I love bakes that can be created quickly, easily and using energy-efficient methods.

When I crave a flavour or a particular bake, I usually have a few shortcuts up my sleeve to make them more quickly than usual.

Here’s how to make a crushed-up cookie mug cake

Now I’ve gone one step further and created super quick and delicious Ad Bakes, so when you get a little peckish in the advert breaks, you can whip up some tasty treats – all using less energy than traditional bakes.

I care deeply about the environment and want to encourage smarter baking, such as using the microwave rather than the oven, and using a bit of elbow grease instead of the food processor, so I hope my Ad Bakes are a step in the right direction.

With that in mind, here’s my recipe for a toffee apple mug crumble:

Easy toffee apple mug crumble that you can make during the GBBO ad break

Ingredients (makes 1):

1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced

1 tbsp soft brown sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the crumble:

30g butter (2 tbsp), chilled

1 tbsp soft brown sugar

2 heaped tbsp plain flour

15g pecan nuts, chopped

Chop the apple into small pieces and place into a mug, along with the brown sugar and cinnamon.

Cover with cling film and pierce a few times.

Pop in the microwave for one minute.

While the apple is cooking, make the crumble. Rub the butter into the brown sugar and flour until it clumps together to look like crumble. Stir in the pecan nuts.

When the apple is done, pour any excess liquid out of the mug, then top with the pecan crumble and microwave for 1 minute until cooked through.

Allow to cool briefly and then your autumnal delight is ready.

Energy saving top tip: You don’t need to pre-cook the apple on the hob or turn the oven on to make a delicious crumble – make use of your microwave to save lots of time and energy.
