  • 1 large Bramley apple peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 350g frozen Essential Mixed Berries, defrosted
  • 1 orange (or large tangerine), scrubbed, zest and juice
  • 3 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 50g wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 50g roasted chopped hazelnuts
  • 50g mixed seeds
  • 50g jumbo porridge oats
  • 2 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • Strained Greek yogurt, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Arrange the apple and berries with any juices in a 1.5L, shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with the orange zest and juice and 1½ tbsp sugar.

  2. Put the flour and cinnamon into a mixing bowl, mix in the hazelnuts, seeds and oats, then stir in the remaining sugar. Sprinkle with the rapeseed oil and stir together with a knife blade until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Scatter it over the fruit to cover completely, then scatter over the almonds.

  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top is golden and the fruit tender, then serve with the yogurt.

Cook’s tip

This is a great recipe for using up leftover Christmas nuts and seeds nearing their best before date. Almonds, hazelnuts or a mix all work here. You can also substitute any fruit that needs using up such as pears, apples or plums for the Bramley apple and any of the excellent frozen fruit mixes. Increase the amount of sugar if the fruit is a little sourer, such as currants.
