Apple crumble is hands down my favorite Fall dessert. Its warm and sweet, and perfect for cozy nights in. My other favorite thing about this delicious dessert, is the fact that it is ridiculously easy to make. It only requires 5 ingredients and takes no time at all to whip together. You can wow you guests with a yummy homemade dessert or simply throw it together for yourself to indulge in. I mostly do the latter, and it’s basically become a staple in our home every week during Fall.

Unfortunately, as this is a UK recipe the dry goods need to be measured out using a measuring scale, but you can pick one up relatively inexpensively here. Trust me, it’s well worth getting one. It comes in handy all the time, and I love not being limited to US recipes only.

300g/10½oz all purpose flour, pinch of salt

175g/6oz soft brown sugar

200g/7oz unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature

Knob of butter for greasing



5-6 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch pieces

50g/2oz soft brown sugar

1 tbsp all purpose flour

1 pinch of ground cinnamon



Preheat oven to 350F.

Peel apples.

Chop apples into about 1 inch bite sized pieces and place in bowl.

Measure out flour, sugar and butter using scale.

Cut butter into cubes and mix into flour and sugar. Keeping combining until mixture turns into the consistency  of breadcrumbs.

Measure out sugar for filling. Then add flour and cinnamon and sprinkle over chopped apples, making sure they are well coated.

Grease pan with butter and toss in apples. My personal favorite is this pyrex dish.

Cover fruit with topping mixture.

Bake for 40-45 minutes until fruit mixture is bubbling and the crumble has browned.

Aaaaaand that’s it! Serve with fresh cream or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, and enjoy!
