Simple Apple Crumble Slow Cooker Recipe – Serves 4

The apples in this crumble will be very soft when dished up, so it will be as described – a bit of a crumble – just top with some custard for a tasty and warming pud!

You will need:

1 x Standard Slow Cooker

125grams/4oz of Plain Flour (I use wholemeal)

125grams/4oz of Butter (or you could use solid baking margarine for a more frugal alternative)

125grams/4oz of Light Soft Brown Sugar

75grams/3oz of Rolled Oats (I use Scottish)

3 x Large Cooking Apples (or 6 x Eating Apples)

1 x Large spoonful of Golden Syrup (or any other sweet syrup you have to hand such as Maple?  I haven’t tried it yet but bet it’s nice…)


1. Sift plain flour into a large bowl and add cut up small pieces of the butter (this will be easier if the butter has been softened slightly – or just left out of the fridge for a while before using)

2. Rub the flour and butter together until all combined

3. Rub in oats and sugar and put bowl to one side

4. Peel and core the apples and cut large apples into 8 pieces (quarter first then half again), or smaller apples into quarters.

5. Place the apples in the bottom of the slow cooker, as evenly as possible

6. Pour on a large spoonful of syrup evenly over apples (to your taste)

7. Spread the sticky crumble mixture on top evenly

8. Turn heat setting to low and leave for 4 hours, then turn to warm until ready to eat.

Serve with Fresh Custard or Vanilla Ice-Cream (I like it with Fresh Cold Custard!)

*As always, if you require bigger portions or are cooking for a larger family then double quantities and use a large slow cooker.
