Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 4 Warburtons crumpets
  • 25g butter
  • 50g sugar
  • 4 cooking apples, peeled and cored and cut into chunks
  • 30ml golden syrup
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 50g flour
  • 40g cold butter, diced
  • 25g oats
  • 50g brown sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve
  • Caramel sauce, to serve
  1. Heat oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Put the flour and butter into a large bowl. Rub together with your finger tips to break up the butter and mix it in with the flour, until the mixture looks like yellow breadcrumbs and is starting to clump together. Add the brown sugar and oats and bring together with your hands to combine.
  3. Spread the mixture on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 mins, until the crumble is crisp and golden. Set aside to keep warm.
  4. In a large saucepan, melt your butter. When it starts to foam, tip in the sugar. Cook on a low heat until the sugar starts to go a caramel colour. Add the apples, golden syrup and cinnamon then cook on a medium heat until the apples have softened and the sauce has thickened.
  5. Toast your crumpets. Top with your toffee apple compote and your crumble. Top with ice cream and drizzle with caramel sauce.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
