This ridiculously yummy Apple Crumble Recipe is the perfect winter dessert… AND, it’s quick to make!

We’re thinking that this Apple Crumble Recipe is not only a wonderfully warming Winter dessert … it’s pretty much perfect all year round. Serve it up cold in Summer with lashings of ice cream and lovely cold cream.  Dial up with warming deliciousness in Winter with hot custard or a warm sweet butterscotch or caramel sauce.

What apples are best for this Apple Crumble Recipe?

Traditionally Apple Crumble Recipes always called for Granny Smith Apples. They’re crisy, juicy but they are quite tart.  Usually the recipe would then call for sugar to be added to the apples when cooking. We always avoid added processed sugar wherever possible so love using red apples like Pink Lady Apples in our Apple Crumble Recipes.

Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 1 Medium Apple Crumble)

  • 6 large Red apples ( green apples can be used , just add a little extra sugar if desired)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1 1/4 cups Plain flour
  • 1/2 cup Caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Peel and core apples. Cut into wedges and place in saucepan. Add water to just under top layer of apples. Sprinkle with the sugar (optional), cover and stew over medium heat.
  2. To make crumble topping, place all ingredients in a bowl and rub together with clean hands until mixed well. You can leave the mixture a little 'lumpy' as this will add texture to the crumble topping.
  3. Once the apples are soft, strain to remove most of the water and spoon into a greased oven dish.
  4. Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the top of the apples. Remember to leave lumps and bumps as these will toast and crisp up nicely when baked.
  5. Bake in a 180 deg. Oven 30-40 mins or until golden.
  6. Serve warm with cream, ice cream or custard (or even a caramel or butterscotch sauce)!


The amount of sugar added to the apples is really personal taste (and usually unnecessary). If you are using sweet apples (red apples) you can cut back on the sugar a bit. This is also yummy cold the next day if you have leftovers!

  • Wow I didn’t realise it was so easy to make, can’t wait to give it a try!


  • Summer, winter or any other season I don’t care – apple crumble if perfect at any time. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or hot custard you just can’t so wrong. A super easy recipe.


  • We love apple crumble. I never follow a recipe when I make it.


  • This is also nice as a cold dessert in hot weather. However the crumble does tend to come apart a bit when cold.
