Easy Apple Crumble 5 0 5 5

Serve with ice cream or cream or custard or whatever you desire.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 30 mins
  • 5 mins

    1 hr 30 mins

    1 hr 35 mins

  • Yields: 4-5 servings


125 grams butter (or Nuttlex for dairy free)

1 cup plain flour

1 cup white sugar

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 large canned Apple pie fruit (approx 800g tin) eg Ardmona.


1Lightly grease your slow cooker.

2Put the apple pie fruit into the bottom of the slow cooker.

3Blend butter, sugar, flour and coconut in a food processor until well combined then spread the mixture on top of the apple pie fruit until covered.

4Cook on high for 1.5 - 2 hours using the tea towel trick, until crumble has a golden top.


1You may sprinkle some cinnamon to the apple pie fruit before you add the remaining ingredients on top. My kids don’t like cinnamon so I sprinkle some on top of my own serving after it’s been cooked.

2Serve with ice cream or cream or custard or whatever you desire.

3** This recipe was originally for cooking in the oven at 180 oC for 40 mins. I decided to try out the same recipe in the slow cooker whilst travelling in the caravan (it has no oven) and it turned out well. With no food processor for the crumble mixture, I just creamed the soft butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon and then stirred in the flour & coconut.

4I used a 5.5L Sunbeam oval shaped slow cooker for this recipe but doubled the recipe when I used a bigger rectangular slow cooker at home.

Very very delicious. I sprinkled a little cinnamon on the apple before putting the crumble on and soooo good.

Didn’t have any dessicated coconut so added some rolled oats and chia seeds into it. Delicious 😊

I made this, but the crumble didn’t crumble. Would it be because I didn’t use the sugar?
I’m going to finish it off in the oven.
