Mum's Traditional Apple Crumble

Serves 4
450g/1lb Cooking Apples, peeled and cored (see note below)
75g-100g/3 - 4oz Sugar
For the Crumble
175g/6oz Flour
75g/3oz Butter
100g/4oz Sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 190C, 375F, Gas mark 5 and grease an ovenproof dish.
2. Cut the apples into 2.5cm/1-inch chunks then place in a saucepan with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Sprinkle over the sugar (according to how sweet the fruit is) and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes, stirring from time to time.
3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs then stir in the sugar and mix well.
4. Taste the apple mixture and stir in a little more sugar if necessary, then transfer to the greased ovenproof dish and top with half the crumble mixture pressing firmly. 
5. Sprinkle  the remaining crumble mixture evenly over the top and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden brown.   Serve hot or cold.
NB If you are using eating apples, reduce the amount of sugar as these will be sweeter than cooking apples.
