Gâche Mélée is a traditional Guernsey apple dessert and is a favourite with locals. It’s great eaten hot or cold and with a dollop of Guernsey cream or custard.
- Heat oven to 150°C.
- Rub the butter or suet into the flour until like breadcrumbs. Add all other dry ingredients, apple and mix well.

- Sprinkle the 2 tbsp sugar on top prior to cooking – this makes a crunchier top.
- Place in oven and bake for 2 hours until golden brown.
