Apple Crumble

This apple crumble recipe is insanely easy! Instead of preparing one large dessert, I’ve used ramekins to create 4 single servings. It creates a beautiful presentation.

For the filling

  • 2 tart baking apples (such as Granny Smith), peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

For the topping

  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (use a gluten-free flour blend or almond meal for gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats (use gluten-free rolled oats for gluten-free)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • Optional: Vanilla ice cream for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Prepare the filling: In a medium-sized bowl, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon and salt, stirring until evenly combined.
  • Prepare the topping: In a separate small bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, allspice and salt. Add the melted butter, stirring until evenly combined.
  • Divide the apple mixture between four 7-ounce ramekins. Divide the topping ingredients between the ramekins, spreading evenly over the tops and gently pressing into the filling if there’s any overflow (this will only happen if the apples are very large).
  • Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, until the tops are firm and the filling is tender.
  • Serve hot, preferably with ice cream or a splash of heavy cream. (Note: the ramekins will be very hot, so be careful. If serving a child, I recommend scooping the apple crumble into a different serving bowl to be safe).
  • Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.



You can bake this in one large dish if you prefer (a pie pan would work well). Please read my post for additional recipe tips!
