Baking Together: Apple Crumble

Apple crumble has been one of my autumn favourites since as long as I can remember. And as it’s so quick and easy to make, I think it’s a nice one for making together with kids! So today we’re sharing how Penguin and I usually go about making our apple crumble:


List of ingredients:

2 Bramley apples

c. 2 spoonfuls of sugar

(a sprinkling of cinnamon, optional!)

(for the crumble topping:)

150 grams of butter/Stork or other baking fat

200 grams of flour

A pinch of salt

50 grams of granulated sugar





Step 1: Get your ingredients ready, as well as a cutting board, knife, scales and a bowl, and of course a dish to make the crumble in. Turn the oven onto about 220 C/Gas Mark 7. Wash your hands and your apples, then get started!


Step 2: Cut your apples up and places them in the dish. Sprinkle them with a couple of spoonfuls of sugar, and perhaps also a little cinnamon, if you fancy.


Step 3: Now it’s time to make the crumble topping. Put the butter/margarine in a large bowl in smallish lumps or cut into pieces (depending on how firm the type of fat you’re using is). Then add the flour, sugar and a pinch of salt.


Step 4: Mix it using your finger tips, until you get a crumbly texture. (Penguin isn’t super comfortable with this bit, so I usually do most of the ‘crumbling’.)


Step 5: Sprinkle the crumble topping over your apples, then place in the oven (somewhere near the middle) for about 15-20 mins.


Step 6: Serve up and enjoy! I love vanilla ice cream or custard with mine. Penguin mostly likes the crumbles, and isn’t keen on ice cream or custard. How do you like yours? x
