Oaty AppleBerry Crumble

We had to take Charles to an appointment this morning and on the way home I checked my phone for Facebook updates. A friend said she'd just popped an apple crumble in the oven. Immediately I fancied some Apple Crumble.
Once I had a little play with the boys, sorted Harrys nap and feed and got him to sleep I set to work on the crumble.

I love crumbles which have an oaty topping. We visited Pizza Hut a week and a half ago and I ordered what I expected to be an Apple Crumble with an Oaty topping but was left disappointed! Two tiny chunks of apple and a sponge topping. Shame on you Pizza Hut!
Since then I've had the craving for an Oaty Crumble.

Heres how I made my Oaty AppleBerry Crumble:

Ingredients:
Fruity base:
2fl oz water
2 Bramley Apples
Strawberries
Blueberries (I took mine from a pack of Sainsburys frozen Strawberry and Blueberry mix)
2 teaspoons of Golden Syrup
2 tablespoons of demerera sugar

Cook the apples along with the water and sugar. Once the apples start to get soft, add the strawberries and blueberries. Mix. Add the golden syrup and continue to mix until the apples are almost like a mush.

Then spoon into a oven proof bowl. Level out the top then prepare and add the topping.


Topping
1tbl spoon demerera sugar
150g oats
30g butter
100g crumble mix 
1 teaspoon of golden syrup

On a low heat, stir the oats, sugar and butter then add half of the crumble mix.
Stir until the oat start to brown then add to the top of the fruity base.
Level out then add the rest of the crumble mix. Then drizzle 1 teaspoon of golden syrup to the top of the crumble.

Place in the oven, preheated, at 180 degrees, for 25 minutes.

Then serve with cream....[I have no cream, damn!]....and enjoy!
