I have shared many crumble recipes over the years but this year we’ve started to make a new flavour – apple blueberry crumble. We always have blueberries in the house – sometimes fresh blueberries and sometimes frozen blueberries – and apples are a staple in our fruit bowl. So this is a recipe we make often.

Apple and Blueberry Crumble Recipe

What is a crumble?

A crumble is a really lovely British dessert, often called a crisp in other parts of the world. It has a layer of fruit, covered in a crumbly pastry topping and is served warm with custard, ice cream or cream. It’s one of my absolutely favourite desserts – especially this easy apple blueberry crisp.

How to make apple and blueberry crumble?

A blueberry apple crumble is super easy to make – literally putting cut up apples and blueberries in a dish and covering with crumble topping before baking in the oven.

For this apple & blueberry crumble recipe we literally use whatever apples we have at home. You don’t need to use cooking apples as any eating apples will taste great. Granny Smith apples are some of our favourites. It also doesn’t matter if the apples are slightly past their best, any apples work well in a crumble. It’s a very forgiving dish.

If using cooking apples you might want to add a tablespoon of lemon juice and sprinkle a little sugar over the fruit before adding the crumble topping to combat some of the tartness of the apples.

For this blueberry apple crumble recipe you can use fresh or frozen blueberries – meaning that you can make it all year round. If using frozen blueberries you don’t need to defrost them before cooking or even cook for longer, literally just put them in the dish whilst you make the crumble topping and, once in the oven, they’ll cook beautifully.

For the apple blueberry crumble topping we use plain all purpose flour, unsalted butter and light brown sugar but salted butter, margerine and other types of sugar all work well. Crumbles have been around for generations and they are a recipe that can be adapted easily to use whatever you have in the kitchen. Granulated sugar and caster sugar both create a great finished bake. 

We also often add a handful of oats to our crumble topping as well to add a little extra texture and a new flavour.
