  • Serves

    ½ cup Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
    ¼ cup rolled oats
    ¼ cup desiccated coconut
    ¼ cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    ½ tsp mixed spice or cinnamon
    75g Tararua Butter
    5-6 Granny Smith apples
    2 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
    2 Tbsp Chelsea Raw Sugar or Demerara Sugar


    Pre-heat oven to 190°C conventional or 170ºC fan-forced.

    In a bowl, mix the Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, oats, coconut, Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar and cinnamon together, then rub in the Tararua Butter until the mixture becomes combined and crumbly.

    Peel and cut apples into wedges and place in an oven-proof dish. Drizzle with the Chelsea Golden Syrup.

    Spread the crumble mixture over the top of the apples. Sprinkle the Chelsea Raw Sugar or Demerara Sugar over the top for an extra crunchy topping. Bake for 40-45 minutes until apples are cooked.

    Serve while hot with vanilla ice-cream, cream or custard.


    Try other fruit such as plums, peaches and pears; these work well combined with apples too.

My first time making apple crumble and I'm always going to use this recipe.

I was just wondering if it can be stored in freezers or not!

CHELSEA SUGAR: Yes you could freeze this!

Very tasty, quick and easy recipe. Family request it all the time.

I used half stewed apples and a tin of drained apricots because I didn't have enough apples. It turned out lovely.



Best crumble recipe that I've ever used. So easy to make and so delicious. My husband loves it and he is an apple crumble conisour.

Super easy to make, just waiting a bit longer for the apples to go soft and next time i'm doubling the crumble lol. 4 stars because its just more about my personal preference on more crumble hehe

I love Apple crumble so much when I was little my nana would always make me some apple crumble with vanilla ice cream on top

Can you use royal gala apples?

CHELSEA SUGAR: Hi there, yes you could use Royal Gala apples but the crumble will be a little sweeter.

Best apple crumble I have ever tasted

Great recipe. Liked the addition of Golden Syrup, but omitted the coconut as I don't like it and I think it detracts from the true apple flavour. Easy to make. A classic.

It is soo good

Hi there, long time eater and first time blogger. Is there a sugar free option? I find honey to be a good alternative. I do hope you take this seriously and don't tell me to buzz off lol.

sincerely b

CHELSEA SUGAR: Hi there, you could try swapping the sugar with honey, this may impact the crumble texture of the topping though. Enjoy :)

Brilliant recipe!! Simple and delicious! I am a convert!

Loved it, nice and easy to make and really tasty!

Best crumble I have ever made. Was proud to serve some to that someone special in my life. Have to make him another one now. Highly recommended

Why was there some sort of liquid at the bottom of my apple crumble after I baked it?
CHELSEA SUGAR: Hi there, this was most likely juice from the apples. Some apples can be juicier or more watery than others. Did you use Granny Smiths?

This was the first time I tried apple crumble. yum

Awesome! My 11 year old loves to prepare this recipe, it's so easy and always turns out great!

My brother did it and he failed the first time.

Hands-down the best Apple crumble recipe I’ve made or tasted!

I really did not enjoy this recipe, it is not spreading out awareness for people with sensitive taste buds, and it was not at my preferred temperature.


Found this recipe a bit sweet. I add about a tsp of syrup to the apples and no additional sugar in the crumble topping. Other than that it’s excellent. Has become our go to recipe!

Better than my Mums and so easy to make.

Very tasty - the crumble was more dough like so I rolled it out and placed over the apple/peach mix like a pastry topping - still a good result. When I made it a second time I added more cinnamon and mixed spice for my taste preference.

This recipe delivers me to absolute success with a delicious result that was finger lickin good. Only thing to note is that I used about a 1/8 cup of water on the apples before the crumble to give a delicious moist texture.

Can this be done with pear instead?
Chelsea Sugar:
Yes, you can swap the apples for pears.

Great recipe , my husband can also make this one . Thanks Chelsea

Oh my god!! My sister asks me too make this everyday now. I sooo recommend this recipe :))

It was soo amazing since I don't really like apple crumble!

I'm just about to make this recipe for the family think it will be five stars.Will share my review when I have made and tasted it.

I love apple crumble. This is the perfect recipe.


It was very yum loved it and if you think it was bad then you made it wrong. You should probably get someone else to make it next time because it was amazing.

Loved it. It was gone in 15 minutes.

very sweet but yummy

Fantastic recipe. Everyone loves it!

Very tasty, I love the topping so much I tripled it.

Works perfectly every time, best crumble I have tasted / made, ever.

It is so yuck

It's cool

Loved the recipe! The crumble was delicious and I served it with custard made with soy milk instead of cow's milk and it complimented so well! I also used cooking apples instead as my apples were going a bit soft and the results were great. Would definitely make again.


Easy yummy recipe for a Nana on the go.
I added blueberries to my apple the second time I made this ..that's yum also.

Loved it. I put raspberries in mine as well which gave it that tangy taste. Yum.

This is one of the best Apply Crumble recipes ever! My family absolutely wolfed it down! I actually really like that there was no lemon juice in it as that usually gives it a really intense and slightly weird tangy taste. The golden syrup made this nice and mellow. Yum

I love it! It is very delicious!
The crumble is so delicious!

Love this recipe! The crumble is absolutely delicious, I use this recipe every time and never fails to impress! Although I do double the recipe, as sometimes it’s not enough. All round my favourite recipe! :)

i did not like it!

In my opinion its kinda dry and it needs something little to improve it, sorry my response is a two

I had some pears that had gone a bit too soft for my liking so I used them along with some apples to make this recipe.
In the past I've only ever used rolled out for a crumble topping so it was interesting to use coconut but it turned out well.
Only complaint would be that crumbling the dry ingredients with your hands (as the video shows) is extremely messy and the butter will make it hard to clean your hands.

I would make again but I wouldn't use my hands to crumble next time.

It is a good recipe.

Really good. The topping was lovely, infact i now double it.

Awesome recipe, kids loved it for arvo tea at my after school programme for a change

So good

I did not really like this recipe because I also used regular apples and it turned out great.

Love it

Love this recipe I supervised while my young ones had a go came out just right.

I really did not enjoy this recipe. I followed it exactly, but used proper cooking apple rather than Granny Smith. The crumble top (which I doubled) had good flavour and was crisp and crunchy. The apples did not cook properly and were very watery. If I use this recipe again, I think it would be better to cook the apple first and put the crumble topping over the hot apple before cooking. The result should be a lot better and nicer to eat.

Best thing I've eaten in a long time. I've been living in Australia for 7 years now and was in desperate need of some soul food. The smell of this crumble while baking, instantly took me back to when I was a child and my mother would bake apple or feijoa crumbles through the cold winters of New Zealand, not only did it taste amazing, it definitely warmed the soul....
Thanks for recipe

I love you guys taste great
Great great great

This Apple Crumble recipe is fantastic. It took me 15 minutes to make including peeling the apples, sooo easy and sooo delicious! My family absolutely love it!


This is delicious please try it my family love it.

Have made this twice now using this recipe first this making it and love it. And so do my family thank you

Great crumble.
I sub out fresh apples for canned when I'm in a hurry and also add some berries e.g. blackberries.
Also halve the amount of plain flour and sub it with wholemeal.

First time to bake this and can't believe it' s so delicious and yummy, can't fault it. Have to make this recipe from now on.


I crushed up some bran cereal instead as I didn't have any oats. Had a nice crunch. I crumbled the bran in my hands while I was rubbing the topping ingredients together.


Great tasty and satisfying

As an oldie the recipes are so easy to follow and so tasty thank you

The ingredients mention Cinnamon yet you don't say when to add it. I will presume it is to the apples. I don't want to sound like "that guy" but I am a novice cook and the recipe sounds simple enough for the likes of someone trying to give the kids a treat I enjoyed as a kid.
Chelsea: Sorry! We have fixed the recipe now.

Fantastic so Delish! :)

this was amazing recipe ill have it for breakfeast (sp) but i really wana make it again with my girlfriend and her cooking utensils its amazing

I really like the Chelsea recipes, because they are so easy and this one was no exception! :-) ... With a few variations, my family really enjoy the apple crumble puddings I have made, with CHELSEA's help! :-)

So easy to make and it was so very good too. I doubled the ingredients to make it extra crumbly. This was the first time for me to make this and it turned out really awesome,
Thanks Chelsea for another awesome recipe.

awesome recipe!
