  • 4 cups loquats deseeded and quartered
  • 4 apples peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F.
  2. Butter a 9 inch baking pan.
  3. In a bowl, toss together the sliced apples, loquats and mix the vanilla and lemon juice until coated. Spread evenly across the greased baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together then cut in the butter using a fork or a pastry cutter until it forms a crumbly mixture. I find it’s easier to mix by hand, rubbing the ingredients with my fingers until it forms soft crumbs.
  5. Sprinkle overtop the apple loquat mixture in the dish. Bake for about 35 minutes or until the fruit is bubbly and the topping is lightly browned. Let cool slightly before serving with vanilla ice-cream or creme fraiche.
