Apple and Cranberry Oat Crumble

December 27, 2019Sew White

I love apple crumble so I had to put a Christmas twist on it and make Apple and Cranberry Oat Crumble. Adding cranberries makes them extra special.

I have found a pack of cranberries in the fridge left over from Christmas and since all the roast dinners I am craving fruity things. Okay maybe not the healthiest food but it’s fruit and oats so that is positive at least. Until I added custard. I LOVE CUSTARD. Anyway back to the crumble.

I love the mix of apple and cranberries. They work a treat. Also if you have cranberries left over and don’t want to make them yet then pop them in the freezer. They won’t be the prettiest thing when they come out but they still work really well for dishes like this. Make sure they’re thawing out when you use them.

This is a great recipe for using up that pack of cranberries you have in the fridge you forgot to use over Christmas. Or if you had some and popped them in the freezer to use later. They freeze pretty well especially for something like this as they will be cooked and hidden so don’t need to look their best.

Ingredients

  • 150 g plain flour
  • 80 g rolled oats
  • 150 g unslted butter cut into cubes
  • 75 g golden caster sugar
  • 2 Bramley apples
  • 2 eating apples I used Royal Gala
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 150 g fresh cranberries or frozen

Instructions

  1. Put the flour, oats and sugar in a bowl and mix together. Add the butter in and rub them together with your fingers and thumb to create a crumble texture. Set aside until you're ready to cook.

  2. Peel and core the apples. Chop up the Bramley apples into small chunks and add to a sauce pan. Also add a tablespoons of lemon juice, 4 of water and 1 tablespoon of sugar. On a low heat soften the apples. As they start to soften add the chunks of the eating apples.

  3. When the apples have softened slightly but not falling apart take off the heat and stir in the cranberries. Allow it to cool.

  4. Preheat the oven to 180ºC fan.

  5. Divide the apple and cranberry mix among the 8 oven proof dishes. If you want to save them to cook them later, leave the crumble part aside and just add when you're ready to cook.

  6. Add the crumble topping and pop them in the oven for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.

I used these little Le Creuset casseroles to cook them in. They cook really well and perfect for serving too. Look very cute and a good size portion too.

    Apple crumble is one of my favorite desserts, and I love cranberries so this is absolutely A+ in my book! I can almost taste it with the custard! Will have to try it with the cranberries I froze last month!5 stars

    I bet that crumble is delicious Sisley. Cranberries are just brilliant for giving bursts of sourness that counteract the sweetness so well. I’ve just used the last of mine up in some cakes. Happy New Year.5 stars
