Homemade Apple Crumble with Coconut Sugar

Hey Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

This apple crumble was a bit dry, I kind of freestyle the ingredients but I think it needed a little more butter to make the crumble not so dry but aside from that it’s okay. I’ve use coconut sugar which looks like soft brown sugar and gives this crumble the dark colour. This crumble is not sweet so would go down a treat with lovely warm custard or vanilla ice cream.


4 apples

Cinnamon powder

Optional: 1 tbsp lemon juice

70g butter

50g coconut sugar

120g plain flour

120g oats


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and set aside an oven tray.
  • Wash, peal and finely slice the apples, layer in the bottom of the oven dish sprinkling with cinnamon powder. Add a small splash of lemon juice to stop the apples browning.
  • Next, make the crumble my mixing the butter, sugar, flour and oats together until it resembles bread crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apples and press down slightly.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until golden brown, leaving to cool down before eating.

Apple Crumble

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

So I made an apple crumble one Sunday morning and I realised I’ve never shared a recipe on my blog. I don’t make crumbles that often however, I’ve made quite a few apple based dishes in the past. This recipe was perfect for me and my family, not too much apple and a golden crumble topping with the addition of oats for extra crunch. Apple crumble is a great autumn dessert because it’s so warming and apples are in season. Not only that, it’s super versatile and can be eaten alone, with custard, ice cream or clotted cream. Why not make this for your dessert today!

Recipe: Apple crumble (serves 4)


4 apples, wash and peel

1/3 tsp cinnamon powder

125g plain flour

50g oats

80g brown sugar

110g butter, cubed


  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and get a medium sized square oven dish.
  • Wash and peel the apples, slice thinly and put into the over dish, sprinkling over the cinnamon.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats and sugar together then rub in the butter using your fingers until it resembles large breadcrumbs.
  • Sprinkle the flour mix over the apples and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top.
  • Leave to cool down slightly before eating alone, with custard, ice cream or clotted cream.
