Cooking the apples
Cooking the apples | Source


  • 3 cooking or dessert apples
  • 8 oz butter
  • 5 oz soft brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons treacle
  • 12 oz porridge oats


  1. Put the butter, brown sugar and treacle into a large non-stick pan and heat gently, stirring until all the butter has melted and the sugar dissolved.
  2. Peel, core and chop the apples into small pieces, then add to the melted butter and sugar, stir in so that all the pieces of apple are completely coated, and then cook over a low heat until slightly softened. This should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and pour in the porridge oats. Mix quickly and well until everything is evenly mixed and all the oats are coated.
  4. Put the mixture into a greased square-sided ovenproof dish or tin, pat down firmly and smooth into the corners with the back of a wooden spoon.
  5. Cook in a preheated oven for 25 minutes at 190 deg. C, or gas mark 5. Mark into portions and loosen the edges with a sharp knife while still warm, but leave to cool for about 15 minutes before attempting to remove from the tin. Finish cooling on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container.

      Hi Rosa - thanks for pointing that out. I will add it to the instructions. Treacle is a sugar syrup made from molasses, and is a lovely dark sticky sweet syrup. Golden syrup or honey can be substituted, or even just a bit of extra brown sugar.

      Interesting recipe. Looks yummy .... Just wondering, though: The ingredients call for 2 TBSP of treacle. What is treacle and where is it used in the recipe?
