Recipe: Apple and Spice Autumnal Crumble

Autumn is officially upon us, and if there is something that says autumn even more than dark nights, fireworks and wool coats, then it has to be crumble. Apple crumble is a firm family favourite, and this recipe is a tasty twist on this comforting classic (I really am pulling out all the alliterative stops for you guys). So if you fancy knocking up a super easy pud that tastes as if it took so much more effort – read on!



Ingredients (Serves 4):

For the filling:

500g Bramley Apples

40g Sultanas

1tsp Ground Cinnamon

1tsp Ground Nutmeg

1tsp Mixed Spice

25g Dark Soft Sugar

25g Caster Sugar

For the topping:

100g Self-Raising flour

40g Caster Sugar

40g Dark Soft Sugar

1tsp Ground Cinnamon

75g Butter


1. Preheat the oven at 180°C. Peel, core and slice the apples and add with all of the filling ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Spoon into a medium sized oven proof dish.


2. Make the topping in a separate bowl. Combine the flour, sugars and cinnamon. Then add the butter in small chunks. Rub between your fingertips until the dry ingredients has combined with the butter to make crumbs.


3. Cover the filling with the crumb topping. Bake for around 30 minutes, keeping an eye that the crumble doesn’t catch. Take out once baked and leave to cool. Enjoy warm with custard!

    This post was JUST what I needed today! I have a ton of apples from a neighbours apple tree (they gave them to me, I didn’t steal them haha) and I’ve been wondering what to do with them. Thank you!
