    When I saw the title of the thread,I thought I'm sure I've just seen a recipe for that.Luckily w get the mail on a Sat- I like the tv guide and it does some good recipes.Here goes- I'll alter the text a bit so as not to offend copyright.

    Crumble Top
    125g butter
    175g plain flour
    half teasp cinnamon
    25g rolled oats
    100g demerara sugar

    Base
    1.5kg bramley apples
    25g butter
    8-10 tbsp bought toffee sauce (Dulce de leche) I think M&S do one of these too.
    2 tbsp water

    Method
    Pre-heat oven 180deg/MK 6 gas
    Peel and core apples,chop into chunks.Cook in a pan withthe butter & water.Cover and cook on low till softening-10 mins or so.
    Put into dish(either 8 small individual or 1 large) and put the toffee sauce on top.
    Make the top by rubbing in flour,butter and cinnamon,then add the oats.Put on top of apple mix,and top with the sugar.
    Place on a baking tray,cook around 40-50 mins,till golden,and juices bubble round side.

    It says you can add half a teaspoon of nutmeg,mixed spice or cinnamon to your custard if using .

    Enjoy...I thought it sounded yummy when I saw it.

    I have often made a toffee apple crumble, I just add brown sugar and a knob of butter to the apples and cook them in the oven till the apples are soft, I then stir in a couple of tablespoons of cream and top with a crumble mix made with a higher than normal proportion of butter - using about 4oz butter to 6oz flour. I sometimes add some oats or chopped nuts to the crumble topping. finish cooking as normal.

    I have just tasted food heaven.

    I made Sue20bracknell's Sticky toffee apple crumble and it is amazing.

    However, next time I think I will only use 150mls of cream, as the sauce was thin so I had to reduce it down a bit, and even then by the time the apples have stewed in it and released all their juice, it boiled over and made a sugary mess everywhere. Worth it though
