Apple & Berry Crumble

Haven’t really been creating anything much of late so when I was lucky enough to be given some homegrown apples from a friend I had to create an apple crumble!
You can use any fruit you have on hand really and if you have frozen fruit in the freezer just add it to the mix.

This recipe is adapted for my taste and vegan.
Apple & Berry Crumble
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: serves 6
  • 1 kg apples
  • 1½ cups mixed berries (or as many as you'd like)
  • sugar
  • vanilla
  • 350g rolled oats
  • 200g brown sugar
  • maple syrup
  1. peel and core apples and cut them into slices, give them a wash and place them in a pot over medium heat for a few minutes, add a splash of vanilla and a few generous tablespoons of sugar depending on how sweet your fruit is and leave on the stove for another few minutes
  2. preheat oven to 190C/170C fan, place rolled oats and brown sugar into a bowl, mix until combined, add as much maple syrup as you like so it coats the oat mixture, needs to clump together
  3. place apples into 30 x 20cm baking dish, add the frozen berries and top with rolled oat mixture making sure fruit is covered
  4. bake for about 40 minutes or until top is golden and juices bubbling from the sides


As simple as that. 
Happy day to you ♥

  • Oh my goodness! That's even easy enough for me to make. I have to remember to buy some rolled oats and some frozen berries in the morning… and ice cream

  • Yummy, yummy, yummy!!!

    my aunty made apple and raspberry crumble on the weekend and it was the best thing I have ever eaten! It has become my favourite summer dessert.

  • Apple crumble was my childhood signature dish, so I have a lovely relationship with it, even if I feel a little childish when I make it! I love this time of year when the first apples are coming in and the blackberries are ripening on the vines – it sure is apple and berry crumble time! I posted about mine recently although i didn't include the recipe because I really don't really measure anything.

    Oh and that IS creating Cathie – who said it had to be complicated?

    Hope you're enjoying your week, and that everyone's settling in to their new routines. xx Sarah

  • I'm loving your recipe with no butter and maple syrup. How lovely would that taste??? I'm onto it this week. We have crumbles pretty much every week. It's all my men's favourite dessert round here. x

  • You are making my mouth water! I love a crumble with oats, tastes so good.
    Happy day to you. Cat

  • Yum Yum, The Fairy and I are avid fans of crumble, we will be giving this a go.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  • It looks amazingly yummy, sweet Cathie. I like anything apple-y!
    Enjoy your evening, I am off, with umbrella, to take Celeste back home. Will bake some pancakes.
    Love and hugs xoxoxoxo

  • mmmm I do love any kind of crumble – such an easy and tasty dessert. Thanks for reminding me 😉

  • I like your easy crumble recipe – I get turned off by how long it takes to rub butter and flour together! Looks like there will be berry crumble chez quilary tomorrow night- thanks for the recipe.

  • I usually add a handfull of raspberries to mine; in fact, I was planning to make crumble tomorrow 🙂

  • sounds and looks totally divine!

  • Makes me want to eat it!

  • Yum Yum!! Love that it has maple syrup in it!!

  • brings back memories this dish … will make it over the weekend x

  • Yumm – looks good

  • Goodmorning Cathie!
    I never heard of this apple crumble, only as an apple crumble pie, so have to try it out, look good and honestly I think I could smell it right through the screen… or is it my morning imagination… You know, you say that you are not creating, if someone gave me apples, I wouldn't even dream to make something with them, just cut and eat, so in my book you are tres creative with this my dear,
    have a good weekend!

  • The humble crumble is still one of my all time favourite desserts. My life is lacking if it's not injected with regular bowlfuls of crumble.
    Lovely pictures…

  • You know those things that you always want to get around to do or make and they are so darn simple you can't figure out why you haven't done it yet…THIS is one of those things for me…And man does that look good!!!

  • oh i love crumble ~ can never get the topping quite right though, might have to try your version!

  • Pam

    Creative or not Cathie, still sounds yum! Love those easy as recipes. Can't go past them! Rolled oat crumbles with fruit would have to be one of my favs.
    Have a peek at my latest post about bunting. I finally did it!! lol.
    Hope you're keeping well and happy lovely lady! xoxo

  • yum! I really love your recipe posts, Cathie (even though I'm slow to make them…. we made your yummy oat and currant cookies just the other day – thank you!) xo

  • Yum! Great to see that they were enjoyed!! Sorry I missed you the other day.

  • Yummm!!!

  • Yummmmadoodles my sweet friend…you just gave me the perfect idea for dessert tonight… your images.

  • I just had to pop over to get this recipe after seeing the success of Curly Pops crumble. Your recipes are just wonderful.

  • That look delicious Cathie,I just got some rhubarbs the other day to make a crumble…I may mix some apples now 🙂

    Hi Cathie! Glad to hear Amelie is doing better at school, still cant get over how beautiful her birthday pics are, so sweet! I made apple crumble for desert last week, it is the best sweet treat I think, not too sweet but sweet enough to make you feel naughty, not too fattening either, and so so easy to whip up!

  • I have so many apples to use up, and I think this recipe will do the trick. Sounds so delicious. Love the pic of the apples on the log. Perfect.
    Happy Autumn to you!

  • I disagree! This IS creative and gorgeous… I love this type of dessert! I make a similar thing– Blackberry Crumble… yum! So happy to meet you. Following!
