This dish is a spiced winter warmer, based on the classic dessert, an apple crumble. Poached apples and pears in red wine and mulling spices topped with a crispy crumble. A comforting dessert which you can serve with friends and family then re-heat the leftovers the next day (if you have any!).

For the mulled fruit:

Serves 4-6

3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths

3 pears, peeled, cored and quartered

4 large pieces or orange peel each studded with 3 cloves

1 cinnamon stick

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tbsp sugar

375ml (½ bottle) red wine

250g frozen black cherries

50g mixed dried fruit

200g flour

100g of oats

100g vegetable oil

a pinch of salt

a handful of crushed almonds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Put all of the ingredients for the mulled fruit into a large ovenproof baking dish and bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together all of the crumble ingredients except the almonds, you can use your hands to ensure everything’s mixed together well.
  4. Once the fruit has poached in the mulled wine and softened, spread the crumble over the top and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the crumble is golden and crispy.
  5. Place the almonds on a baking tray in the oven 5 minutes before the crumble is ready and toast them.
