Mini Apple Crumbles

Being just 2 of us, I find it frustrating that so many recipes serve 6, 8 or even 10. This is especially true with desserts like crumbles. I went hunting for a small recipe for apple crumble, changed it slightly to use healthier wholemeal flour, used 4 small ramekins and viola, mini apple crumbles. 


  • 2 apples
  • 75g plain flour (I used wholemeal flour)
  • 45 g butter, cubed
  • 45g brown sugar
  • 25g porridge oats
  • 1tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC
  • Peel and cut your apples into little bite sized pieces, and put them in a small saucepan with about 2 tbsp of water and maybe a tbsp of sugar.  Cook on low heat for about 15-20 mins, to make the apple bits soft.
  • While that’s cooking, measure out your flour and butter.  Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the cinnamon, sugar and oats to the flour and butter mix, and take the apples off the heat.
  • Add your apples and the sugary liquid in the bottom of the saucepan to the bottom of the oven-proof dish ramekins.
  • Then sprinkle the oat mixture on top.  Bake in the oven for about 20mins.
  • Let it cool for a few minutes, then serve with cream or vanilla ice cream (or custard like we did)
