Apple crumble is a fragrant English dessert with a juicy fruit filling and crispy crumbly dough.

“Crumble” means “crumb”, which perfectly fits the look of this dish. Instead of a sponge, the base of the pie is shortcrust pastry crumbs or cookies with added butter and slices of sweet apples.

To make the crumble pie, choose hard apples that do not turn into purée under heating. To make the dessert low in calories and even healthier, replace shortcrust pastry with oatmeal. When baked, it becomes crispy and has a subtle nutty flavour. The British like to serve the crumble hot with a scoop of ice cream. The slowly melting ice cream reveals the flavour of the dessert, making it more juicy, fresh and delicious.

Apple Crumble: Traditional Recipe

The shortcrust pastry for apple crumble can be stored in the freezer for the whole month. Wrap the dough in cling film and freeze it. When you want to treat yourself again, just grate the frozen dough, put it on a layer of fruit and bake it in the oven.
