    Ingredients

    • 6 dessert apples, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 150ml (¼ pt) dry white wine (or apple or grape juice, if preferred)
    • 4 cloves
    • 1tbsp clear honey
    • 1 x 22cm (8½ in) ready-cooked sweet pastry case
    • 100g (3½ oz) raspberries
    • For the topping:
    • 200g (7oz) plain flour
    • 100g (3½ oz) butter, diced
    • 100g (3½ oz) caster sugar
    • 1tsp ground cinnamon

    Method

    • Preheat the oven to 220ºC (425ºF, gas mark 7). Put the apples, lemon juice, white wine, cloves and honey into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 mins or until the apples are just soft. Stir occasionally.

    • Remove the apples using a slotted spoon, and place in the ready-cooked pastry case. Discard the cloves. Scatter the raspberries over the apples.

    • Put all the ingredients for the topping into a bowl and rub together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

    • Cover the fruit with the topping and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until it is brown and crisp. Serve warm.
