Serves 2

INGREDIENTS 

For the apple
2 Bramley apples from this week’s Best of British Selection
1 tbsp cornflour

For the crumble
45g The Estate Dairy Unsalted Cultured Butter
90g Billington’s Golden Caster Sugar
90g Wessex Mill Plain Flour
90g ground almonds

To the soufflés
4 Cacklebean Egg whites
100g Billington’s Golden Caster Sugar

 

METHOD

  1. Cut the apple just above half way, scoop out the flesh and discard the seeds.
  2. Place the flesh into a pan with a little water and cook until the apple has turned into a fine pulp. Thicken with the cornflour and reserve to one side – this is your apple coulis.
  3. For the crumble, crumb butter and flour. Add sugar and ground almonds, place onto a tray and bake in an oven until golden brown.
  4. For the soufflés, whisk egg the whites with sugar until a meringue forms. Make a paste with apple coulis and a little of the meringue and fold the remaining meringue.
  5. To assemble, mix in a little of the crumble mix, place into the scooped out apples. Cover the top with more crumble.
  6. Bake at 180ᵒc until fully risen – approximately 10-12 minutes.
