Blackberry & Apple Oat Bake

We did a crumble recipe last week, and I’m sure you all loved it! This week, we’re doing something a bit different, a Blackberry & apple oat bake! 


  • 500ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cardamom pods , bashed
  • 2 Gala apples , peeled, cored and cut into 1cm cubes
  • 200g jumbo porridge oats
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g pecans , roughly chopped
  • 320g blackberries
  • milk or fat-free yogurt and maple syrup, to serve



  • Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the milk, spices and apple in a small saucepan. Cover and then gently bring to the boil and simmer for 10-12 mins. Set aside to infuse for at least 15 mins.
  • Remove and discard the spices, then pour the apples and milk into a large bowl and roughly crush the apples with the back of a fork. Mix in the oats, egg, vanilla, baking powder, pecans and blackberries.
  • Tip into a 2-litre ovenproof dish and bake for about 30-35 mins until piping hot in the middle. Serve with milk or yogurt and maple syrup, if you like.
