This week (5th-12th February) is Bramley Apple week and what better excuse to make a fruit and oat betty and celebrate an obscure food festival?

Apple and Blackberry Betty
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and pick out some lovely large Bramley apples:
Peel, core and slice the apples and place them in a saucepan, (I added some defrosted blackberries that I’ve been saving in the freezer for a rainy day at this point). Sprinkle the fruit with sugar and a couple of tablespoons of water and cook on a low heat for 7 or 8 minutes:
Meanwhile, rub together some cold butter from the fridge (approx 75g), plain flour, porridge oats and demerara sugar to make the topping:
Transfer the fruit in the bottom of the bowl, sprinkle the oaty goodness over the top and press down:
Then cook in the oven for approximately 30 minutes, until you have a delicious fruity, oaty mess:
