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.

Simple and quick to make, this was very nice indeed and everyone had second helpings! I didn't have any fresh oranges so just used some orange juice from a carton and threw in half a punnet of raspberries that I had in the fridge. I also used runny honey instead of golden syrup. I will try with fresh orange and syrup next time.

This was a change from a normal crumble and was ok but I wouldn't make it again. There were 7 of us and everyone said they preferred a traditional crumble.

Mage this for the first time today. Used damson jam oj and added some ground almonds. It was delicious! Went beautifully with creme fraiche, custard and ice cream too (not all at once!)

Used variety of apples - Braeburn, Cox, Golden Delicious and Bramley and then just did what the recipe said (with soya marg instead of butter so it was dairy free). The result is delicious, a lovely twist on the old apple crumble favourite.

I added black cherry jam and some tropical fruit juice to the apples and used Raymond Blanc's recipe for the crumble and it was delicious!

Lovely recipe, liked that you don't put sugar in with the apples, we've enjoyed it cold for a few days after too, makes loads!

This recipe churned out a little too much apple mixture (though, curiously, just the right amount of crumble) so next time I won't make quite so much. I replaced the butter with coconut oil to keep it vegan-friendly which worked very well. This is criminally sweet (particularly since we had it with a scoop of vanilla Swedish Glace) but that's how we like our puds! Someone with less of a sweet tooth might want to reduce the jam or sugar, or possibly use tart cooking apples instead of eaters.

All in all, this went down exceptionally well here and will probably end up being my go-to crumble recipe!

Delicious! I halved the sugar amount in the crumble the second time, as it didn't really need so much.

Followed the recipe exactly but found the ratio of fruit to crumble was too heavy on the crumble side, and didn't experience the 'flapjack' experience. Will stick to my usual recipe next time.

I didn't think I needed another crumble recipe until I tried this. Followed the recipe for everything (except the jam) and it was delicious.

Tasted good with a home made custard! I used one large Bramley apple and one eating apple plus frozen berries. The topping was a little too cinnamon-ish for us so will cut down next time. may also try some whole meal flower for different texture. Some roughly chopped almonds on top were delicious for added crunch, our 5 year old ate them off the crumble while it was cooling.

I halved this recipe because otherwise my family of 4 would have a normal portion and I know I would polish off the rest! It is so delicious.

This is my ultimate apple crumble recipe. It tastes great especially with ice-cream or custard.

I made this along with a few other dessert at Christmas. Let's just say I didn't even get a chance to try it, it was so popular! Apparently it was stunning so i will def be making again!! And so quick and easy - It has made it into my book of favourite recipes.

Lovely with ice cream straight out of the oven, and even nicer a few days later drowned in custard. I used rose jam instead of apricot, which gave a unique middle eastern flavour to a typically British dessert. Winner!
