5 cups peeled and very thinly sliced green apples (for variation, cut down apples to 3 cups and add 2 cups of peeled and thinly sliced ripe plums or peaches, or sliced strawberries. For strawberries, slice ahead of time and let them sit in a strainer for about an hour to get rid of excess liquid)
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups packed brown sugar
1½ cups flour
1½ cups quick cooking oatmeal
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
How to do it
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180°C (350°F)
2. In a medium-sized pot, melt the butter/margarine.
3. Add the sugar, flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix together well.
4. Spread half of the crumble mixture on the bottom of a medium-sized ungreased oven-proof dish, and pat down so the bottom of the dish is fully covered. Then spread the fruit over the crumble. Top with the rest of the crumble mixture, spreading it evenly over the fruit.
5. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Serve warm. Serves about 8.
