There are not many desserts more comforting on a long winter night than a good old apple crumble.
The juicy apples and crunchy crumble combine perfectly to provide a mixture a good refuelling and a delicious treat.
They have given their crumble a unique ‘Irish twist’ with the addition of oaty shortbread.
They say on the video description: “Crumble has to be one of the easiest desserts to prepare and it is extremely easy to adapt, using whatever fruit is in season.
“You can vary the ingredients for the crumble mix itself, I sometimes use wholemeal flour and nuts, though I’m a complete stickler for using jumbo oats as they really give the dessert a crunchy nutty texture.”
Irish Oaty Apple Crumble recipe
150g plain flour
150g jumbo oat flakes
175g light brown Sugar
200g cold butter, cut into pieces
Single Cream, to serve
For the filling:
600g apple, cut into chunks
1 tbsp plain flour
60g brown sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F), Gas mark 5. Place the flour, oat flakes, brown sugar and butter in a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub all the ingredients together until it resembles chunky breadcrumbs.
In a large baking tin, toss the apples with the flour, sugar and lemon juice until combined. Add the crumble mix on top of the filling and spread over the top until everything is evenly covered. Bake in the oven for 35–40 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden brown and the fruit is soft and bubbling beneath. Serve in generous portions with a drizzle of fresh cream.
