeling and chopping 3 large cooking apple into small pieces. It was about 600g of apples, but 3 large Bramley apples should do the trick. I added 70g sultanas, 70g light brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp mixed spice, a pinch of nutmeg and the zest of 1 orange.
I mixed it all together and spread it out into a dish. My dish is 31x21cm (12×8 inches).
For the crumble I mixed 190g light brown sugar and 350g plain flour together. I then added 220g 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.
Serve warm with custard for a warming and spicy winter treat!
