Eleanor’s famous apple crumble

recipe  November 5 2015 by

Ellie our head chef is also our resident baker around here. Her apple crumble is so delicious we made a graze snack out of it. This week, we finally convinced her to give up her secret recipe, so now you can make it for yourself at home!

My mum trained as a chef before staying home full-time, and when I was a kid we used to spend hours creating healthy family dinners from scratch. She'd have all this weird food in the fridge, like kombucha, before it was a thing. I tried quinoa for the first time with her! But her signature dish was definitely this apple crumble.

Ellie, chief taste expert


  • 14 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 14 cup wholewheat flour
  • 13 cup rolled oats
  • 13 cup soft brown sugar
  • 1 dollop butter
  • 112 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 whole chopped apples
  • 34 cup raisins
  • 1 dash water
  • 1 dash maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

Cook the apples with a splash of water for 5-10 mins until they are softened

Remove from heat, stir in the raisins and allow to cool a little

Add a little honey or maple syrup to taste. It should take the edge off the sharpness, but bear in mind the topping is sweet so you want the apples to retain some of their tartness

Mix the flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl

Melt the butter in a pan, pour onto the flour + oat mix, and stir well to combine

Pour the apple mixture into a baking dish and top with the crumble mixture

Bake in the oven for 20-30 mins until golden brown.
