Apple Crumble


Recipe Credit Farzana Kumandan @sprinklesandspicect


For the dough:

  • 250g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the filling:

  • 5 large Granny Smith green apples (sliced & peeled)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • A few cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods
  • 1/3 cup apricot jam


Cream the butter, sugar and eggs. Add vanilla. Sieve all the dry ingredients and combine to the wet ingredients in a mixer to form a dough.

For the filling, cook apples, sugar, water and cinnamon and cardamom for 10 to 15 minutes until tender, and the liquid is glossy and slightly syrupy. Leave to cool.

In a greased, standard pie dish, roll ¾ of the dough out to form a base. Layer the apricot jam. Add the filling. Grate the remainder of the dough (chill in the fridge before grated) on top of the filling to form the crumble.

Bake at 180 degrees for 20 min to ½ hour or until the crumble turns a golden brown.

Serve with dessert cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.
