  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Apple filling: Cut the apples into cubes and mix with the brown sugar, flour and lemon juice in a bowl. Grease an ovenproof dish with some butter and add in the apple mix.
  3. Crumble: Mix the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cardamom (if using) and salt in a bowl. Add a few cubes of the plant-based butter at a time and rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumble on top of the apples in the dish.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the apple mix is bubbling up on the sides.
  5. Serving: Leave the crumble to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with plant-based custard and/or plant-based vanilla ice cream.
