Super Easy Apple Crumble (best ever!)

I have a confession to make… I have a slight addiction to apple crumble. There’s just something about deliciously soft apple topped with a crunchy sweet crumble that makes me drool. Oh and of course a good scoop of ice-cream on top makes everything even better!

This is called ‘Super Easy Apple Crumble’ because it really is so, so simple. You can’t go wrong (honestly!).

We planted a couple of apple trees a few years ago and this year we’ve been getting so many apples off them. It’s been like apple heaven in our house lately. I’m talking apple pies, apple and berry teacake, apple and sour cream slice, apple crumble muffins, apple and almond teacake, and of course this super easy apple crumble… apple heaven I tell you!

And because we’ve got apples everywhere, I’ve started stewing and freezing them. Good gracious me! Who would have thought you could have too many apples…. well apparently you can!

The key to a really good apple crumble is to have the perfect crumble topping. I find some to be too floury or not crunchy enough. This one is so delicious and you’ll get that gorgeous crumbly crunch!

Now to make this crumble even better, I topped it with the yummiest caramel toffee ice-cream. Holy moly it was good. For me, ice-cream is the only thing to put on top of apple crumble. I know lots of people love cream or custard.. and hey, it’s a personal choice. Go with whatever topping tickles your fancy! But no-one will be taking my caramel toffee ice-cream away from me!

OMG I told you… look at that caramel toffee ice-cream melting all over the plate. Pure sugary perfection, right!?

Oh yes! I am a fan of apple crumble from way back 🙂
It’s great warm there’s not denying, but I love the leftovers from the fridge even more. And it’s fruit and oats so it totally counts as breakfast food in our house 😉
I can’t wait to try your version for our next cozy family dinner! And ice cream is not an option – it’s expected 😉
