Apple and apricot crunch

Stewed apples with apricots and an almond crumble topping suitable from 10 months

  • 3 large cooking apple
  • 6 whole fresh apricot, (or half a can)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp ground almond
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 50g butter
  • 150g flour


  • Step 1

    Pre-heat the oven to 220C.

  • Step 2

    Chop cooking apples (1-3 depending on the size of your dish) into small chunks.

  • Step 3

    Put apple chunks into a saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil.

  • Step 4

    Add cinnamon and reduce the heat to simmer.

  • Step 5

    Stir for 5-7 minutes until apples soften.

  • Step 6

    While your apples are softening, place butter and flour into a separate bowl and rub together with your hands until they become breadcrumb-like, then stir in the sugar.

  • Step 7

    Chop (4-6) apricots into pieces, removing the stones if using fresh fruit.

  • Step 8

    Take the apples off the heat and mix in the apricot pieces.

  • Step 9

    Put the mixture into your baking dish.

  • Step 10

    Spoon your crumb mix evenly onto the apples and apricots.

  • Step 11

    Sprinkle ground almonds on the very top.

  • Step 12

    Place in the oven for around 30 minutes or until the topping turns a golden brown.

  • Step 13

    It’ll be piping hot so wait for it to cool down before serving!

Make this extra crunchy by sprinkling flaked rather than ground almonds on the top.
