Ingredients:

  • 800g apples, cored (4 medium apples)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
Crumble topping
  • 4 Weet-Bix™, crushed
  • 1/4 cup whole spelt or wholemeal flour
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup margarine (60g)

Method:

  1. Cut apples into 1 cm thin slices. Turn on oven to 180°C.
  2. While oven pre-heats, place water, spices, and apple slices into a large oven-proof skillet. Bring to the boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring a few times, until apples are soft but not falling apart.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the flour, sugar and margarine in a medium bowl, and mix with a large spoon until smooth. Add crushed Weet-Bix and continue to stir – using clean hands if necessary – to evenly coat Weet-Bix in the mixture and create a crumble.
  4. Remove apples from stove, stir through lemon juice and sultanas. Scatter the crumble mixture evenly over the apple filling.
  5. Bake crumble for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Cool slightly before serving warm, or make in advance and serve at room temperature.

Tips:

  • Top with a dollop of Greek yoghurt to serve, if you wish.
  • We left the peel on our apples but you can remove it before slicing.
  • If you don’t have a oven-proof skillet: cook apples in a saucepan then carefully transfer to a 20cm round or square baking dish, before topping with crumble and baking.
