I tend to make this with apples, but if you’ve pears, raspberries or strawberries going spare then chuck them in too! You can experiment with lots of different fruit combinations, and also with sloshing in some apple juice, or apple-and-raspberry juice if you happen to have some about. With about 7 big apples (peeled and cored, of course), this makes enough for about 8 people – or some can be frozen or just kept in the fridge for having the rest of the week.

The best dessert to make one day and have in fridge for a week.


190g / 1.5 cups flour
150g / 0.75 cups white sugar + 100g / 0.5 cups
160g / 0.75g demerara sugar
1 tsp cinnamon + 2 tsp
85g / 1 cup oats
225g butter
2 tbsp lemon juice
Fruit, chopped


  1. Butter a roasting tin and put in the fruit, 100g sugar, lemon juice, and 2 tsp cinnamon.
  2. Beat the rest of the ingredients and crumble over the top of the fruit.
  3. Bake at 170oC for 1 hour.
