  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (180 if using fan-forced).

  2. Grease a large oven-proof baking dish with butter and set aside.

  3. Place the peeled and sliced apples into a medium saucepan with the water, caster sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.

  4. Bring to a low simmer for 5-10 minutes or until just softened. Drain off the excess liquid.

  5. Place the stewed apples into the baking dish.

  6. Sprinkle over the frozen blueberries. 

  7. 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.

  8. Sprinkle the crumble over the apple and place into the preheated oven.

  9. Cook for 35 minutes or until the crumble is golden and crunchy.
