My husband made this one night, when we had a whole heap of apples that needed to be used up. I was most impressed that he took it upon himself to do some baking, and Oh. Em. Geeeee!! I was amazed by the results. The crumble was crisp and crunchy, and the texture of the apple was spot on. It was awesome served with vanilla ice cream.

Of course, when we had guests over for dinner on a separate occasion, it was a no-brainer that this crumble had to be the last course in our feast.

The Perfect Apple Crumble

Serves: 8

  • 7 large green apples
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1tsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 2 tsp nutmeg (ground)
  • 2/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
Prep: 45 minutes | Cook: 45 minutes
Peel and core apples, then cut into rough 1-2cm cubes. Place apples in large saucepan and cover with water. Simmer (but don’t boil) covered with lid on med-high until apples are just tender but not too soft (usually 5mins once water is simmering). Drain apples well and place in large bowl
Combine caster sugar and cinnamon (ensures even spread), then toss through the apples. If you like the apples to be less sweet and more tart you can omit the sugar in this step, though there may be excess juice as a result.
Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until evenly mixed through.
Melt butter (do not burn or boil it) and add vanilla essence to butter, stir through.
Add butter mix to dry ingredients and mix well using a fork. Ensure all ingredients are moist and mixture has a crumbly texture.
Place apple mix evenly in medium casserole dish. Spread crumble mix over top of apple. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30-40minutes, or until crumble topping is slightly browned.
Serve with vanilla icecream, cream, or custard and ENJOY!

  1. That looks great. I’m so glad you used an oat topping – it is by far the best type.
