Earlier this year we teamed up with TV chef, Phil Vickery, to launch the Great Bramley Bake In – a nationwide search for home cooks best Bramley apple dishes. We called on the great British public to enter their favourite Bramley apple recipes for the chance to win a luxury weekend stay at a top cookery school, or a runner’s up prize of £100 of shopping vouchers.
As well as entering via the Bramley Facebook page www.facebook.com/bramleyapple, you could also vote for your favourite recipes. The competition closed to entrants on 28 February and the judges selected the six best dished for the shortlist:
The public voted for their favourite from the six and crowned Bramley, Parsnip & Shropshire Blue Tart by Mary Graham as the overall winner – congratulations Mary!
Phil Vickery has also developed a series of six of his own mouth-watering recipes, four sweet and two savoury, which show off the versatility and sublime tangy taste of the Bramley…
Bramley Apple Spiced Meringue Pie
Toffee Pecan Bramley Apple Crumbles
Chocolate, Caramel and Bramley Apple Brioche Bake
Bramley Apple Cheesecake

The Bramley is rightly recognised by professional chefs and home cooks alike as the best apple for cooking.
Grown only in Britain, the Bramley’s unique qualities make it one of the most versatile ingredients, equally at home in a savoury stir fry or a traditional apple pie.
Here you will find more than100 different dishes to cook with Bramleys, some taking as little as five minutes. You can also find out more about the history of the Bramley and its health properties and sign up for seasonal inspirations from our monthly e-newsletter.
