  • Recipe serves:4
  • Preparation Time15 Minutes
  • Cooking Time15 Minutes


  • 750g Apples
  • 100g Astra
  • 50-75g Sugar
  • 50g Dried brown breadcrumbs
  • Whipped Cream for decoration


  • Peel the apples and cut into thin slices.
  • Cook gently in half the Astra until soft, adding sugar to taste.
  • Mix the sugar and breadcrumbs and cook until brown in the remaining Astra. Use a frying pan so the crumbs brown evenly.
  • Allow to cool in the frying pan.
  • Put a layer of the crisp breadcrumbs at the bottom of a bowl, then the apples, then a topping of the crumbs.
  • Decorate with whipped cream and serve on to the Avurudu lunch table as a wonderful dessert.
  • Note: For cream that is very white and light in texture, whisk thick cream lightly, then gradually whisk in a little on top of the milk.

    Chef’s Tip:

    Use more crumbs and have a layer of crumbs in the centre. Add lemon juice and a little lemon rind to the apples.
