I used this recipe for our Thanksgiving dessert yesterday (Canadian Thanksgiving) and 3 of us wiped it out before bedtime. In order to lower added sugar as much as possible it used 1/3 cup of Splenda Brown in the fruit and Splenda granular in the topping. Used gorgeous crisp and perfect Gala apples and added 1 rounded tsp of cinnamon, 3/4 tsp of ginger paste to the fruit. The liquid was 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup of lemon juice. It earned top marks all around. I might add that for myself I would use half the amount of raisins next time only because they are such concentrated little bundles of sugar. Believe me there were no complaints at all with the full amount, lol. The recipe works beautifully. :D
- 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, I use soft dark
- 1 cup plain flour
- 1⁄2 cup caster sugar
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
- 75 g unsalted butter, softened
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Put apples, raisins, juice and brown sugar in a medium sized saucepan, and cook over a medium heat for about 15 mins or until the apples are soft.
- Transfer to 6 3/4 cup ramekins or a 1.5L capacity dish.
- Put flour, caster sugar and oats into a large bowl and stir well.
- Add the butter and rub lightly until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Scatter over apple mixture.
