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

I made this tonight. I had to substitute the apricot jam with orange marmalade, the fresh orange juice with juice from a carton, the light muscovado sugar with demerara sugar - as that's all I had in the cupboard! I added about 2 tbsp of Pasas Moscatel (moscatel raisins) to the apples and WOW it is simply devine. OH loved it and I will certainly be making this again. I halved all the ingredients as there are only 2 of us but it still made loads. Served with cream naughty but nice.

With custard it's sickly... with double cream- heaven.

Lovely! Topping is delicious. Have made this many times. The apples need to be cut very thinly. If following the cooking times the fruit will have a bit of bite. Cooking the apples for 10 to15 mins covered in the oven before adding the topping helps if you want softer fruit.

Family favourite. I've made this several times now with different fruit fillings, depending on what is in the garden or freezer, and serve with hot custard. It is superb every time. Handy to make double the mixture and keep one portion in the freezer in a bag, next to a bag of prepared and frozen fruit filling. Easy then to defrost both and put in a dish in the oven at very short notice.

Can I make this ahead and freeze?
