Apple Crumble Recipe

There’s little better than a bowl of comforting, sweet, warm apple crumble smothered with custard and a dollop of ice-cream. Heaven in a bowl on a cold winter’s night. This scrumptious but basic recipe is perfectly satisfying as-is but it can easily be customised to ones desires by substituting half of the flour with an equal weight of rolled oats, nuts or seeds for a crunchier crumble. You can also substitute a portion of the apples for equal weights of stewed rhubarb, raspberries or blueberries. The options are limitless!


4 large cooking apples
300g plain flour
150g butter
150g demerara sugar (or brown sugar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Grease the ovenproof dish
  3. Rub the flour and butter together to form a crumb-like consistency
  4. Mix through half of the sugar and leave aside to prepare the apples
  5. Peel and core the cooking apples. Cut the apple into thin slices and place in the prepared dish
  6. Mix the remaining sugar through the apple slices
  7. Spread the crumble over the apples and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes
  8. Enjoy with warm custard and ice-cream
