Mostly crumble apple crumble 

It was my aunt that made crumble in our house and as there was so many of us, she would make 2-3 dishes of it to see us through. Twenty something years on, I can confess that it was me who used to sneak down at night and eat the crumble topping leaving just the fruit behind, sorry!

Let’s be honest the topping is the best bit – so this is my ‘mostly crumble apple crumble’; speaks for itself I think, enjoy 😉

3 Granny Smith apples 

120g plain flour 

60g butter (cold)

60g golden caster sugar 

Optional – 1 tsp ground ginger, 1tsp cinnamon 


Preheat oven to 180C 

1. Peel and dice the apples into small chunks and place in a small oven proof dish 

2. Rub the butter into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs then stir in the sugar 


Blitz the flour, sugar and butter in a food processor for a few minutes. 

3. Optional – stir through the ground ginger and cinnamon 

4. Cover the apples with the crumble topping and cook for around 45 -50 minutes until the top is golden and apples are cooked. 

5. Serve with cream – we  love Isigny Ste Mère Creme a la Vanille de Madagascar in my house and have it with everything!
