PREP: 30 minutes COOK TIME: 40 minutes
140 g rolled oats
125 g brown sugar
125 g wholemeal self-raising flour
185 g butter, melted
2 tsp grated lemon rind
155 g dried apricots, chopped
125 ml (4 fl oz) water
60 ml (2 fl oz) passion fruit pulp
2 tbsp sugar
Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Grease a shallow 7X11 inches cake tin.
Place the oats, sugar and flour in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Stir in the butter and lemon rind and mix together. Press half the mixture on the base of the tin.
To make the filling, combine all the ingredients in a small pan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the apricots are soft and all the liquid is absorbed. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Spread evenly over the oat mixture.
Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture over the filling and bake for 40 minutes or until browned and crisp. Cut into slices and serve warm with a dollop of cream or yogurt.
