My Take on the Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

What’s a long weekend without a little dose of baking, heh? To slow down your chocolate intake, help yourself with a portion of my favorite apple crumble. It’s sweet but except for the crumble itself, it’s a pretty light dessert so you can easily indulge without too much remorse. Plus, it’s super simple to do, do you need any more reasons? ;-)

you'll need

  • 6 apples
  • 150g flour
  • 120g butter
  • 120g brown sugar


  • Cut the butter into small cubes and let it soften to room temperature in a bowl. Add the flour + sugar and blend with the tips of your hands until you get a sandy pastry. Set aside.
  • Peel your apples, cut them into tiny cubes and store them in a (previously buttered) pan. I like to make mine in individual ramekins, but you can do as you like. If you’re a fan of cinnamon, now is the time to sprinkle your apples with it!
  • Spread the pastry homogeneously on top of the apples and put in the oven for about 40 minutes at 150°C. Serve while it’s warm.

  • My favorite dessert is the traditional apple pie but its just impossible to make at home, atleast for me! This looks like something I can whip up at home! At long last I can have as much apple crumble as I want! Thanks for the recipe Léa!

    • Ah the apple pie is a tough one, yes! I posted a recipe a while ago but I admit it is a little more complex than this crumble! You’re welcome Divya! x
