Oaty nutty apple crumble
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
A brilliant cheat's dessert, this fruit bake is super-quick and its store cupboard ingredients make it thrifty too
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a bowl, mix the apples with the lemon juice, cinnamon, 1 tbsp of flour, 15g of butter and 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Place in a small glass baking dish, cover with cling film and cook in the microwave for 5 mins at 600W, or slightly less time if you have a higher wattage.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, rub the remaining flour, butter, sugar, oats and nuts with your fingers to a crumble-like but chunky texture.
- STEP 3
Spoon the cooked apples into an ovenproof dish. Scatter over the crumble and bake in the oven for 20 mins until crisp. Serve with ice cream or crème fraîche.
