Ingredients
  • 335g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 150g dairy-free spread, frozen
  • Zest 1 orange
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled, cored and chopped, peel reserved
  • Juice ½ orange
  • 1½tsp cinnamon
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 1tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 12 blueberries
  • 12 raisins
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

  • Put 300g of the flour in a mixing bowl. Grate in the frozen spread, add the zest and stir with a blunt-bladed knife. Mix in 2tbsp water. Use your hands to bring the mixture together into a ball. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 20 mins.

  • Put the apples in a bowl. Squeeze over the orange juice. Sprinkle over 1tbsp of the remaining flour and 1tsp of the cinnamon. Mix to coat the apples. Set aside.

  • Put the pastry on a floured surface. Roll out to the thickness of a £1 coin. Cut out 6 x 10cm circles and put them in 6 muffin tray holes, pressing in with your fingers. Trim off the excess but leave ½cm overlapping the edge of each hole. Chill for 5 mins. Use the leftover pastry to make 12 x 2cm bunny ears.

  • Mix together the oats, the remaining flour, the maple syrup, the remaining cinnamon and the nutmeg.

  • Divide the apples between the cases, top with the crumble and add the ears.

  • Bake for 15-20 mins until the pastry is browned and the crumble is set and crispy. Press 2 blueberries and 2 raisins onto each to make a bunny face. Add apple-peel ‘whiskers’ and enjoy warm.
