This comforting pud is so good it'll be gone before you can say crumble - and the bonus is it's also low-fat

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the oats, almonds, sesame seeds and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. In a small pan melt the butter with the honey then stir into the oats until it looks like rough breadcrumbs – you might need to use your hands.
  2. Put the apples, orange zest and juice and cardamom in a pan and cook for 10 mins until softened. Pick out the cardamom pods. Spoon into a baking dish, sprinkle with the sugar and scatter with the crumble mixture. Bake for about 40 mins until golden and crunchy. Serve with vanilla yogurt, ice cream or custard.

I too was disappointed with this recipe! I thought this would make a nice change. I was most disappointed with the topping - it fell apart. My apples were cooked, but then I probably stewed them a little longer than 10 mins. However we also didn't like the taste of the cardamom - will revert to my usual recipe next time.

Also very disappointed with this recipe. I was looking forward to it as a treat on Sunday, but found the apples didn't cook well and the crumble was bland, dry and didn't stick. I followed the recipe exactly.

Should have heeded your comments!! I too found this very disappointing - although my apples did cook. Topping did not stick together and tasted like cardboard.

Extremely disappointing. The apple didn't cook properly and the crumble didn't stick together - it was just like loose porridge oats.
Wouldn't recommend this recipe.
