Cranberry and apple crumble pie

One of out favourite desserts is a crumble, so thought I'd try out this recipe as it's a crumble pie.

175g oats
150g plain flour
125g brown sugar
1/2tspn bicarbonate of soda
175g butter or margarine, melted
2 large cooking apples, peeles, cored and sliced
75g dried cranberries
1 tspn cinnamon
1 tbspn lemon juice

Preheat oven 190C/375F/gas5

Grease a 20cm springform cake tin or metal pie dish.

Mix together the oats, flour, sugar and bicarb. in a bowl then stir in the melted fat. Mix together well.

Press 2/3 of this mix into the bottom and sides of the tin or dish.

Mix the rest of the ingredients together - the apples, cranberries lemon juice and cinnamon. Spoon this into the crumble base keeping away from the sides of the tin or dish.
Starting at the edge and working into the middle, cover with the rest of the crumble. Then firm around the edges to seal the top to the sides.
Bake for 30 mins till golden.



What a great idea this is! I love a crumble topping, so having a pie of it is even better! You could, of course, use any fruit you fancied.

That sounds a good idea - did it slice as well as pastry or did you have to scoop it like a crumble?

BTW - did you see that I'd invited you to have a go at Food Bloggers Unplugged, if you'd like to? The details are on my blog; I couldn't find an email address to contact you and let you know!

What a really, really lovely idea for a twist on a true pudding classic!

Suelle, it was difficult to cut, but I did manage to get it out as a slice, albeit a crumbly one!

Have seen about 'Food Bloggers unplugged' on your blog. Thank you for the invite and I'll do it asap.

I love the idea of a crumble pie - two of my favourite desserts in one and a great combo of fruits. Yum!
