Foodie Friday: Fall Apple Crumble!

I was so excited to get baking this week, after picking up some fresh apples last weekend in Virginia. It was a lot of fun being in the kitchen with my mother in law and Meme, as we filled the lodge with the sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar, after an afternoon of apple picking, that I couldn't wait to get back to Kentucky with my own apples and a recipe in mind to share with you. It's simple but so delicious and I absolutely love the smell that fills the apartment through making it! :)

So without further ado, here is a simple and easy recipe for a scrumptious, very seasonal, fall Apple Crumble! ooh I will mention that this recipe makes a lot of crumble, quite simply because we think that's the best bit. If you only prefer a little bit of crumble, you can half the recipe! :)


For the Crumble:
2 cups Flour
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of caster sugar
2 sticks of butter
As much cinnamon as your heart desires.

For the apple base:

I had a variety of apples all shapes and sizes but if you are doing the 2 cup crumble I would say use about 5-6 big apples. For the 1 cup recipe, use about 3-4 big apples. If this is too many and  you have any left over, have a little snack!
1 tbsp of Butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar (or caster sugar is fine)
Cinnamon to your taste. Add as much or as little as you like.

What to do:

Wash and chop your apples into slices or cubes
Put them in a bowl and mix with the sugar and cinnamon.
Heat a pan or skillet with the butter, once the butter has just melted add the apples.
Let the apples cook, mixing occasionally until they are nice and soft. You can let them simmer with a lid for a few minutes.

Meanwhile in a separate bowl, add all of the crumble ingredients and incorporate them all together by rubbing the butter together with your hands so that you get that crumbly texture. Once you are satisfied that it is all mixed nicely check on your apples. We cooked the apples the night before so they had cooled down overnight in the fridge but you can use them hot too.
Put the apples in your dish, you may want to rub a little butter or put some spray butter in there first just so the apples don't stick.
Then put your crumble mixture on top and voila!

Bake in the oven on 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes then inhale the heavenly scent that fills your home!

Let cool or not and enjoy with Bird's eye can use any custard but this is our absolute favourite, apart from when Nanna makes her homemade custard!

Hope you enjoyed this little fall recipe, let us know your favourite seasonal desserts and share pictures with us if you make this recipe too!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

  1. I don't make crumbles personally, I prefer Apple Crisps. It requires oats and it is just delicious. lol
