Just what I was looking for... a nice simple Apple Crumble recipe that uses oats!
If you've got an aga its even easier to cook the apples - just put them into and oven proof dish with a little water and sugar and place them in the baking oven for a minimum of 4hrs - they come out absolutely perfect and do not need to be watched while they cook so you can get on with your other preparations
Great recipe, went down a treat. the family loved it.
amazing :)
i think you should maybe put a bit more detail on the method as some of us slower ones need more instruction. my still was delsih though! thanks (:
How much more details can there be, it was easy to recipe to follow.
I completely agree there are details. Apple crumble is an easy recipe to make and this one is very good!
Perhaps its best to let someone else try this, it is one of the easiest recipies to follow.
Please tell me what you mean by cooking apples, I am in Florida and have never seen any. I am from England and used to using Bramley apples for desserts.
Eating apples do not work as well.
quick and simple, oats added that different texture too!
What a lovely recipe my whole family loved it! Absolutely delicious with a heap of custard or icecream!
Also, delicious to replace half the flour with ground almonds.
Very VERY scrummy recipe, which resulted in a big thumbs-up from my Apple Crumble loving hubby! He especially liked the addition of the Oats. I suspect I shall be making this again and again. Thank you for posting!
Apologies if someone has already replied to you MMerci. Cooking apples are quite tart and on the large side. You wouldn't want to eat them without cooking first as you'd probably end up with stomach ache. If you can't find them in Florida, try substituting 5 med Granny Smith. I haven't made this recipe but I assume the tartness of the apples will balance out the sweetness of the crumble. I make a granny smith apple pie and I love the contrast of tastes. I think Bramleys would be too sweet but I know that they are a trad'l English pie filling. Hope this helped.
i always make my apple crumble with red eating apples as i find the cooking apples too tart. if you do that you dont need to add sugar to the apples.
the crumble is so much tastier made with brown sugar as opposed to natural white.I also like adding corn flakesto give a more crunchy texture.if you all like crumbles or apple pies then try the Dorset Apple Cake.Its simply divine.

Just download the PDF and print......THANKS!
