Ingredients

  • 8 eating apples , peeled, cored and cubed
  • 6 tbsp Carnation caramel cream (this comes in a can or a squeezy tube)
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g porridge oat
  • 50g cold butter , diced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the apples into a saucepan with a splash of water, cover, then cook over a high heat for 4-5 mins, stirring now and then until just soft. Stir in 3 tbsp of the caramel, then tip into small ovenproof dishes. Dot small spoonfuls of caramel cream over the apples until only 1 tbsp is left.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the flour and oats together, then rub in the butter with your fingers until you have a crumbly mixture. Stir in the remaining caramel, then scatter over the apples. Bake for 18-20 mins until golden and crisp on top.
