A warm soft apple base with a crispy crumbly top. This recipe is so easy. It is a family favorite. Although my child Lucy can not see this wonderful dessert she absolutely loves it with warm custard.

Not only is this incredible easy but it easy to substitute the flour and butter for gluten-free and dairy-free versions too. It tastes absolutely superb! I used double the amount of the crumble mixture though.

I thought this was a delcious recipe I just added less flour and more oats to the crumble and it was delicious. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone.

Couldn't be easier and nice blend of spices. I followed the directions and was happy with the results. Never knew this fall classic could be this easy. Great desert when you're in a hurry. I did add some sliced plums from our tree and topped with whipped cream. Yum will be using often
