Your Go-To Dessert // Apple Crumble Recipe |

I’m convinced that to be the worlds best host/party guest, you only really need one dependable signature dish. One that’s so simple, you know it by heart and can whip it up with complete ease. Everyone thinks you’re a kitchen genius (which you are!) and it’s all because one day you read a blog where you discovered this Apple Crumble recipe!

That’s exactly what’s happened to me. I’m still basking in the greatness of this recipe – and I want to share the spotlight with you! I mean, even if one day we end up at the same party, bringing the same dish – it will only mean that there’s more to go around!

To make the crumble topping, I stuck to the recipe – using butter, white flour and sugar. But I’ll start playing with it – perhaps trying whole wheat flour, or another whole grain flour.  I’ll play with the sugar too – I may try using coconut sugar or even maple syrup. Perhaps substituting coconut oil for the butter…

Really, any excuse to make this dessert into a perfectly acceptable breakfast option too! If you come up with a healthier version – please share it with us!

I highly recommend you pair your apple crumble with natural greek yogurt! I’m no chef, but I dare say it helps to balance out the flavours.

Here’s the best part about this dish – I’ve eaten it hot out of the oven and cold out of the fridge  – and it’s beautiful both ways!

Apple Crumble Recipe

adapted from Smitten Kitchen

  • 6 apples, cored and sliced ((mix of red and green for sweet and tart))
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar

for the crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp sliced almonds ((or any nut you like))
  • 5 tbsp of softened butter
  • pinch of salt
  1. Set your oven to 400f/200c
  2. peel, core and slice your apples
  3. in a baking dish, add the base layer of apples with flour and sugar. Mix with your hands to combine. My apples browned a bit, but it didn’t affect the outcome.
  4. In a bowl, mix the oats, flour, sugar, nuts, butter and salt. Work with your hands to form dry clumps. This will be your crumble.
  5. Add the crumble topping to evenly cover the apples
  6. Knock the whole thing into the oven and bake for about 40 minutes until the top is browned and the apples have baked soft.
  7. Serve with natural yogurt

    • Hi Megan! It is – I’ve been eating it for breakfast, and I don’t feel bad about it! 🙂 If you try is let us know how you get on!

  1. I was just thinking about making it! I used to just make the apple dessert without the crumble for a quick fix. Noticed that this recipe does not include cinnamon. I shall try this out without it. Thanks!

    • Hi Kin – my hubby’s not a huge fan of cinnamon in his apple desserts – so I got used to leaving it out – but whatever works best for you is definitely the way to go! 🙂 I hope you enjoy the recipe!!
