I am a fan of a fruit crumble, and adding spice and cranberries is a simple way to make this classic dessert even tastier.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Fan 160ºC.
  2. Add the oats and milk to a large mixing bowl and leave to soak for 15 minutes.
  3. Sift the flour, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon and the rest of the spices over the soaked oats. Then add the sugar and mix thoroughly to form the crumble.
  4. In an ovenproof dish, add a layer of apple, using about a third of the slices. Then add about half the cranberries, evenly spread, and sprinkle with half the remaining cinnamon.
  5. Repeat step 4, and cover with the remaining apple slices.
  6. Evenly spread the crumble mix over the fruit and place in the oven for 20–25 minutes or until golden brown and the fruit is bubbling.
Serve hot with a spoonful of low-fat custard. For a sweeter flavour, use eating apples like Braeburns or Granny Smiths
