Apple Crumble Recipe

A bowl of sweet, warm apple chunks topped with buttery crumb, is a perfect fall dessert.

I love baking apple pie but this apple crumble takes half the time to make without compromising on the taste.

I serve this with cold, vanilla custard but a scoop of vanilla ice cream is equally delicious. You can pre-assemble and bake before serving which makes this great from busy days.
