I dont have rolled oats so how would scrunched up weetbix go for the topping instead of.

blans, I have never used Weet-bix in a crumble topping but as an alternative you might like to try my elderly Mum's very popular topping for Apple Crumble - even the usually no-dessert members of the family line up for this one.

NANA’S CRUMBLE TOPPING
85g butter
55g sugar
vanilla essence
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking powder

Cream the butter and sugar, then beat in the vanilla essence. Add the flour and baking powder and mix to form a crumbly mixture.

The baking powder is added to simply lighten the mixture, not to make it cake-like or 'sure-to-rise'!

Hope that helps. :-))

[I will be using 6 or 8 apples, will this be enough or maybe double it.

blans, it really depends on the size of your dish, the depth of crumble topping you prefer and how many people you are serving. I would probably double the topping quantities and if you have any leftover, the uncooked crumble topping mixture could be frozen for next time. Hope you and yours enjoy it. :-))

Does anyone have a bulk crumble recipe? I used to have one years ago but seem to have lost it. It had rolled oats in it and you made quite a big quantity and put in a bag in the freezer. You then took out a cup at a time (to put over the fruit) when you wanted to make a crumble. I would love to make it again.

keeley4, I don't have a bulk recipe as such however I simply multiply the quantities in the following recipe by however many times I need to, to get the quantity I want to have on hand in the freezer.

½ cup each of plain flour and rolled oats
¼ cup sugar of choice - I prefer raw but brown or white are ok too
50g cold butter, cubed

I mix the above in the food processor, then store the bulk quantity in an icecream container in the freezer.

Hope that helps. :-))
