Mum's Apple Crumble Recipe

Apple Crumble was one of the first deserts my mum ever taught me to make and I have very fond memories stood on a stool in the kitchen making it together on chilly Autumn/Winter nights. It’s a pudding that’s oh so satisfying and yet incredibly easy to make with warm tart apples and sweet and spicy sugary crumble. I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you for a while, so if you’re looking for comfort food you’ve come to the right place!

Mum's Apple Crumble Recipe


400g Plain Flour

200g Caster Sugar

4tbsp Brown Sugar

200g Cold Butter

3-4 Cooking Apples

1 tsp Cinammon


With crumble, all you have to remember is it’s half sugar and butter to flour so you can simply adjust these measurements to fit your dish – I like to half it and make mini crumbles as the perfect little naughty but nice dessert!

How To

  1. Peel, core and slice your apples and lay them into the bottom of your dish.
  2. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and rub them into the apple until coated
  3. For the crumble, mix together your flour and caster sugar and then rub in the butter with your hands until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. Cover the apples with your crumble mixture and bake at 190C for 40-45minutes until the top is golden brown!
