Autumn Apple Crumble Recipe

One of my favourite desserts to have during the autumn and winter months has to be Apple Crumble! There's something about them, the cinnamon taste and the warmth that are just perfect at this time of year. I decided to use my usual crumble recipe to make this which actually includes a crumble base which I prefer, the more crumble the better right? And I just swapped the fruit I'd used before in the recipe for apples and extra cinnamon instead.


3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup cold unsalted butter
1 large egg
About 4 medium apples

  • Pre-heat the oven to around gas mark 6 and cover a tray in either foil or baking paper.
  • Peel and chop the apples and set aside.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, except for the apples and egg.
  • Mix these together with your fingers (or whatever you prefer) this will be used as both the crumble base and topping.
  • After these look to be mixed together enough, add the egg and mix together in the same way again until you get a much more crumble-looking mixture.
  • Then you can use about three-quarters of the crumble mixture for the bottom of the crumble and press down so it sticks together.
  • Put the apples in a pan with a little water and heat until softened, I also added some cinnamon too.
  • Now you can add your apples as the next layer of the crumble
  • And finally add the rest of the crumble mixture on top of the apples, BUT don't press down on it this time, leave it scattered but covered as much as you like for a nice crumble topping.
  • And then place in the oven for around 20-25 minutes or until the crumble top is looking golden.

And there you have a lovely warm apple crumble to keep you warm and feeling Christmassy through Autumn and Winter!
