Apple Crumble

I have wanted to make an Apple Crumble for months now, but it just did not seem to fit in with the hot and humid summer months here in Berlin. So for me as soon as the weather turned cold it could mean only one thing! Here is how I made it;


  • 100g of Rolled Oats
  • 100g of Wholemeal Flour
  • 60g of Brown Sugar
  • 80g of Butter
  • 600g of Apples once Peeled and Chopped
  • 75g of Caster Sugar
  • 2tbsp of Water
  • 2tbsp of Cinnamon
  • 2tbsp of Lemon Juice
Apples Ready for the Crumble


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C
  2. Peel, core and chop up the apples into small chunks
  3. Then put the apples, sugar, water, cinnamon and lemon juice into a pan
  4. Cook on a low heat for 5 minutes until the apples are coated and sticky
  5. The place in an even layer in your oven dish
  6. Set aside and in another bowl place the flour, oats and brown sugar into a bowl and mix well
  7. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to the mixture
  8. Mix with your finger tips until it resembles and even crumb texture
  9. Cover the filling with an even layer of the the crumble mixture
  10. Put into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is golden and the apple hot

Serving Suggestions

Pouring Cream, Ice Cream or Custard all make great accompaniments

If this Apple Crumble does not have you salivating over your keyboard then quite frankly there is something wrong with you and you must make it right away and then eat it and then come back and tell me it is not truly delicious! Since making this for dinner at friends 3 weeks ago I have made 2 mini ones for us at home just by cutting the ingredients all by half and using a smaller dish as it is actually really quick and simple to make. I would love to hear from you if you make it for yourself or if you have any other crumbles that I should try.
