Apple Crisp

I should be thinking about lighter food such as salad and the summer fruits coming into the shops but its pouring with rain as I write this, the weather we have had for the last week or so is more like November than April and post Easter I still have somewhat of a sweet craving!  I am not really a crumble fan so I like to make this crisp, I don’t know if with the addition of oats I like to feel I’m being slightly more healthy! The oats do make a crisper, lighter topping than traditional crumble. Its super fast to put together,  melting the butter makes the mixing of the topping makes really quick, in no time you have a delicious warm dessert.

If you want an alternative apple dessert that’s equally delicious as this Apple Crisp, try this recipe for Grandma’s Apple Pie.

Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
Fruity, warming dessert
Ingredients
  • 500 gram peeled and chopped Apples, I use a mix of cooking and eating apples
  • 100 gram Raspberries, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar (unrefined if you have it)
  • 100 gram Porridge oats
  • 100 gram Flour
  • 100 gram Light brown muscovado sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 100 gram Butter, melted
Instructions
  1. Pre- heat oven to 190 C, 375 F, Gas mark 5.
  2. Put apples and raspberries into a baking dish, I use a glass pyrex one.
  3. Sprinkle with the tablespoon of caster sugar.
  4. Mix the porridge oats, flour, muscovado sugar and cinnamon together.
  5. Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix until its combined. The topping will look quite crumbly.
  6. Spoon the topping onto the fruit.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes or until the topping is golden and the fruit bubbling and soft.
  8. Serve warm or cool, either way ice- cream is a great accompaniment.

  1. I love crispy desserts, but is there any lighter way of making this?
