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.

Does anyone know if this will work if I substitute the butter for non dairy spread? I have a wheat and dairy intolerant friend!
Thanks

Thought this recipe was great!!! I doubled the crumble mixture and added vanilla essence instead of the cinnamon and it tasted divine. Loved the chewy bits, will definately be making this again!!! Used freshly squeezed orange juice and grated zest of both the orange and a lemon. Was a big hit with everybody!!!

Simple and delicious, a definate winner when My husband got home! I didn't add the orange juice (because I forgot!) and I used Bramley apples - it didn't matter. Would definately recommend.

I made this last weekend, without the jam and orange juice. Best ever crumble!

OMM So gorgeous! Very quick and easy. We didn't have apricot jam, so put a tblsp of sugar which was not needed cause it was SO SWEET! We also put in the orange rind in the crumble. SO delicious. The orange goes perfectly with it, and of course, custard :D

Nice pudding, adjusted the recipe slightly...doubled up the crumble mix and added more golden syrup to it. Lovely.

Made this tonight. Very easy to make. I used Bramley apples because that's all I had in but they worked very well. The best crumble I have ever eaten.

loved it!! took so many packets of oats so simple to Kosovo with me and didn't fancy them, used in the crumble, ideal!

absolutely delicious; a good alternative to traditional crumble which can be a little dry. I mixed in sultanas as well, and only did half the amounts. Will make again!

I made this for a family gathering for 7 adults and 3 kids. Compliments all round as everyone loved it - and not a scrap left at the end. Perfect!

I have done this recipe several times, I rarely use flour in the crumble, just increase the oats quantity or better yet use a very basic mueseli, you then get the oats with nuts and fruit! Marmalade works well instead of jam as well.

Great recipe - I used raspberry jam rather than apricot and it was lovely.

It turned out just great, fabulous taste and really so easy to prepare, I live in Ecuador S.America and so it was a fantastic treat for me to taste once again a lovely Hot apple crumble, Fantastic.

I have made this three times now - and LOVE it!! To be honest it is the flapjack topping that makes it - those chewy clusters are yummy! I did make one change - I used granny smiths apples for the sharpness and added a tin of pie filling for moistness (can be a bit dry otherwise. Gorgeous!!

Really nice crumble topping - I did find it a little sweet though - maybe needed to use sharper apples or less apricot jam.

I was really looking forward to trying this recipe but unfortuantly it didnt work for me.
I used eating apples but found them a little too sweet and would have prefered more of a tart apple or bramley
The topping was not too bad. It would make a good flapjack recipe
