Homemade apple crumble

Online shopping is so handy, especially since I’ve only just got back from a fortnight at home for Easter. But when my Asda shop arrived yesterday all my apples were either bruised or holey and there’s nothing worse than eating a bruised apple.  I didn’t want to waste them so I decided to make a crumble. It doesn’t take long to make and tastes great!

Preparation time: 10 minsIMG_3043

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Serves 4

Great when served with ice cream, single cream or custard.


For the filling

For the crumble

  • 175g plain flour, sieved
  • 100g soft butter, cut up into small pieces
  • 100g brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 190c (170c fan), Gas Mark 5, 375F
  2. Cut the apple into small cubes (about 1cm)
  3. Mix all the filling ingredients together in a medium sized (roughly 9in) pie dish.
  4. Rub the butter into the flour,  until there are no large pieces of butter and the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Mix in the sugar.
  6. Sprinkle ontop of the apple filling until all the apple pieces are covered.
  7. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until the crumble is golden brown and the filling is soft and bubbling.
  8. Enjoy!
