Delicious Dairy Free Apple Crumble

Who doesn’t love a warm apple crumble with custard? I know I do, it’s a real comfort food for me. We are really lucky at the moment as the house we are living in has a huge apple tree in the garden. The boys have been collecting them and asking me to bake with them, so the other day that is exactly what we did, making a delicious dairy free Apple Crumble.

We picked the apples from the garden and then chose the best ones to make the apple crumble with. The recipe below is for a dairy free apple crumble so that Ava could have some too. You can also make it with normal butter and custard if you prefer.

  2. This looks really good. I have never lived in a place cold enough for apple trees. Although we have litchi, mango and avo trees! Maybe we could swap!

    Apple crumble is my favourite pudding. I would have to ruin the dsiry free theme though by putting a large blob of cream on top……yummm…..


  12. Oh I love apple crumble! Strangely though I’m the only one in the house who eats it, so I haven’t made it for ages!
