Easy Apple Crumble with Vanilla Custard Sauce

Easy Apple Crumble with Vanilla Custard Sauce

  • Apples - 500gm (about 2-3 medium-sized apples)
  • Wheat flour / atta - 1 cup
  • Salted butter - 100gm + a bit for greasing
  • Sugar - 2tbsp + 2 tbsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Lemon juice - a few drops (optional)
  • Cinnamom stick - 1 (optional)


1. Wash peel and chop the apples. Add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent browning. Mix in 2tbsp sugar and cook on a low fire until soft and mushy. Set aside to cool.

2. Mix salt and 2tbsp sugar with the flour. Lightly mix in the butter without kneading until you get a mixture that resembles bread crumbs.

3. Grease a pie dish/cake tray with butter. Lay the cooked apples evenly. Add the flour mixture evenly on top and press down gently. Sprinkle sugar on top.

4. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for 25-30 mins.


Serve warm with chilled vanilla custard sauce (recipes below).

There are two options for the sauce. An eggless version and a slightly easier version with egg. I make the one with the egg but you pick depending on whether you cook with eggs or not.

Vanilla Custard Sauce (with egg)

Beat with a fork, 1 egg yolk with 1 teaspoon cornflour and add 2 tablespoon sugar with that. Add one cup warm milk and beat well again. Cook on a low fire stirring constantly until pouring custard consistency. Add 1/2 tsp vanila essence, cool, chill and serve with warm apple crumble.

Vanilla Custard Sauce (eggless)

Blend vanilla flavoured custard powder with 1.5 cups of milk and 4 tbsp sugar (adjust to taste). Cook on a low fire until pouring consistency. Cool, chill and serve with warm apple crumble.

I don't bother with triangular shaped pieces. Just pile them on, top up with the sauce and dig in!
