Apple Crumble


  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1¼ cup GF plain flour
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, extra
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅓ tsp cinnamon, extra
  • 100g butter, at room temperature
  • 1¾ cup Freedom Fruit Free Muesli
  • Cream or ice cream, to serve


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 160°C

Step 2

Chop the apples into 2-3cm pieces and place in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir to combine.

Step 3

Allow to cook, stirring regularly, for 5-10 minutes until the apples have softened slightly on the outside but are still crisp throughout.

Step 4

In a small bowl, mix the corn flour with the water to make a slurry and add this to the apples, stirring well. This will thicken the juices in the saucepan so that it coats the apples. Transfer to a 24 x 18cm baking dish and spread into an even layer. Set aside.

Step 5

To make the crumble topping, combine the remaining ingredients except for the muesli in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with your fingers until it starts to clump, then add the muesli.

Step 6

Combine the muesli with the flour and butter mixture until it is mixed through to make a rough crumb. There should be some large clumps as well as some looser crumbs.

Step 7

Tip the crumble mixture into the baking dish, spreading it in an even layer over the apples. Transfer to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.

Step 8

Allow to cool slightly, then serve hot with cream or ice cream.
