Spicy apple crunch

The best type of cooking apples to use are Bramleys, which reduce to a soft pulp when cooked.

ingredients

serves 4
750 g (1 1/2 lb) cooking apples
1 tablespoon light soft brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons cold water
margarine, for greasing

topping

75 g (3 oz) porridge oats
50 g (2 oz) light soft brown sugar
25 g (1 oz) wholemeal flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
40 g (1 1/2 oz) margarine or butter, melted

method

1. Heat the oven to 190°C (375°F) Gas 5.

2. Grease a shallow 1.5 litre (2 1/2 pint) ovenproof dish thoroughly with margarine. Peel, quarter and core the apples, then slice them thinly. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon. Layer the apple slices in the dish, sprinkling the spiced sugar mixture in between. Sprinkle over the water.

3. Make the topping: mix the oats, sugar, flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the melted margarine with a knife until thoroughly mixed.

4. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes, until the apples are very tender and the topping is crisp and browned. Serve hot or warm, straight from the dish.
