Visually this cake is a real crowd pleaser; with golden apricots and sweet apple slices, just wait till you taste it. The crunchiness of Jordans oat granola combined with autumnal mixed spices makes it a cake you’d want to tuck into again and again.

Serve warm with a generous dollop of crème fraiche for extra Mmmmm factor.

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 20cm (8 inch) loose-based cake tin

2 Mix together the Jordans Crunchy Oat Granola, sugar (keeping back 1 tablespoon), flour, spice and salt. Melt the butter over a low heat and stir into the dry ingredients. Tip half the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Press down lightly

3 Mix the apricots, apples and lemon juice together and arrange about two-thirds in the cake tin. Sprinkle the remaining cake mixture on top and press down lightly. Scatter the rest of the fruit mixture on top, and sprinkle with leftover sugar 

4 Bake for 35-40 minutes until firm and deliciously golden brown. Cool for about 20-30 minutes, (if you can wait that long!) then remove from the tin. Carefully remove the lining paper. Serve warm or cold with crème fraiche, ice cream or natural yogurt

Cook’s tips:

  • Try using the Fruit and Nut variety of Jordans Crunchy Oat Granola next time.
  • In August & September, try using blackberries instead of apricots for a seasonal treat - they always taste good mixed with apples.
  • A perfect pud to please the crowds after a Sunday roast, or cold with a nice cup of tea.
