The Best Apple Crumble

by helbel

    The best apple crumble, this is really easy and always goes down well with everybody, especially when its cold. Great comfort food!


    1. Firstly put on the oven at 200 degrees c/ gas 6.

    2. Put the apples into a saucepan with the 2ozs of the sugar and cook over a gentle heat for 5-6 mins or until just beginning to soften.

    3. To make the crumble topping:
    4. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs.

    5. Stir in the oats and remaining sugar.

    6. Spoon fruit into a fairly deep dish and cover with crumble mixture.

    7. Bake for 30 mins until the top has nicely browned.

    8. Serve with a nice fat portion of thick cream or custard, yum!


    To make this dessert a little more special you can bake them in individual ramekin dishes and then serve on a large plate with a dollop of whipped double cream or vanilla ice cream

      Just downloaded the PDF of this Apple Clumble recipe - what a great idea to add this functionality to the recipes. I am paranoid about having my laptop in the kitchen while I cook in case I spill something on it. This litle stroke of genious means I now dont have to worry about that. Just download the PDF and print......THANKS!

      It's in OUNCES! Brilliant! I have yet to decimalise - if imperial measures are ok for the US of A, it's alright for me after a thousand years of British Use!Making this for Hubby this evening, now we've got some ripe apples

      the crumble is so much tastier made with brown sugar as opposed to natural white.I also like adding corn flakesto give a more crunchy texture.if you all like crumbles or apple pies then try the Dorset Apple Cake.Its simply divine.

      i always make my apple crumble with red eating apples as i find the cooking apples too tart. if you do that you dont need to add sugar to the apples.

      Apologies if someone has already replied to you MMerci. Cooking apples are quite tart and on the large side. You wouldn't want to eat them without cooking first as you'd probably end up with stomach ache. If you can't find them in Florida, try substituting 5 med Granny Smith. I haven't made this recipe but I assume the tartness of the apples will balance out the sweetness of the crumble. I make a granny smith apple pie and I love the contrast of tastes. I think Bramleys would be too sweet but I know that they are a trad'l English pie filling. Hope this helped.

      Very VERY scrummy recipe, which resulted in a big thumbs-up from my Apple Crumble loving hubby! He especially liked the addition of the Oats. I suspect I shall be making this again and again. Thank you for posting!

      Please tell me what you mean by cooking apples, I am in Florida and have never seen any. I am from England and used to using Bramley apples for desserts.
      Eating apples do not work as well.

      If you've got an aga its even easier to cook the apples - just put them into and oven proof dish with a little water and sugar and place them in the baking oven for a minimum of 4hrs - they come out absolutely perfect and do not need to be watched while they cook so you can get on with your other preparations

        Classic apple crumble - so easy and versatile the whole family will love this one


        1. 1. Equipment one large bowl, one round 18 cm baking tin.

        2. 2. Heat the oven to 190 c or 375 f or gas mark 5.

        3. 3. Peel, decore and cut the apples into chunks.

        4. 4. Rub the butter in flour until it looks like bread crumbs.

        5. 5. Now add the caster sugar and mix it with your hand.

        6. 6. Then add a teaspoon of cinnamon then mix that with your hand.

        7. 7. Put the apples into the tin and then put the crumble mixture on top of the apples.

        8. 8. Put thew tin containing the apple crumble in the oven and cook for 30 minutes.

        9. 9. Serve this with custard and it is equally delicious hot or cold
        10. serve with custard


        Add a few flaked almonds to the crumble mixture of an extra special nutty flavour. Depending on the apples, you may need to add a teaspoon or two of sugar to the apples when you put them in the tin as cooking apples can be very sour. Remember the bigger the chunks of appel the longer they will take to cook through and go soft so try to cut them quite small (say the size of a 50 pence piece)

        Apple Crumble

        by d_vandrewala

          1. Peel and core all of the apples. Then chop each apple in half and then add to boiling water in a pan for 30 minutes. The amount of water should just cover the apples in the pan. After 15 minutes as the apples start to soften, add the cinnamon to the water and apples.

          2. Whilst that is boiling make the crumble base. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and the sugar and mix together thoroughly. Then add half of the butter to the mixture and rub in the butter to the mixture. Once this is done, repeat with the remaining butter until there is a consistency like breadcrumbs. (if this is not achieved, add a bit of water to the mixture)

          3. Drain the apple mixture and add to the bottom of an oven proof dish and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Then add the crumble mixture on top and bake in the oven on a low heat (140 degrees) for 1 hour. After an hour turn the heat upto 200 degrees for a further 30 minutes to crisp the crumble.

          4. Serve with ice cream or custard.
