Bramley apple crumble in a bowlBramley apple recipes ideas

Bramley apples are British classics, grown here and perfect for tangy recipes. We asked BritMums influencers to share their top dishes at our #BramleyApples Twitter chat. Below are their favourite recipes for tasty breakfasts, easy lunches, savoury dinners, and delectable desserts — with ideas for everything from kugel to pizza to stews, soups and tarts.

Bramley apples are ideal for cooking – they produce a melt-in-your-mouth texture and don’t lose their distinctive tangy flavour in cooking the way other apple varieties can. Phil Vickery calls Bramley the “the King of British apples” and Delia Smith calls herself “quite definitely a Bramley lover”. With 205 years of heritage, they are definitely the cook’s choice.
