Depending on how motivated you are you can replace the can of apples with fresh apples. Don’t forget if you’re using fresh apples first to cook them a little otherwise, and you will have a very hard to eat apple crumble.

The hardest part of this recipe is making the crumble, the apple filling merely is from a can, but as I mentioned above, you can make it from scratch. If you want to be healthy, then you can always try making a paleo friendly apple crumble.

If you’re looking for something to go with this apple crumble, then some delicious vanilla ice cream or some heavy cream goes perfectly with it.

Recipe Tips

  • Adding frozen raspberries to the apple mix makes for a fantastic raspberry and apple crumble. Just remember to defrost the raspberries otherwise you may end up with an overcooked top and a cold apple mix. You can also add many other different fruits to the apple that will make a great crumble. Rhubarb is one of my favorites.
  • If you have the free time, you can use fresh apples rather than tinned. The best way to cook fresh apples is in a saucepan with a little bit of water, sugar cinnamon. It should take about 10 minutes for these are ready for use in the crumble recipe.
  • If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth, you can add some more sugar but be careful as it can become very sickening fast!
  • Altering the apple crumble topping recipe can have a massive change in flavors in the overall recipe. You can try using muesli instead of oats or even sunflower seeds. These are just a couple of examples of things that you can add to the topping mix.
  • If you’re on a gluten-free diet, you can replace the flour with gluten-free flour and the rolled oats for corn flakes (Be careful as some brands do put flour into their corn flakes)
