Recipe Book Autumnal Apple Crumble

Nothing says autumn like good food, and as much as it’s been a while since I’ve shared some recipes on the blog, I thought I’d start it up again with a favourite – Apple Crumble!

  1. Looks amazing. I love apple crumble and can’t wait to give this a try. Never thought about clotted cream on anything but a scone before but that sounds like a winner

    1. Thank you! Clotted cream is a Cornwall staple I think! I think my tweaked recipe is the best but I’m a bit biased, I reduced the sugar and made more crumble topping, it works for me haha!

    1. Thank you! I love a good crumble, since this one, I’ve had apple and blackberry crumble as well!!
      I might have to buy some rhubarb soon! You’ll have to share if you make one 🙂

      1. I’ll definitely share if I make one. I love a good crumble – can’t remember the last time I had a blackberry one. We used to go blackberry picking when my sister and I were younger.

  2. It’s definitely the season for warm bakes and hearty cooking! A crumble would be lovely right now, but I am not a good baker. Tonight’s dinner is proof of that. 🙈
