Whole Apple Crumbles


  • 8 English apples
  • 100g Claybrooke rolled oats
  • 130g self-raising flour
  • 65g plain flour
  • 2tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g butter chopped
  • 150g brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Combine the flours and cinnamon in a food processor. Add the butter and process in short bursts until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the brown sugar and oats, use fingers to mix until crumble almost comes together.
  3. Cut 1cm off the top of the apples. Remove the core. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the apple to about halfway, leaving a 1cm border around the edge. Place the apples into the baking dish, press crumble mixture (about 3 tablespoons) into the well and evenly over the apples.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until apples are just tender and the crumble is golden.
  5. Serve warm and dusted with cinnamon and sugar or cold as a mid-afternoon treat
