Thermomix Apple Crumble

This Thermomix Apple Crumble is a nourishing winter dessert that takes minutes to prepare.  Served with piping hot custard, freshly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, it’s comfort food at it’s finest.

Thermomix Apple Crumble - you can’t beat the traditional apple filling topped with crispy, buttery crumble, it’s so scrumptious and comforting!

My Thermomix Apple Crumble is the best crumble recipe ever!  You can’t beat the traditional apple filling topped with crisp buttery crumble, it’s so delicious and heartwarming.

When organised, my preference for apples when making crumbles are green Granny Smiths.  They are crisp and sour, which pairs wonderfully with the sugary crumble topping.

For last minute crumbles when there’s no time to plan, I have used whatever apples I can find in the fruit bowl and they usually turn out okay with no complaints from my family.

Apples for apple crumble coated in brown sugar and cinnamon.

To make the crumble topping, the Thermomix does all the hard work in lightning speed.  There is no need to stand there tirelessly rubbing butter and flour together with your fingers and dropping the mixture everywhere. 

Just add the flour, butter and sugar to the TM bowl and mix for 15-25 seconds/speed 5 until the mixture starts to come together.  It will resemble wet sand but be careful not to over mix otherwise you’ll have pastry and will have to make an apple pie instead!

Thermomix Crumble Topping for Apple Crumble

My favourite way to serve crumble is with thick piping hot custard or a dollop of freshly whipped cream or a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream.  There are no rules to say you can’t have all three!

To Make Ahead and Freeze Apple Crumble

Make the crumble, cover and freeze before baking.  Defrost it overnight in the fridge and then bake.

The best apple crumble recipe ever! You can’t beat the traditional apple filling topped with crispy, buttery crumble, it’s so delicious and comforting!



For the Filling

  • 4 apples, Granny Smiths are a good variety for crumble
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Crumble Topping

  • 160 g plain flour
  • 115 g cold unsalted butter
  • 80 g brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats to sprinkle on top, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C fan forced).
  2. For the Apple Filling: peel and core the apples and cut them roughly into 2-3 cm thick pieces. Place them into a shallow dish and toss with cinnamon and sugar until they are fully coated. I used a 23cm x 17cm oval dish.
  3. For the Crumble Topping: Weigh the flour, butter and sugar into the Thermomix bowl and mix for 15-25 sec/speed 5. (It should look a bit like sand but be careful not to over mix or it will become pastry!)
  4. Scatter the crumble mixture evenly over the apples and gently press down with the back of a fork.  Sprinkle the oats on top (if using) and bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Serve hot with custard, a thick dollop of cream or some vanilla ice cream.

    This recipe is amazing! I’ve made it a gazillion times and it’s always a hit with my kids and guests. Best thing is, it’s so easy to make! Thank you!!

    Delish! Crunchy crumble, really yummy. I made pear, apple and strawberry crumble. I didn’t put oats on and I used caster sugar as that’s what I had. Loved the crumble, thanks

    I can’t boil an egg but this worked out for me… well, put it this way – it was more of a pie (loved the comment at the end stating that might happen… ha) – but I reduced the sugar by 10g and in the TM5, 19 seconds was too long and possibly because I did reduce the sugar. Delicious though! I am making two more as I type.

      Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for letting me know regarding the time. I find approximately 20 seconds is enough for me but will adjust the timings in the recipe card.
