Hey Lovelies, 

Sunday’s are often spent in my house getting up early and heading to a car boot sale, before coming back, sorting the house for the week and baking. I love to make a dessert for my parents to enjoy after their traditional Sunday roasts. For some, it is strange that as a person with an eating disorder I like to cook and bake so much. However, for me, it brings me a sense of calm and joy to be able to do so.

One thing that I have become better at making, thanks to a lot of practice is bread. And the most autumn based food - crumbles. Give me some apples, rhubarbs or a mixture of plums, pears and more and I can make you a crumble. Sprinkled with sugar and filled with love, it is my go-to dessert for any occasion. It is also great for using leftover fruit that is about to go off too.

I am in no way a Mary Berry, but I wanted to share with you all my recipe for making an apple crumble. A recipe that I hope will keep you all warm and toasty on this chilly Sunday…

What You Need:

  • A Large Bowl
  • Saucepan
  • A Dessert Spoon
  • A Wooden Spoon
  • An Oven Proof Serving Dish


  • 4 or 5 Cooking Apples/Normal Apples (You decide which you prefer lovelies, but if you are using normal ones, you may need to use more)
  • 100g of Caster Sugar, Plus, Two Extra Tablespoons
  • 200g Plain Flour
  • 100g Butter
  • Cinnamon/Mixed Spices (Optional)
  • Raisins (Optional)


  1. First, peel and chop the apples into chunks. You can make them big or small depending on how you would like them. 
  2. Then either add them to the saucepan, along with three tablespoons of the sugar or straight into the serving dish. If you prefer your apples mushier, than boil them for around 5 to 10 minutes on a high temperature, before placing in the serving dish and leave to cool whilst you make the crumble. If you prefer them chunky, sprinkle the sugar on top, give it a mix and then just cook them in the dish once you have put the crumble on top lovelies. You can also add raisins or spices to the mixture if you would like to. 
  3. Next, grab your large bowl and add the flour, remaining sugar and butter. Then, using your hands rub together to make a bread crumb-like texture. 
  4. Spoon the crumble mixture on top of the apples and use your spoon to flatten the top. Then sprinkle the two tablespoons of sugar to the top. You can also add cinnamon or the mixed spices here as well if you like. 
  5. Pop the dish into the oven and cook at around 180c for around 30 minutes or when the top has a golden colour. 
  6. Once ready, grab it out the oven, serve it up and enjoy with warm custard or cream. 

Happy apple crumble day lovelies! What do you like to bake in the autumn?
