Apple betty with oats

About this recipe: So here's my take on the classic American dish. Really is just a slightly deconstructed apple crumble. I've also added oats to make the topping gorgeously comforting and a little extra cinnamon just to help make this dish extra warming for the winter.

Serves: 4 

  • 4 Granny Smith apples, cored and roughly chopped
  • 100g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 100g demerara sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 80g oats

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 160 C Fan / Gas 4.
  2. Put the apples into your baking dish and spread them around.
  3. In a mixing bowl, rub the flour and butter together with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and cinnamon and mix again with your fingers. Add in the oats and mix again.
  4. Tip the mixture over the apples covering all of them (don't worry about being tidy!) and if you like add an extra dusting of cinnamon.
  5. Place in the middle of the oven and bake for about 1/2 an hour or until the oats turn golden brown.
  6. Eat straightaway with custard or ice cream.


The Granny Smith apples hold together well during baking and give a tangy sweet but not overpowering. However, use Bramley apples if you prefer.
