  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cores removed
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 250g punnet strawberries, hulled, sliced
  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 60g butter, chilled, cubed
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Ice cream, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Lightly grease a 6-cup capacity ovenproof dish.
  2. Slice apples thinly and place into saucepan over medium heat. Add caster sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Cover. Cook for five minutes, or until apples are just tender but still hold their shape. Remove from heat. Add in berries and stir. Spoon mixture into ovenproof dish.
  3. Rub butter into flour until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in oats, brown sugar, breadcrumbs, cinnamon and honey. Spoon crumble over fruit. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until crumble is golden. Serve with ice cream.
