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.

Loved the topping. Not so keen on the base.
Enjoyed by all though.

Lovely recipe! I used half Bramley apples and half eating apples. Didn't have apricot jam so I used a raspberry and redcurrant jam but only used half the amount. The whole family loved it. Thanks!

Great flavours however I went horribly wrong along the way somewhere as the apple section was swimming in liquid once cooked. :(

Making extra crumble is a must - I did 50% extra and only just had enough!

I made this when I had a hole basket of grandma's apples and I didn't want to make a regular apple cake or pie - this was a very good replacment. Everybody loved it!

Perfect. If it was possible to give 6 stars I would. Will make again but with blackberry jam, made from your flexible jam recipe.

This was great for using up left over apples that I would have thrown away.
I didn't use the jam as was worried would be too sweet.
I added a sprinkle of mixed spice on the apples before the crumble topping.
The crumble was lovely with cream and would definatley do this again. very moreish.

I've made this loads of times now, and it keeps on getting better. Our favourite pudding by far - the chewiness of the 'crumble', the jam and juice with the apples....sigh. A must-serve after a big roast. I absolutely love it, one of those simple recipes that is easy to do but registers high on the impressometer! Goes a treat with pouring cream, but we'll definitely try it with the ice cream.

Gosh this was delicious, the hot chewy oats with vanilla ice cream were fantastic.

The orange worked well with the apple. I have done this before with cooking apples - squeeze in an orange and a lemon into the apple and sugar mixture. It really adds to the taste.

Tastes great and very easy. I made it with Golden Delicious apples and served with proper homemade custard. Went down a treat!

Amazing! Il never make normal apple crumble again.
The topping could just be a flapjack recipe but the apples just make it delicious.
Its a stoke of genius to use apricot jam with the apples!

Absolutely delicious! I've made this many times and always get positive comments! I like to use a little more golden syrup too. Scrummy!

Great, thank you.

I make it with Golden delicious apples, and instead of muscovado sugar, I use dark brown sugar, and instead of golden syrup I use honey.

Always popular with my kids, takes me (a single father) about 45 minutes to make.

Totally Scrummy !! Did not use the apricot jam but soaked a big handful of sultanas in orange juice and added them to the apples with an extra pinch of cinnamon sprinkled over :o)

The second time I made it I made half as much again of the crumble topping and added 3 tablespoons of golden syrup as the chewy clusters were a big hit the first time round, highly recommend to others to try this recipe !!

Heavenly! I've been trying out lots of different crumble toppings for ages and I can safely say I will stick with this one....All guests happy...

This is such a delicious take on apple crumble. Very very easy to do with a superb result. Absolutely delicious - topping comes out crunchy, chewy and soft in places - fantastic. Definately make again.

I have made a similar crumble many times but substitute a light olive oil for the butter and find that just as effective and certainly more healthy
A crumble is such a wonderful way of persuading children to eat more fruit
And here a lovely recipe certainly
