Ok, so I know Snow White choked on an apple, but who wouldn’t like the fruit that lead them to meet their handsome prince (also, if she had cooked the apples in a delicious crumble she would have found them easier to eat!!)! This family pudding recipe is simple and can be popped in the oven while you eat your main. Its nice and soft for weaning or teething babies. The crumbly toasted oats contrast well with the soft, tart apple. The glace cherries add colour as well as sweetness to the apples (so you dont need to add more sugar to the fruit). Kids might like to help prepare the crumble by mixing the topping and spreading it out on top of the apple.
Suitable for freezing (Freeze at point 6, when the crumble is made but not cooked. After freezing, defrost overnight, then bake).
Preparation and cooking time: 1 hour
Serves 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children
For the topping:
50g porridge oats
100g plain flour
100g brown sugar
50g ground almonds
For the pie:
2 Bramley apples (approximately 400g when peeled and cored)
8 glace cherries
To serve; cream or custard.
- Pre heat the oven to 180C.
- In a mixing bowl, rub the butter and flour together until they look like breadcrumbs. Then mix in the oats, sugar and almonds. Set aside.
- Peel and core the apples. Then roughly cut in half and then slice (around 0.5Cm thick but this does not have to be perfect).
- Cut the cherries in half
- Put the apples and cherries into an ovenproof baking dish (dish size approximately 24 x 15Cm), spread them out evenly.
- Evenly spread the topping on the fruit.
- Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the topping is golden and the apples are tender. Serve with cream or custard.
