  • 5 large apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup (250g) water
  • 1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
  • 2 tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 500 g frozen blueberries
  • 1 1/3 cups (120g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 50 g plain flour
  • 115 g butter


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (180 if using fan-forced).
  • Grease a large oven-proof baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • Place the peeled and sliced apples into a medium saucepan with the water, caster sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Bring to a low simmer for 5-10 minutes or until just softened. Drain off the excess liquid.
  • Place the stewed apples into the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle over the frozen blueberries. 
  • To make the crumble, place the oats, brown sugar, plain flour and butter into a bowl. Use your fingers to squeeze and break up the lumps of butter until crumbs have formed and all of the oats and flour are completely combined with the butter.
  • Sprinkle the crumble over the apple and place into the preheated oven.
  • Cook for 35 minutes or until the crumble is golden and crunchy.
