Oaty Apple Crumble

Serves ~6
  • 1.5kg eating apples
  • 4tbsp sugar or jam(give sweetness with flavour)
  • Juice of one orange or about half a glass of orange juice
  • zest of said orange if using
  • 280g oats
  • 200g plain flour
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 200g butter
  • 200g light muscovado sugar
Peel, core and slice up the apple and put them into a buttered oven dish (I like to use a large pyrex bowl so I can see the apples cooking)with the sweetener and juice, mix it all together. Mix the dry ingredients together and add the butter in pieces and rub in. Stir in the sugar. Sprinkle the mix over the apples and bake at 180 degrees for 35-40mins. Great with ice cream or loads of custard (if making Bird's custard add a bit of vanilla for extra flavour).

I love using different kinds of jam to vary the taste. You can also add berries of different kinds berries and fruit. Black currants in particular work well. Personally I like a thick layer of flapjack topping but to each their own.
