Chilean Guava & Bramley Apple Crumble

A delicious and heart warming recipe for those winter months.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Servings 4 people


  • 1 large handful of Chilean guavas
  • 1 Kilo Bramley apples peeled, cored and sliced.
  • 25g Soft light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Mixed spice
  • 25 g Butter chopped into chunks
  • 75 g Salted butter cut into small cubes
  • 175 g Self-raising flour
  • 100 g Ground almonds
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 100 g Caster sugar


  • Start off by tumbling the Chilean guavas, sliced apples, sugar, mixed spice and butter in a baking dish and roughly toss the whole mix to combine.
  • Now for the crumble all you need to do is pulse the remaining butter, flour, ground almonds, cinnamon & sugar in a food processor until it resembles a crumby rubble. Be careful not to over blitz it though, you are looking for a messy mass of uneven crumbs NOT smooth dough.
  • Tip this crumble mixture over the fruit in the baking dish, spreading it over to cover the whole surface, before finally pressing the surface down gently with the back of a fork to compact the mix.
  • Now pop the dish in the centre shelf of an oven set to 200C & bake it for roughly 40 minutes, or until your crumble is golden brown and crisp on top. Leave it to rest for a few minutes before dishing it out - this will further crisper up the crumble - and serve with an immoral amount of double cream.
