Apple crumble...

We can't deny it: winter is coming. I can feel its breath in the air. I don't know why but when I think of winter, I think of apples and cinnamon. It's my favourite combination and yesterday I tried a new recipe that was passed by a good friend of mine (thank you, Blue!). Apple crumble... mmm... sweet heaven in mouth… We ate it almost all at once and we’re sure we’ve found a perfect warming up treat for this coming winter.

1 kg apples
1 cup instant oats
¼ cup coconut shreds
½ cup flour
½ cup sugar
125g butter

Peel apples and dice them, mix them with a bit of sugar and cinnamon and simmer for about 10 minutes on a low heat.

Mix all dry ingredients. Add soft butter (cut into chunks) and rub it properly until mixture becomes crumbly.

Place warm apples in ovenproof dish and cover them with crumbs.
Bake in 180 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice-cream and enjoy! (Believe me, you will…)

(Apple crumble just before putting it into oven. No picture after baking was taken- we ate it immediately! ;) )


  1. I can not wait to try this!! In honor of you and your birthday I am going to post a recipe for chicken soup. I know everyone has their own recipe, but my friend passed her's to me and I think it is a great help for cold and depression! I wish I was there to share the apple crumble! xoxo

  2. yum.
    love the way you shot these pictures too.

  3. Yum! Might have to try this recipe--the coconut probably adds an extra layer of awesomeness! Bur right now, I think I'll have to go get an apple from the basket. Your photos make them look delectable.
