Even my fussiest grandchildren love this version of one of their favourite desserts. You can add more or different spices depending on your personal or family taste.
¼ cup water
1 cups wholemeal flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup grated (or dessicated) coconut
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
50 gms melted butter or margarine
1 Peel, core and slice the apples into a saucepan
2 Sprinkle the sugar overthe apple slices and pour the water over the top
3 Cook gently on the stove top until apples are tender, not mushy
4 Mix the flour sugar and butter or oil together to make a crumbly mixture. (if it is too dry add more butter or margarine, if too moist add more flour)
5 Put the cooked apple mixture into an ovenware dish
6 Spread the crumble mixture evenly over the apples
7 Bake at 180 degrees c ( 350 degrees f) for 30 minutes or until the crumble topping is browned.
Note:You can use ground ginger, a mixture of cinnamon and nutmeg, cinnamon and ground cloves or any combination of spices that you prefer. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
