The default recipe serves 4-6. The calorie information is based on 6 portions



For the topping

  • 150g / 5.3oz / 1 cup plain/all-purpose flour
  • 90g / 3.2oz / 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 100g / 3.5oz / unsalted butter, cut into cubes and slightly softened

For the filling

  • 450g / 1lb peeled and cored green apples, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 60ml / 1/4 cup water
  • 250g / 9oz /  1 2/3 cup fresh blueberries


Baking dish – around 28cm x 18cm / 11in x 7in


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. 
  2. Make the topping by mixing together the flour and sugar in a large bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the mixture until it resembles large breadcrumbs. Shake the bowl every now and again so that the bigger pieces come to the top.
  3. Next, make the filing. Place the apples, flour, cinnamon and water into a large saucepan. Place over medium heat and cook for around 5 minutes, until the apples have slightly softened and the sugar has melted with the cinnamon and coated the pieces. 
  4. Stir the blueberries into the mixture. 
  5. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish and then sprinkle the crumble over the top in an even layer. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the topping is golden and crisp and the filling is bubbling. 


  1. While green apples add a sour note that cuts through the sweetness, you can use any kind of apple you prefer in crumble – or a mixture. Just don’t forget to peel them first! 
  2. You can alternatively use thawed frozen blueberries in the filling. 
  3. The topping can also be made in a food processor. Pulse the mixture until you have the desired texture. 
  4. Leftovers can be kept, covered, in the fridge for up to 3 days. For best results reheat in the oven.
