Apple Crumble Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour

Serves: 4

Difficulty: Easy

This apple crumble recipe is delicious and is made the same as the traditional pub classic. It is simple and easy to follow our step by step guide, make it while the roast is in the oven so you can chuck it straight in when you serve dinner. Apple crumble originated in the UK, and in our household, we have it for dessert after our roast dinner every Sunday night.

As a family, we eat this and no one goes without having seconds or thirds depending on your bowl size! This is the best crimble-crumble (our children call it this) you will ever taste! This is a vegan recipe using dairy-free butter and soya cream to serve, however, you can use the ingredients that you have on hand.


  • 180g plain flour (preferably organic)
  • 80g vegan butter or if preferred normal margarine
  • Granulated sugar (50g)
  • Gala apples (4)
  • Cinnamon (1/4 tsp)
  • Cream, custard, or vanilla ice cream


  • Peel and core the apples, chop them into small bite size chunks
  • Add butter and sugar to the flour mix into a crumble, use your fingers to make it resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Boil 1 cup of water in a small pan, add the diced apples, cinnamon, and soften for 10 minutes
  • Drain off most of the liquid, saving some to help cook the crumble mix.
  • Add to a deep oven dish and top with the crumble mixture and a little sprinkle of sugar on top to caramelise.
  • Cook for 25-35 minutes on Gas mark 6 (200°C, 400°F) or until golden and crisp on top. Serve with cream, custard or your favourite vanilla ice cream!
