Crumble Topping:

  • 1¼ cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125g butter
  • ¾ cup caster sugar

Apple filling:

  • 5 green apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • 100g butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon milk


1. Preheat oven to 160C, and grease and line a 20 x 30cm slice tin with baking paper.

2. To make the crumble topping, in a mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and sugar together. Next, rub the butter into the flour mixture using your fingers until it’s crumbly.

3. To make the apple filling, place all ingredients into a saucepan and cook over a low heat for around 10 minutes, or until apples are soft, then allow to cool. 

4. To make the base, beat the butter and sugar in an electric mixer and until creamy, then add the egg and beat well. Mix through the flour, baking powder, and milk.

5. Press the base firmly into the base of the prepared pan. Top with apple filling, and then sprinkle over the crumble topping.

6. Bake for 40 – 50 minutes or until lightly golden. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
