Easy and Cosy Spelt Apple Crumble

Autumn and Apple Crumble go hand in hand. I don’t think I need to point that out really. I mean you guys already know that.. Over the years, I have made countless apple crumble recipes and this one is amongst the best I have ever had/tried. Most people can put together an apple crumble without much thought and without a recipe. It usually happens when there are surplus apples knocking about and everyone needs something that is warm and cinnamony and delicious in their bellies. Mainly because it is fuss free and anyone can make it.

In this recipe I have used spelt flour because it is nutty and adds a delicious dimension to this incredible dessert. Also spelt flour is easier to digest but if you can’t get hold of it, you can swap it 1:1 with plain flour.

Autumn is ticking along slowly and I am so grateful that it isn’t yet toe curlingly cold. I am absolutely behaving as though it is that cold and having large, warm bowls of soup and apple crumbles because autumn food is so good.

Seriously this is one of the best apple crumbles ever. I love the crumbly topping, and even more because in this recipe it’s heaped over those gorgeous cinnamon sugar apples. I have made a variety of crumble toppings in the past including ones with hazelnuts, pecans, dark chocolate and oats.  

What apples do I use for this crumble? Simply put, you can use any apples that you like! Check out this list of British apples that you can use. My personal favorite for this recipe is Cox, Bramley or Braeburn. I peel the apples because I know my son wouldn’t eat it with the skins on but feel free to leave the skins on if you prefer.
