Homemade Apple Crumble

Homemade apple crumble with freshly apples picked from the garden is one of my all time favourite puddings. It is so delicious and full of fruity flavour that it has become one of the nation’s most cherished and loved puddings suitable for all ages and on any occasion.

Our favourite time is after a Sunday roast when you can collapse on to the sofa after a good feed and with a very full tummy for a little chill out or even a snooze if you’re lucky!

This homemade pudding is great for freezing too. I’ve made these apple crumbles in small dishes so that I can freeze them and defrost individual portions when I need them. Alternatively, you can use a larger ovenproof dish which is more suitable when baking for larger numbers.

Gluten free. Dairy free. Soya free.


For the stewed apples:
  • Cooking apples
  • Brown sugar
  • Water


For the crumble topping:
  • 300g sieved plain flour
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 200g dairy free margarine
  • Optional – a tablespoon of gluten free oats
  • Optional – broken pieces of dark chocolate


For the stewed apples:
  • Peel, core and cut the apples up into small pieces.
  • Pop the apples in to a saucepan over a medium heat with some water and a dollop of dairy free margarine.
  • Add the sugar and allow to stew until the apples start going mushy and resembling more of a lumpy puree.
  • Keep stirring and add more water if necessary.


For the crumble topping:
  • Sieve the flour in to a bowl and stir in the sugar.
  • Rub the margarine in to the mixture with your finger tips until it resembles breadcrumbs.


To assemble the apple crumble:
  • Spoon the puree in to the bottom of an oven proof dish. Choose either small mini portions, or a larger family size dish.
  • Add the broken up pieces of dark chocolate (optional)
  • Sprinkle the breadcrumb topping over the stewed apple mixture.
  • Use a table spoon to scatter the oats over the top (optional).
  • Pop the crumble in to the oven for 15-20 minutes at 180C or until the topping starts to brown.
  • Scoop out and serve immediately or allow to cool for reheating later.
