What is a crumble?

A crumble is a classic British dessert that combines cooked fruit on the base with a crunchy, crumbly layer on top . The top, called "crumble," is usually made with a mixture of flour, sugar and butter, creating a crumbly, golden texture when baked. This delicious combination of flavors and textures creates a comforting and versatile dessert that can be adapted to a variety of fruits. It is often enriched with the addition of dried fruits, providing an extra touch of crunch and flavor. Apples are a popular choice, but the versatility of crumble allows you to explore a wide range of fruit options. Perfect to enjoy on any occasion!


  • 4 apples (600 g)
  • 75 g brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A splash of Amaretto liqueur
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 10 g cornstarch

For the crumble:

  • 250 g wheat flour
  • 40 g ground almonds
  • 200 g unsalted butter (it must be very cold)
  • 100 g white sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Let's start by peeling and coring the apples, cutting them into quarters and dropping them into the BRA Infinity 24cm frying pan . Once we have them all, we add the sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, the citrus touch of the lemon juice and a splash of the liqueur. We stir and allow this mixture of flavors to develop for 10 - 15 minutes, over medium heat.

  2. While the apples are cooking in the pan, we are going to prepare the crumble. In a bowl, add the flour and the other ingredients, except the butter (which should remain cold in the refrigerator until the last moment). We stir the ingredients and it is time to add the butter. We cut it into cubes and, with our fingertips, we pinch it, integrating the flour with the butter until we obtain an earthy texture. Once harmony is achieved, we pour this "magic earth" into the pan, over the apples when the 10 minutes we had mentioned of having them on the heat have passed.

  3. We heat the oven to 200 ºC in top-down mode and insert the frying pan (the Infinity has a removable handle so it can be placed directly in the oven*), and we let our crumble bake for 35 minutes.

  4. We remove from the oven and let it cool. When it comes to serving, you can do it as is, but with a little Greek yogurt or vanilla ice cream they are a classic that can't fail. And there are other delicious combinations! Keep reading...

Ideas to accompany your apple crumble

  1. Vanilla ice cream with macadamia nuts and strawberries: a classic, ideal for summer desserts and for Valentine's Day.
  2. Whipped Cream: A generous dollop of whipped cream will further soften the crunchy texture of the crumble. You can play with flavors by adding a touch of vanilla or cinnamon to the cream.
  3. Greek Yogurt: A creamy Greek yogurt will provide a refreshing contrast. You can sweeten it lightly with honey or maple syrup.

  4. Salted Caramel: Salted caramel drizzle* to up the indulgence level. The combination of sweet and salty will perfectly complement the crumble.

  5. Grated Nutmeg: Sprinkle a touch of fresh nutmeg over the crumble to intensify the aromas and give it additional flavor.

  6. Caramel or Toffee Gelato: Add a scoop of caramel or toffee gelato for a decadent experience. The creaminess and rich flavor will make a heavenly match with the crunchy crumble.

  7. Maple Syrup: A splash of maple syrup on the crumble will give a sweet and comforting touch. Plus, it combines wonderfully with cinnamon.

  8. Mascarpone Cheese: Place a spoonful or draw a quenelle of mascarpone cheese next to or on top of the crumble, you will see that this adds a soft and creamy dimension. An Italian touch to delight the palate!

  9. Cinnamon or Vanilla Ice Cream with Cookie Pieces: In the absence of vanilla ice cream with macadamia, or to offer something different, add ice cream that incorporates cookie pieces or even cinnamon for an extra touch of texture and flavor.

apple crumble


  • We have used the Infinity frying pan, so we have done everything in a single utensil (from the heat to the oven and serve!), but if you do not have a frying pan for the oven, what you should do is transfer the apples, after time on the heat, to a 24 cm ceramic or non-stick mold, and then place the crumble on top and bake it in the mold.
  • "Drizzle" is an English term used in cooking to describe the action of gently pouring or spraying a liquid over food, usually decoratively or to add a touch of additional flavor. In the context of cooking, "drizzle" often refers to lightly pouring sauces, syrups, melted chocolate, flavored oils, or other similar liquids over dishes such as desserts, salads, or main courses. The idea is to achieve a uniform and attractive distribution of the liquid on the plate or food when presenting.
