Equipment Needed

Will I need any special equipment for this toffee apple crumble?

Nothing special needed, and because we use cheat ingredients, you’ll literally just need four things to put this crumble together!

  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Pie dish or casserole dish or other ovenproof dish – you can also use a small roasting tin
  • Spoon

Sticky Toffee Apple Crumble Ingredients

You’ll only need three ingredients to make this gorgeous autumn pudding.

  • Large Bramley apples – peeled, cored and sliced (or use any other cooking apples)
  • Toffee sauce – I used the Joe & Seph’s Sticky Toffee Sauce to make our crumble, but supermarkets do their own brand toffee sauce which works just as well. Using shop bought sauce, just cuts out the need to be bubbling up your own caramel sauce in a saucepan.

  • Crumble topping – I usually make my own crumble topping but I found this little product in the supermarket – Crumble Topping from McDougalls, so feeling a tad lazy I thought I’d give it a try.

Toffee Apple Crumble Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this toffee apple crumble in a different tin/tray?

You can use pretty much any oven safe dish or bowl to make your crumble. Just make sure it’s appropriately sized for the filling. You can use a pie dish, casserole dish or a small roasting tin. They’ll all work just fine.

Can I make this toffee apple crumble into individual portions?

Yes, totally, just get yourself some little oven safe ramekins and divide the ingredients between the individual pots. They’ll also probably cook in less time too, so adjust the cooking times and keep an eye on them as they bake.

Can I freeze this toffee apple crumble?

You can freeze this crumble – baked or unbaked. I usually freeze in the dish I baked it in (which is freezer safe). They last around 3 months in the freezer. However, the crumble topping does soak up some of the fruit moisture so can get a little soggy.

To use – defrost in the fridge over night and then reheat (or cook) in the oven until piping hot throughout.

How long does toffee apple crumble keep?

Once cooled, you can keep this apple crumble in the fridge for 2-3 days. Or in the freezer for around 3 months.

Can I make toffee apple crumble ahead?

Yes, toffee apple crumble is fine made a couple of days ahead, and kept in the fridge.

How should I store toffee apple crumble?

Once the crumble has cooled down, cover the top with tin foil and store in the fridge.
