Irish Oaty Apple Crumble

A delicious Irish oaty apple crumble. Best served warm with cream!

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

For the crumble:

150g plain flour

150g jumbo oat flakes

175g light brown Sugar

200g cold butter, cut into pieces

Single Cream, to serve

For the filling:

600g apple, cut into chunks

1 tbsp plain flour

60g brown sugar

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Large mixing bowl

Baking tin

60 mins
Serves 4

Crumble has to be one of the easiest desserts to prepare and it is extremely easy to adapt, using whatever fruit is in season. You can vary the ingredients for the crumble mix itself, I sometimes use wholemeal flour and nuts, though I’m a complete stickler for using jumbo oats as they really give the dessert a crunchy, nutty texture. Cream, custard or ice-cream to serve is simply essential!

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Place the flour, oat flakes, brown sugar and butter in a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub all the ingredients together until it resembles chunky breadcrumbs.
In a large baking tin, toss the apples with the flour, sugar and lemon juice until combined. Add the crumble mix on top of the filling and spread over the top until everything is evenly covered.
Bake in the oven for 35–40 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden brown and the fruit is soft and bubbling beneath. Serve in generous portions with a drizzle of fresh cream.

    Hi Donal, I am a fellow Irishman, I am writing to you high above the Arctic circle in the Lofoten Islands in Norway. Last night the museum I work in had a cake competition – there were many very sugary and sweet cakes present, but one Irish Oaty Apple Crumble stood out the most! Your recipe won first place for tastiest cake! Your video style is really easy to follow, well done and thank you! :) (there was also a competition for best name, but I don’t think everyone got the reference)

    Hi from Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia! It seems your mighty apple crumble is taking over the world :) I’m busy here preparing 10 of them to feed 50+ Russians tomorrow for a cultural event. Ciara from Cork :)

    • Wow! That’s so cool! Send me picture and I hope they liked it! :)

  • I tried it once following the recipe as it is and found the lemon taste was too overpowering. So now I’m giving it another go without it and added cinnamon as well! I can tell you my house smells AMAZING! Thank you so much for this <3

    • That’s what baking is all about. Chop and change to suit your own tastes! I hope you liked it 2nd time around. :)

    How can I best prepare thi crumble the night before I need to bake it?? Looks scrummy!

    • You could a few things…Make it in full and just reheat when you need it. Or make the crumble and just chop the apples right before baking. If you do the apples in advance and don’t bake it off, they might go brown. Hope that helps!

        Thanks. Worked perfectly and was yum!

    Just put an apple and blackberry crumble in the oven, well 2, one from each of my helpers Maya and her friend Leon. We all tasted topping before baking and it was yummy!
