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

really nice cake, i used marmalade instead of apricot jam and instead of golden syrup i melted some more marmalade but only a small amount and it works out fine. I also found it gives the crumble more flavor.

Mine is just in the oven, though I must have done something wrong as the texture of my crumble was basically a flapjack, there is no way i would have been able to 'sprinkle' it over the apples! I cut back on the amount of sugar in this too, as it seemed as though it would be over sweet. The proof will be in the tasting!

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!

Went down a treat! My hubby loved the crumble topping! Will have to make it again sometime.

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.
