Ingredients

  • 4-5 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (bramley apples work best)

  • 120g plain flour
  • 90g rolled oats
  • 150g brown sugar

You will also need a large baking dish, a sharp knife, chopping board, and a wooden spoon.

Apple crumble is the perfect desert for autumn and winter; it’s warm, filling, and a classic British pudding. We’ve combined this classic dish with raspberries, which add a gorgeous pop of colour and tartness. Serve with hot, homemade custard or a dollop of freshly whipped cream. 

This recipe is especially handy for dinner parties or large family gatherings. It’s assembled right in the dish that it’s going to be baked in, saving you that ever-so-annoying washing up!

You can adjust the quantities if you need to serve more or fewer people. If you’re hosting a dinner party, you could make and serve your apple and raspberry crumble in individual ramekins, or stick with one large dish if you prefer to serve your food family-style. 


Method

Follow these steps to make our Easy Apple & Raspberry Crumble Recipe

1. Prepare Your Filling

Preheat your oven to 175°C). Peel, core, and chop your apples into 1-2 cm-sized chunks, before adding them to your chosen baking dish along with your raspberries, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. If you’re adding any additional spices, do so at this stage.

2. Toss and Flatten

Toss your mixture until all of the fruit is evenly coated with your cinnamon sugar mixture, and flatten ever so slightly in the dish so that everything is an even layer. 

3. Make Your Topping

If you’re making your own, add your flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, and cold diced butter to a bowl. Using only your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add your chopped pecans if using and give your crumble topping a final mix.

4. Assemble Your Crumble 

If you’re adding shop-bought crumble mix, add this straight on top. If not, sprinkle your homemade crumble topping evenly over the fruit mixture in the baking dish.

5. Bake, Serve & Enjoy!

Bake your apple and raspberry crumble in the preheated oven for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown, and the fruit is bubbling underneath.

Allow the crumble to cool slightly before serving. It pairs beautifully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.

Top tip: Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract before whipping your cream for an extra luxurious flavour.

How do you keep apples from getting mushy in crumble?

If you find that your apples are getting mushy before your crumble topping has had a chance to crisp up and turn golden brown in the oven, you might be chopping your apples up to small. This means that they are over-cooking and not holding their shape in the oven, creating a mushy mixture. 

What Makes Crumble Crunchy?

As your crumble cooks, the butter, flour, and rolled oats crisp up and become golden brown. We recommend adding nuts (such as chopped pecans) to your crumble topping as this makes for an extra crunchy crumble topping. The high heat of baking helps brown the sugars and caramelise them, adding to the crunch.

Is it Better To Make Crumble With Cold or Melted Butter?

It is always better to use cold butter when making your crumble topping. Using cold butter typically results in a crumbly, crisp, and more textured topping. This is because the cold butter remains in solid chunks when mixed with the dry ingredients, creating a crumbly texture and soft, buttery pockets in the topping.

How Long Does Homemade Apple Crumble Last?

When stored in an airtight container in the fridge, homemade apple crumble will last for up to three to four days. To keep your apple crumble for an even longer period, you could consider freezing it. Frozen apple crumble can remain good for 2-3 months or even longer if stored at a consistent temperature in an airtight container.
