Homemade Spiced Apple Crumble

The weekend is all about baking and creating great recipes. My boyfriend’s all-time favourite desert is Apple crumble, so I decided to make him a spiced apple crumble to warm our hearts on a cold Saturday night.


For the crumble:
100g of plain white flour (Doves Farm)
75g of unsalted butter (cubed)
75g demerara sugar
25g gluten free rolled oats
25g of chopped nuts
½ tsp of cinnamon to top

For the filling:
2 Bramley apples
3 Granny Smith apples
150g of golden caster sugar
1 Tsp of corn flour
4-5 tbsp of water
1 ½ tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees or 150 fan assisted

Peel, core and cut the apples into cubes and place them in a bowl

Add the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and corn flour to the apples and combine

Add the 4-5 tablespoons of water to thin the mixture

Place the apples in a deep oven proof dish (preferably a Pyrex dish) and place in the oven for 10 minutes

While the apples are cooking, in a separate bowl add the plain flour and butter (cubed). Rub the mixture together until it resembles breadcrumbs

Add the sugar, chopped nuts and oats and combine with hands

Remove the apples from the oven and stir

Top the cooked apples with the crumble mixture and then sprinkle cinnamon  to top

Place back in the oven for 25-30 minutes

Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving

I like my apple crumble served with icecream – but serve as you wish. This went down really well with Peter for a Saturday night treat!
