easiest apple crumble recipe ever made. This recipe is perfect for two people and the recipe can be adjusted to suit numbers of servings.

The first time I had apple crumble was when I moved to the UK and  I haven’t looked back since then. I enjoyed eating it so much I had to learn to make it.
I have perfected how to make it over the years, that I don’t buy from the shops anymore and it’s very easy to make too. One of the easiest dessert created is this apple crumble recipe. You chop the apples, add spices and brown sugar, add to a baking dish then sprinkle over with crumble toppings made with either flour or oats and you can even have both. Yes, it’s that simple!

No dry mess here, the apples are perfectly cooked, the crumble topping is just perfect too, beautifully crisp and not stodgy.

I am not the only one who loves apple crumble and that includes my picky eater too. I won’t lie now, I love my apple crumble with more crisp and crunchy toppings and lots of it.
You can have this dessert any time of the year and for any event too. It is easy to make and one of the best part is that it freezes well should you want to preserve it for a later time. I can also claim that this is a healthy dessert because of the portion size. The ingredients specified in this recipe would only make 2 portions so there is no chance of overdoing it. Thoughtful of me hey!

What is in my apple crumble

Apples obviously, popular types of apples used are granny smith apples but I usually go for Fiji or gala for more sweetness

Grated nutmeg

Cinnamon: about half a teaspoon


Butter: melted butter or softened

Light Brown Sugar

It is unbelievable how something this easy can be very delicious and almost addictive This is a comforting dessert and every spoonful either with custard, or vanilla ice cream would take you to some sort of dessert heaven.

I don’t have much dessert recipes on the here but I am positive about this garri chocolate truffle, chocolate apple pie and easy vanilla sponge cake. You can’t say no to them, they are so delicious.

  • Bake apple crumble for 30-40 minutes or until crisps and golden. Serve immediately with custard, cream or ice cream


  • You can use equal amount of butter as the flour but I prefer to use less butter 
  • Use two apples if you feel the size of the apple you have is not big enough to serve 2.

    I loved your recipe, I used Braeburn apples (2 small ones), I didn’t have nutmeg so I used a tiny amount of ground allspice to go with the 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon – I cooked mine for about 55 mins (gas mark 4) and sprinkled a little caster sugar on top when it came out of the oven. I will definitely be making more apple crumbles, this was delicious.
