Apples, sultanas & raisins.

My recipe for one of my favourite desserts. Apple crumble.

Apple Crumble.


For the Crumble.

  • 300 grams of sieved plain flour.
  • Pinch of salt.
  • 175 grams of brown sugar.
  • 200 grams of butter at room temperature.
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

For the Filling.

  • 8 apples, peeled, cored & cut into slices.
  • 50 grams of brown sugar.
  • 1 tablespoon of plain flour.
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Place the flour, salt & sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Take a few cubes of butter at a time rub them into the flour mixture. Keep rubbing
    until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the sugar, flour & cinnamon. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit.
  4. Butter an ovenproof dish/dishes (depending on if you make 1 large or 4 smaller crumbles). Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
  5. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes until the crumble is browned & the fruit mixture bubbling.
  6. Serve with custard, ice cream or just milk.

This was beautiful & I am glad I made smaller two-portion crumbles or I would have eaten them all in one go.
