Apple Brown Betty Pie

This one's from my mother-in-law in the States and is a slightly upmarket apple crumble that in our house disappears faster than a Lib Dem coalition leader's credibility. Oops. Politics creeping into a food blog. Not good. Anyway make this and you'll feel happy.


4 cups or more sliced, peeled apples
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup vegan margarine


Pre heat the oven to 190 degrees C. Take a medium-sized pie dish and give it a rub with some margarine, and then pile in the apples to make a good mound - use more if the dish looks a little empty. Next, sprinkle over the orange juice. In a separate bowl combine the sugar, flour, spices and a dash of salt. Cut in the margarine and mix until you've got a nice crumbly mixture, then sprinkle over the apples. Bake in the pre-heated over for around 45 minutes or until the pie looks golden and crisp. Serve up straight away, preferably with some vegan ice cream like to eternally delightful Swedish Glace.
