This is one of those things that needs to be eaten to be believed. You may be skeptical at first, but focaccia isn't all that different from cake, is it? This recipe combines a delicious apple crumble topping with the bounciest, slightly sweet focaccia and tart apples.


Add the flour, yeast, salt, sugar and warm water to a bowl. Mix until there are no pockets of dry flour, then set aside somewhere warm to prove for around 4 hours - longer if you have the time!

Add the butter, oats, flour and sugar to a food processor and pulse until you have a cohesive mixture around the size of pea crumbs.

Core the apple and cut into 8 slices. Toss with caster sugar and lemon juice.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Pour the dough into a greased, lined baking tray and allow to rise for a further hour. Top with apples and the crumble topping and bake for around 45 minutes or until risen, golden and crumbly.

Serve with caramel.
