Apple Crumble Recipe

Apple crumble (or apple crisp in US and Canada) is a dessert dish of baked apples topped with a crisp crust. This is an easy recipe with only 5 ingredients and no mixer required.

You can bake the crumble in one sharing gratin dish or in individual servings ramekins so that you can serve it directly with a scoop of ice cream. Besides apple, you can also experiment with a combination of apples and rhubarb or berries.


  • 50 grams plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 25 grams butter cut to small cubes
  • 2 tbsp caster or super fine sugar to taste
  • 1 cooking apple such as Golden Delicious & Granny Smith
  • ice cream


  1. Sift the flour and cinnamon powder into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add cubed butter to sifted flour. Using fingertips, gently rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add sugar and mix well with a spoon.
  3. Peel and core the apple. Slice thinly. Arrange apple slices in a greased, shallow baking gratin dish or ramekin(s).
  4. Cover apples with the rubbed-in mixture and press lightly with the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake at pre-heated oven of 200°C (392°F) for about 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly golden brown.
  6. Break crumble to smaller pieces and serve in a dessert glass. Serve hot with a scoop of ice cream.

Noob Cook Tips

  1. Make sure the butter cubes, when added to the flour, is still solid and not melty/liquid.
  2. If the crumble is cooked but the topping is not browned to your liking, you can help brown the crust by using the grill or broil feature of your oven for a few minutes.
  3. If desired, you may also add some uncooked oats to the crumble topping mixture.
