Recipe: Apple and apricot crumble

This is a family favourite. We love the combination of crunchy oats and sweet fruit.


1.1kg eating apples
4-6 ripe apricots
Juice of one orange
140g porridge oats
100g plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100g butter
100g light muscovado sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup


Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. De-stone and thinly slice the apricots, then peel, core and thinly slice the apples and mix with the orange juice. Spread evenly over a lightly buttered 1.5-litre ovenproof dish.

Mix the oats, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the butter in small chunks and rub in gently. Stir in the sugar and rub in again. Drizzle over the syrup, mixing with a knife so it forms small clumps. Sprinkle evenly over the apples and bake for 30-35 mins until the juices from the apples start to bubble up. Cool for 10 mins, then serve with custard, or double cream.
