Apple and oat crumble
I have a young RedLove apple tree in the garden and this was the first season it produced any fruit – all in all, 5 apples! I decided to make a good old-fashioned crumble as I thought the apples’ red-coloured flesh would make the pudding look attractive. I wasn’t disappointed. And the flavour, combined with the oat crumble, was so wonderful that I can’t wait for the next crop!
6 medium-sized eating apples (for example, Red Love or Cox’s apples)
75 g gluten-free oats (⅞ cup gluten-free rolled oats)
75 g (⅔ stick) unsalted butter*
50 g (¼ cup) xylitol
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
2. To make the crumble topping, put the butter, oats and xylitol into a bowl and rub them with your fingertips until they have combined and become wet crumbs.
3. Peel, core and cut the apples into small pieces and place in an 18 cm (7 inch) round glass or earthenware dish.
4. Sprinkle the crumble over the apples.
5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
If you want to make the apple crumble dairy-free and vegan, use non-dairy vegetable margarine instead of butter.
Serve hot or cold, on its own or with pouring cream, vanilla cream or custard.
