Irish Breakfast Fruit Crisp





2 apples, peeled and sliced
2 pears, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup pitted prunes
1/2 cup dried apricots, cut in half
1/2 cup dried cherries or
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 cup apple juice or
orange juice


1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup soft margarine or
unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup apple juice or
orange juice


Combine apples, pears, prunes, apricots, cherries, maple syrup and 1/4 cup apple juice. Place in 8-cup baking dish.

For topping, combine rolled oats, flour, bran, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir in melted margarine or butter and 1/3 cup juice. Spoon over fruit.

Bake in preheated 350 oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until fruit is very tender and topping is crisp.

In Ireland this breakfast fruit crisp is served with clotted cream. I serve it with maple syrup or soft yogurt cheese or regular yogurt.

You may simplify this recipe by using four apples and 1 cup dried apricots.

I used dried cherries, Turkish apricots and raisins as the dried fruit in this recipe.

The crisp tastes great with yogurt for breakfast/brunch or with ice cream for dessert.
