Apple Crumble

This is a very good apple crumble recipe shared by my friend CKY. The toppings are crunchy and I particularly like the addition of walnuts. It is a MUST for this recipe. This is simple and can’t really go wrong as you serve it warm with vanilla ice cream!  

Yield: 4 servings


1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 tbsp finely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 tbsp white sugar + 1 1/2 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
3 large tart-sweet apples (e.g. Gala, Granny Smith), peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch cubes

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, walnuts, 1.5 tbsp white sugar, brown sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  2. Pour melted butter into dry ingredient mixture. Mix with a fork until blended into large chunks. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, toss apple cubes with the rest of white sugar (1.5 tbsp) and cinnamon (1/2 tsp).
  4. Divide the apples among 4 ramekins and top each with the crumb mixture equally.
  5. Bake for 30 -35 min until the apple is soft and the topping is browned.
  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.
