Salted Caramel Apple Crumble

Ayushi Gupta-Mehra | The Foodie Diaries
This cosy Apple Crumble is rustled up with just five ingredients, chief among them Salted Caramel which adds a sweet-and-salty edge to the proceedings! We recommend baking this dessert in small ramekins and serving with scoop (or two!) of ice cream.

For The Crumble


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C

Prepare The Apple

  • Peel, core and slice your apples into bite-sized cubes (make sure to remove the seeds or other inedible parts).
  • Heat a skillet, adding the butter and then the apples. Cook the the apples over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes or so (regularly stirring), until they start to soften. We are not looking to over-cook the apples here (they will be baked in the oven), but to simply draw out the moisture and soften them a bit.
  • Remove from heat and dollop on the salted caramel, tossing until the apples are evenly coated with that gloriously sweet and sticky caramel sauce.

Prepare The Crumble Topping

  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
  • Cut the butter into little pieces and rub it into the dry flour mixture with your fingers. You can also just use a stand mixer/ hand mixer to do the job more neatly for you! But if you prefer large, heavier clusters of crumble, then the rubbing method works best.

Bake Your Crumble

  • Distribute the caramel-coated apples between the ramekins, spreading a layer of crumble evenly on top.
  • Bake the crumble for anywhere between 20-30 minutes, until it has a firm golden-brown top and you can see the caramelised apples bubbling around the edges (if you’re lucky some caramel clusters might find their way to the surface of the crumble too!).
  • Transfer the ramekins to a wire rack and let them cool before tucking in with a dollop more of salted caramel or a scoop of ice cream.
