  • 1 1/2 lb cooking apples
  • 1 tablespoon light soft brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • margarine for greasing


  • 3 oz porridge oats
  • 2 oz light soft brown sugar
  • 1 oz wholemeal flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 oz margarine or butter melted


  • Heat the oven to 190°C (375°F) Gas 5.
  • 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.
  • Make the topping: mix the oats, sugar, flour and salt in a bowl. Stir in the melted margarine with a knife until thoroughly mixed.
  • 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.
