Apple Crumble

Simple, tasty and easy to make. One of my favourite desserts.


For the filling

  • 3 or 4 medium sized apples, peeled, cored and cubed
  • 1 tbsp clear liquid (water, booze, rose water)
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon or cardamom

For the crumble

  • 200 g (7 ounce) gluten free flour mix
  • 100 g (3 ounce) gluten free oats
  • 150 (5 ounce) butter or vegan margarine
  • 75 g (2.5 ounce) sugar

Ounces are approximations. The rule of thumb is: Use twice as much butter as you have sugar, and twice as much flour/oat mixture as you have butter.


Preheat oven to 180C/350F

Toss apples with sugar, spices and liquid in a baking dish.

Put flour, oats and sugar in a bowl. Slice in butter and rub it with your fingertips into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add more butter if needed.

Cover apple filling with the dough and place in oven for 25-30 minutes, until golden on top.

Serve warm with (vegan) cream or custard.

Recipe Tips

  1. To save time and effort, leave the skins on the apples.
  2. Use rhubarb instead of apples, or any other fruit you like.
  3. Spoon a handful of chocolate chips or chopped nuts into the crumble mixture.
