Sweetening the apples with apricot jam and orange juice makes it twice as fruity and adding a little syrup to the oaty crumble makes great little chewy clusters

Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and mix with the jam and orange juice. Spread evenly over a buttered 1.5-litre ovenproof dish, not too deep.
  2. Mix the oats, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the butter in small chunks and rub in gently. Stir in the sugar and rub in again. Drizzle over the syrup, mixing with a knife so it forms small clumps. Sprinkle evenly over the apples and bake for 30-35 mins until the juices from the apples start to bubble up. Cool for 10 mins, then serve with custard, cream or ice cream.

I made this tonight. I had to substitute the apricot jam with orange marmalade, the fresh orange juice with juice from a carton, the light muscovado sugar with demerara sugar - as that's all I had in the cupboard! I added about 2 tbsp of Pasas Moscatel (moscatel raisins) to the apples and WOW it is simply devine. OH loved it and I will certainly be making this again. I halved all the ingredients as there are only 2 of us but it still made loads. Served with cream naughty but nice.

With custard it's sickly... with double cream- heaven.

Lovely! Topping is delicious. Have made this many times. The apples need to be cut very thinly. If following the cooking times the fruit will have a bit of bite. Cooking the apples for 10 to15 mins covered in the oven before adding the topping helps if you want softer fruit.

Family favourite.
I've made this several times now with different fruit fillings, depending on what is in the garden or freezer, and serve with hot custard. It is superb every time.
Handy to make double the mixture and keep one portion in the freezer in a bag, next to a bag of prepared and frozen fruit filling.
Easy then to defrost both and put in a dish in the oven at very short notice.

Can I make this ahead and freeze?

really nice cake, i used marmalade instead of apricot jam and instead of golden syrup i melted some more marmalade but only a small amount and it works out fine. I also found it gives the crumble more flavor.

Mine is just in the oven, though I must have done something wrong as the texture of my crumble was basically a flapjack, there is no way i would have been able to 'sprinkle' it over the apples! I cut back on the amount of sugar in this too, as it seemed as though it would be over sweet. The proof will be in the tasting!

The topping on this is delicious and loved the apricot jam in with the apples ( which I baked in the oven for 20 minutes before baking with the topping on)

This is my new favorite crumble topping for all crumbles! I used slightly less sugar and a little more syrup. Delicious.

I made my own filling of bramble apples and blackberries, but I did however use the flapjack crumble topping, this is the reason that I gave it a 4* rating as I couldn't comment on the filling. The crumble is nothing short of brilliant. Great crunchiness complimenting the soft fruit, with a slight sticky richness that creates a fancy edge to a warm and 100% satisfying pud. As I happened to use soft brown sugar it gave it a very nutty colour. In short.. I won't be going back to a basic crumble, if I can help it!!

Really lovely recipe, would have liked a bit more crumble so will increase this next time. The golden syrup is a must, we loved the chewy clusters in it, will put loads more in next time. Had it with ice cream - YUM!

For the first time ever, I have had to scrape the left overs into the bin. This did not go down at all well with my family.
