  • 11/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp plain flour additional for apples
  • 1/2 cup whole rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter cubed and chilled
  • 5 large royal gala apples peeled, cored and cut into sixths
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  1. Preheat grill to medium heat with the lid on, or if using an oven, preheat at 190°C/375°F.

  2. Take 1 or 2 cubes of chilled butter and grease the bottom of a cast iron pan, or ovenproof dish. Set aside for later.

  3. Toss apples in lemon juice, cinnamon powder and 1 tbsp of plain flour. Some sugar may be added as desired if apples are not sweet enough. Line bottom of pan evenly with apples. 

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, both sugars and salt. Stir until well combined. Add in cubes of chilled butter, using hands to rub the flour mixture against the butter cubes. Continue mixing until the texture resembles wet sand. Clumps are desirable. Spread crumble topping evenly over apples in pan.

  5. Place pan onto grill, and cook with lid on, until apples have softened and top is brown. Approximately 20-30 minutes.

  6. Remove to cool, and portion out as desired for maximum eating pleasure!
