Easy Apple and Rhubarb Crumble

This simple apple crumble recipe is a family pleaser and is so easy to make.



  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180C.

  • 2.

    Place the apple pieces in a saucepan with a little water. Cook until the apples are tender.

  • 3.

    Place the rhubarb in an oven proof dish, add a little water and the caster sugar, cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until the rhubarb is tender.

  • 4.

    Meanwhile combine the flour, brown sugar and rub the diced butter through until you have a consistency that resembles large breadcrumbs.

  • 5.

    Place the rhubarb and then the apples and their juices in an lightly greased oven proof dish, cover with crumble mix and cook for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crumble is a lovely golden brown.


Optional: you can add a cinnamon quill and some lemon zest to the apples when cooking initially to add some more flavour to the crumble

Delicious, but I don't think one has to pre-cook the apples. Added a little cinnamon & some raisins.
