apple crumble

note: * original recipe has been amended; makes 6 x 12cm ramekin dishes

  • 7 large green apples
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ¾ cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ¾ walnut kernels (chopped) *
  • ¾ cup coconut
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 2 tsp nutmeg (ground)
  • cup butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C *
  2. Peel and core apples, then cut into rough 1-2cm cubes. Place apples in large saucepan and cover with water. Simmer covered with lid on high until apples are tender but not too soft (usually 5-10mins once water is simmering). Drain apples well and place in large bowl
  3. Combine caster sugar and cinnamon (ensures even spread), then toss through the apples.
  4. Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, walnut kernels, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until evenly mixed through.
  5. Melt butter (do not burn or boil it) and add vanilla essence to butter, stir through.
  6. Add butter mix to dry ingredients and mix well using a fork. Ensure all ingredients are moist and mixture has a crumbly texture.
  7. Place apple mix evenly in ramekin dishes *. Spread crumble mix over top of apple. Bake in the oven for 30-40minutes, or until crumble topping is slightly browned.
  8. Serve with vanilla icecream, cream, or custard.
