Stewing apples is simple, easy on the pocket and you can use it for so many things.

If I’m not spooning this over my cereal or filling a tart, then I like to make an impromptu dessert for the kids.

Serves 5

500g cooking apples, peeled, cored and roughly diced

50g sugar

300g greek yoghurt

150 ml cream , lightly whipped.

1-2 Tbsp icing sugar


100g rolled oats

2 Tbsp brown sugar

Pinch cinnamon


Begin by stewing the apples: add the apples, sugar and 1 Tbsp water to a suitable sized pot. Cook over a gentle heat until the apples soften and pulpy (10-15 minutes). Cool until required.

To make the topping: place a sheet of baking paper over a baking tray. Mix the rolled oats with the sugar and cinnamon and spread evenly over the paper. Place in oven and bake until the oats go golden and the sugar caramelises (3-5 minutes). Cool completely.

To assemble: Gently fold together the yoghurt, icing sugar and cream.

Place the apple in the bottom of the glass or serving dish, add a generous spoonful of cream mixture, repeat with apple and cream and finish with the crunchy toasted oats.

Chill until required. This simple dessert can be made with any type of fruit all year round.
