Toffee apple crumble

At the request of the boy, i made toffeeapple crumble today!

If you would love to make it, here is how:

For the Toffee:

100ml/3½fl oz water
225g/8oz granulated sugar
30ml/1fl oz golden syrup
30g/1oz unsalted butter
450g/1lb cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges
450g/1lb eating apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges

For the crumble:

150g/5oz plain flour
150g/5oz unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

For the toffee apples, place the water and sugar into a saucepan and slowly bring up to the boil. Reduce the heat once the sugar has melted, add the syrup and butter and then bring up to the boil again, stirring constantly.

Turn down the heat, add the apples and cook, stirring gently, until just soft. Place into an ovenproof dish.

For the crumble, rub the flour, butter and sugar together in a bowl with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Spoon the crumble evenly over the toffee apple mixture and place in the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp and golden-brown.
