Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the breadcrumbs, and mix well.
Peel, quarter, and core the apples. Cut each quarter into slices and place in a bowl. Add the sugar, cinnamon, mixed spice, lemon zest, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, and vanilla extract, and mix well.
Put half the apple mixture into the baking dish. Cover with half the breadcrumbs, then put in the rest of the apples and top with the remaining breadcrumbs.
Bake for 35–45 minutes, checking after 35 minutes. If it is getting too brown, reduce the oven temperature to 160°C (325°F/Gas 3) and cover with greaseproof paper. It is cooked when the crumbs are golden brown and the apples are soft. Serve warm.
