An easy, warming, family dessert. Delicious combination of buttery bread, and sharp, sweetened Bramley apples. Perfect served with custard, and ideal for using up stale bread.


  • 1kg Bramley apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon (juice only)
  • 5 tsps light muscovado sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 slices of good quality white loaf bread
  • 50g butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
  2. Place the apples, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan over a medium heat. Mix together.
  3. Put the lid on and bring to a simmer. Stir often, until the apples become soft.
  4. Remove the lid, and turn the heat to high. Mix the apples thoroughly, until the liquid evaporates and they form a smooth puree. Take off the heat and set aside.
  5. Brush both sides of the bread with melted butter. Grease a deep cake tin, and line the base and sides with 3/4 of the bread, making sure to overlap the sides.
  6. Spoon in the apple puree, and cover the top with the remaining bread. Make sure there are no gaps.
  7. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Leave to cool slightly, but serve warm.
  8. Works well with fresh cream or custard.
