Apple Crumble

I was having sore throat and cold and yearning for a good dessert..  The taste of caramalised apples with cinnamon was flashing in my mind.. As i didn’t have the patience to make an apple pie, I settled on the easier version – Apple Crumble.   Delicious and can be prepared in a jiffy.. I got the recipe from here, modified it to cut down the butter and sugar.

For the crumble
  • 250g plain flour, sieved pinch of salt
  • 50g unrefined brown sugar
  • 50g  unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature
  • Knob of butter for greasing

For the filling
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1cm pieces
  • 50g unrefined brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Place the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.
  4. Butter a 24cm/9in ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
  5. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.
