5-Ingredient Individual Apple Crumble

This recipe for single-serving apple crumble is on my list of ’emergency recipes’. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, but you’ll need to be patient while it’s in the oven. Don’t worry, the wait will be worth it. It has the perfect ratio of apples to crumbs, which means – lots of crumbs. Just don’t forget to serve it with vanilla ice cream!

If you’re looking for some other emergency recipes, try my chocolate fondant, one-bowl brownies, or peanut butter fudge.

5-Ingredient Apple Crumble
Yields: 2 servings
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and sliced into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Streusel Topping:
  • 3½ tablespoons (30 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons (25g) granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) unsalted butter, melted
  • optional - 1½ tablespoons old-fashioned oats, chopped pecans or walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  2. To make the apple filling: In a small bowl, toss apples with sugar and cinnamon. Divide apples into 2 individual ramekins, and press them slightly. Set aside.
  3. To make the topping: Mix flour and sugar, then add melted butter. Mix with a fork, until mixture clumps together into crumbly balls. Mix in oats and nuts, if using. Sprinkle crumble evenly on top of the apple mixture.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes, until topping is golden brown and apples are tender. Serve warm and top with ice cream if you want (how can you not want?).

    Hi there, just want to say I’ve made this recipe twice now (once as written and the other time doubled) and it’s SO GOOD! Apple crumble is a traditional recipe here in the U.K. and you totally nailed it 😉
    Just to still add for anyone who makes this recipe without the optional add-ins, you’ll have to add a bit extra flour, but no worries just a spoonful or two and it’ll look just right!

      I like to use a variety, usually Pink Lady and Granny Smith.
