Add a few flaked almonds to the crumble mixture of an extra special nutty flavour. Depending on the apples, you may need to add a teaspoon or two of sugar to the apples when you put them in the tin as cooking apples can be very sour. Remember the bigger the chunks of appel the longer they will take to cook through and go soft so try to cut them quite small (say the size of a 50 pence piece)
