Fabulous!! I substituted ginger jam for raspberry and used frozen raspberries. I also replaced topping with simple flapjack recipe (100g butter, 100g sugar, 1tblsp syrup, 150g oats) and cooked in oven for 30 minutes (ish).

I made this without the ginger compote and also didn't bother grilling it. The filling was hot so I just topped it with the cereal and served. Quck and tasty.

This was really disappointing. I'm sure it was healthy, but filling was dull and watery and the topping is just a pile of dry breakfast cereal.

I have made this recipe so many times now and it turns out great each time. Great for a dinner party as it can be made ahead and just warmed up at the end. To keep the super healthy tag I serve with half fat creme fraiche!

I loved the combination of ginger with fruit and served it with thick dairy custard. The crumble topping is a nice variation on a theme and went down well with the family. It is very easy to make but keep an eye on it under the grill!

Really easy and the topping worked very well. Instead of jam I used mincemeat with just the apples plus a little sugar. Delicious!
