Apple Crumble Cake for Bramley Apple Week

A delicious cake to celebrate apples!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away... or so they say. The proverb actually emerged in the 19th century, it was a way to promote eating more healthily and getting fruit into people’s diets. The basic idea was if you eat healthy food, in general you’ll be healthier and you won’t need to see the doctor as much. This was at a time before the NHS, when you had to pay to see a doctor and many chose not to, regardless of how ill they were, because they simply couldn’t afford to.

We have a long history with apples, even within religion, with Adam and Even in the garden of Eden and Eve being tempted by the forbidden fruit – the apple. But now, with so many varieties available, we all have our favourites. One of the most used apples is the Bramley Apple – it is usually eaten cooked due to its sourness. If you have an apple pie or an apple crumble, it’s more than likely that the apple used is the Bramley Apple. As it is the nation's go-to Apple when it comes to cooking and desserts it’s no wonder that there is a day dedicated to celebrating this wonderful apple variety! We celebrate Bramley Apple Week from the 6th – 12th of February.

If you love apples, and you love apple crumble, then we have the perfect cake to celebrate the week with:
