Apple and Cranberry Crumble

December 27, 2019Sew White

I love apple crumble so I had to put a Christmas twist on it and make Apple and Cranberry Crumble with oat crumble topping. Adding cranberries makes them extra special and perfect for a winter dessert. Cranberry crumble is a perfect dessert for winter dinner parties. An easy crumble to make plus with the topping being an oat crumble it is a healthy pudding too! I hope you enjoy my Christmas Crumble.

I have found a pack of cranberries in the fridge left over from Christmas and since all the roast dinners I am craving fruity things. Okay maybe not the healthiest food but it’s fruit and oats so that is positive at least. Until I added custard. I LOVE CUSTARD. Anyway back to the crumble.

I love the mix of apple and cranberries. They work a treat. Also if you have cranberries left over and don’t want to make them yet then pop them in the freezer. They won’t be the prettiest thing when they come out but they still work really well for dishes like this. Make sure they’re thawing out when you use them.

Recipes for left over cranberries

This is a great recipe for using up that pack of cranberries you have in the fridge you forgot to use over Christmas. Or if you had some and popped them in the freezer to use later. They freeze pretty well especially for something like this as they will be cooked and hidden so don’t need to look their best.

Apple and Cranberry Oat Crumble

This recipe for my Apple and Cranberry Oat Crumble is beautiful. I love adding oats to the crumble. The oats give the crumble topping a beautiful bite which adds flavour and texture. As they cook in the oven they toast slightly and they really taste wonderful.

Normal crumble is good. Oat crumble is even better.

Healthy Oat Crumble

You don’t even need many to make a difference. If I can I will get the big oats as it’s nice to see them but normal supermarket oats is good too. You make the crumble and then stir in the oats. It is also a great way to add some extra goodness to the dish. Oats are gluten free which makes this dish perfect for coeliacs, plus they are filled with fibre so super healthy too.

Gluten Free Crumble Recipe

You can use gluten free flour for this recipe to make it perfect for Coeliacs. For the oats, make sure the oats you use are guaranteed gluten free. Some supermarkets don’t guarantee their oats are 100% GF as they are processed in a factory where gluten is present. Using gluten free flour and assured gluten free oats and you can create this delicious apple and cranberry crumble perfect for gluten intolerant crumble fans and Coeliacs.

Cranberry Christmas Crumble

I love these three C’s. Cranberries, Christmas and Crumbles. United they create something absolutely beautiful and a dish I can’t get enough of. I want more and looking at this I’m already missing it. I need some more cranberries so I can make more.

It’s a lovely way to make a classic winter dish even more special and festive. Cranberries are sharp and they stand out against the soft apple and crisp crumble perfectly. If they are too sharp you can add some more sugar to mix but I think having that combination is what makes this recipe so delicious.

I used these little Le Creuset casseroles to cook them in. They cook really well and perfect for serving too. Look very cute and a good size portion too. It also helped that when we had one left over it was already in it’s own little bowl ready to saved for the next day. Plus we could pop the whole thing straight into the microwave to warm up. Easy peasy delicious Apple and Cranberry Crumble.

apple cranberry crumble recipes

There are so many apple cranberry crumble recipes around but for mine, which you can scroll down to find, I have kept it simple. The fruity part of the crumble is simply apples and fresh cranberries with some lemon juice and sugar. The crumble is plain flour, oats, butter and sugar. You can either rub the flour, sugar and butter together to make bread crumbs and then add the oats in or you can do it all at once. Both work perfectly.

How to make oat crumble for the Apple and Cranberry Crumble

Put the flour, oats and sugar in a bowl and mix together. Add the butter in and rub them together with your fingers and thumb to create a crumble texture.

Set aside until you’re ready to cook. This can last a few days in the fridge. Or even freeze to use later.

On a low heat soften the apples. Add a tablespoons of lemon juice, 4 of water and 1 tablespoon of sugar As they start to soften add the chunks of the eating apples.

When the apples have softened slightly but not falling apart take off the heat and stir in the cranberries. Allow it to cool.

    I bet that crumble is delicious Sisley. Cranberries are just brilliant for giving bursts of sourness that counteract the sweetness so well. I’ve just used the last of mine up in some cakes. Happy New Year.5 stars
