Beaut Breakfasts - apple crumble

desert for breakfast...love that!

Breakfast at our house can sometimes be a bit of a hit and miss. Whilst Junior has happily grown to enjoy a variety of breakfast foods, Mini Hoges still struggles with the idea, claiming "I don't like that" to almost everything I make for him. And that includes those breakfast foods that he loved two days ago.

With a surplus of apples slowly softening in my fridge, I decided to turn them into a healthy breakfast apple crumble.

Breakfast Apple Crumble

12 Apples, peeled, cored and sliced into chunks
2 cinnamon sticks
1 large piece of orange rind
1 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
50 grams of butter

Stew apples with cinnamon and orange rind until they begin to soften. Place in a baking dish. 
In a bowl, rub together oats, flour sugar and butter so that the mixture resembles a crumbly texture.
Spread over the top of the apples and bake in a moderate oven for 20 minutes.
Serve the crumble warm or cold with a big dollop of natural vanilla yoghurt.

What different types of breakfasts have you served to fuel and nurture your family?

Happy Days

Yummo! I love apple crumble!

Mum used to let us have left over apple crumble out of the fridge for breakfast as kids.

A timely post Nic.

We were given a big bag of Granny Smith's on the weekend so when added to the two bags of juicy reds already in the crisper, we have 'pommes' coming out our bozoingers!

This looks like just the kind of dish that a couple of eager teenage chefs might enjoying baking on the weekend - thank you!
