Apple crumble recipe

Apple crumble is so easy to make, it can hardly be called cooking. This apple crumble recipe makes a great winter dessert, served with ice cream or cream, and contains cloves, allspice and brown sugar. The crumble forms when baked in a hot oven.



  • 6-8 large cooking apples (or 2 cups poached or pureed fruit)
  • 1 tblsp water
  • 3 cloves or 1 tsp all spice


  • 150g plain flour
  • 60g unsalted softened butter
  • 100g brown sugar


Preheat oven to 200C

Peel, core and cut apples into smallish pieces.

Place cut apple, cloves and water into a small casserole dish.

Cover and place in microwave on high for about 5 minutes.
In a small bowl rub the butter and flour together to form pea size pieces.

Then mix in sugar.

Put the crumble mixture on top of the apple and put into oven for around 15 - 20 minutes or until crispy and brown on top. Serve with icecream.
