This is a great way of using up leftover apples in your fruit bowl. I’ve added oats for that extra crunchiness and a little roughage. I’ve also used less sugar for the topping as is traditionally used.
For the crumble:
150g plain flour
70g rolled oats
80g brown sugar
130g vegan margarine or butter
For the filling:
350g apples, some peeled, cored and cut into 1cm pieces
30g brown sugar
1 tbsp plain flour
A generous pinch of ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Place the flour, oats and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of margarine or butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.
Butter a 24cm/9in ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.
Serve with custard.
