- 4 Granny Smith apples
• juice of ½ lemon
• ¾ cup caster sugar
• 100g cold unsalted butter, diced
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• ¾ cup plain flour
• ½ tsp baking powder
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• ¾ cup rolled oats
• vanilla bean ice cream, to serve
1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Peel the apples and cut into wedges, then toss in lemon juice. Put the caster sugar in a large frying pan over a high heat and cook to a mid-brown caramel. Add the apples, 25g butter and cinnamon, then cook for 7 minutes, stirring often, until lightly softened. Transfer to a 1.5L baking dish.
2 Combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar and remaining butter in a food processor and pulse until a coarse crumb forms. Mix in the oats, then scatter over the apple mixture. Bake for 35 minutes, until golden on top and crisp. Serve warm with ice cream.
