1 egg yolk

Apple custard topping
3 green apples , peeled, cored and chopped
20 g (¾ oz) unsalted butter
80 g (2¾ oz/⅓ cup) caster (superfine) sugar
2 eggs
180 ml (6 fl oz) pouring (whipping) cream
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
Crumble topping
60 g (2¼ oz/½ cup) plain (all-purpose) flour
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
40 g (1½ oz/⅓ cup) finely chopped walnuts
60 g (2¼ oz) unsalted butter , cubed


1. Grease an 18 × 28 cm (7 × 11 in) shallow tin and line with baking paper, leaving the paper hanging over the two long sides.

2. Sift the flour and sugar into a bowl. Add the butter, egg yolk and 2 tablespoons water and mix to form a ball. Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper and fit in the base of the tin. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F/Gas 5). Line the pastry with baking paper, fill with baking beads or uncooked rice and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the paper and beads and reduce the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Bake for 5 minutes, or until golden. Cool.

4. Cook the apples, butter, half the sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a saucepan, covered, over low heat for 15 minutes, or until soft. Uncover and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Allow to cool.

5. Whisk together the eggs, cream, remaining sugar and vanilla extract. Spread the apple over the pastry, then pour on the cream mixture. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the custard has half set.

6. To make the crumble, mix the flour, sugar and walnuts and rub in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the custard and bake for 15 minutes. Cool.
