Apple flapjack crumble

I always keep an eye open for new apple recipes.  I get apples in my vegetable box almost every week, but I’m not really that keen on them raw.  I tend to do a lot of stewed apple, and also some apple crumbles, to use them up.  I came across the following recipe for apple flapjack crumble on the BBC Good Food site and thought I would give it a go.


1.1 kg eating apples, such as Coxes
3-4 tbsp apricot jam
juice 1 large orange
For the crumble
140g porridge oats
100g plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100g butter
100g light muscovado sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup

As always I made a change or two.  I used strawberry jam instead of apricot which worked well, and I had a squishy pear hanging around so I put that in too.

The pudding was tasty – it really did taste like apple with flapjack on top.  It was maybe a little stodgy which some people may not like, although it didn’t bother me particularly.

Its a nice change from the traditional crumble topping, but tastes better than just adding oats to a standard topping.

I think this one will go into my repertoire, it would be a nice pud to do when family are visiting, and I have to confess I’ve been eating it for breakfast with yoghurt.  Apple, oats, sugar, hey its almost cereal anyway!
