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

  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.

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.

I made this crumble and really likes the trick of adding orange juice and jam- we used damson jam and the fruit tasted delicious. I used honey instead of golden syrup but we found the crumble topping too sweet. Next time I would use less sugar in the crumble but that may just be personal taste? A nice easy recipe. Ticks all the boxes :)
