Prep: 20 mins | Cooking time: 45 mins | Serves: 10

Ingredients

2kg green apples, peeled, cored and cut into thick wedges
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise or 1 Tsp. vanilla bean paste
2 cups EQUAL SPOONFUL
2 Tsp. cinnamon
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
60g butter or margarine, softened
Ice-cream to serve, optional

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Put the apples, vanilla and one cup of EQUAL SPOONFUL into a large pan, add ½ cup water, cover and cook over a medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until just soft. Spoon into a 23 x 33cm capacity ovenproof dish or evenly among 10 individual small ramekins or serving dishes.

2. Put the second cup of EQUAL SPOONFUL, cinnamon, flour and rolled oats into a bowl and mix to combine. Rub in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.

3. Scatter the crumble mixture over the top of the apple and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is crisp and brown. Serve with ice cream.

**CHEF’S TIP: Replace half the apple with rhubarb for an apple rhubarb crumble.
