From Hairy Bikers' Meals on Wheels


For the filling

  • 450g/1lb cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 15g/1/2oz butter
  • 85g/3oz sugar
  • ½ lemon, juice and zest

For the topping

  • 115g/4oz flour
  • pinch salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 55g/2oz butter, softened
  • 55g/2oz sugar
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 1 tbsp milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. For the filling, place the apples, butter, sugar and lemon juice and zest in a saucepan with a little water and cook gently until the apples have softened.

  3. Put the apple mixture in the bottom of a pie dish, packing the apples down to provide a firm base for the topping (this helps it rise evenly during baking).

  4. For the topping, sieve the flour together with a pinch of salt and the baking powder. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, beat in the egg and then lightly fold in the flour. Add a little milk if the mixture is too stiff.

  5. Pour the mixture on top of the apples and bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes or until the top is golden-brown and cooked through.
