Ingredients:
100g/4oz
1 tsp
75g/3oz
500g carton
284ml carton
Method: 

NOTE: Russet apples work just as well as Cox's. Blackcurrent coulis is available in cartons.

1 Mix the oats, spice and sugar Melt 50g
butter in a frying pan, add the oats and fry
for about 5 minutes, stirring all the time,
until they are lightly toasted and crisp
(they become crispier still on cooling).
Tip into a bowl and leave to cool.

2 Peel, core and thickly slice the apples.
Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan until it is foaming, add the apples and fry quickly over a fairly high heat, flipping them over when they start to colour. Sprinkle over the sugar and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, until the apples are slightly softened. Leave to cool.

3 Layer half the apples and almost half the oats in a glass serving dish, repeat, setting aside a few oats. Drizzle over the coulis, then spoon over the custard. Whip the cream until stiff, then spoon over the custard. Scatter over the remaining oats. Serve straight away or chill for up to 6 hours.
