Irish Apple Crumble Recipe

Irish Apple Crumble Recipe
If you are looking for an authentic Irish dessert to serve for St. Patrick’s day, you’ll want to make the following Irish Apple Crumble. Bramley apples are popular for cooking in Ireland, and since they aren’t usually available in the United States, Granny Smith are a good substitute. This apple crumble differs from most recipes because it doesn’t have any spices like cinnamon or nutmeg. You can add them, of course, but Ireland’s version of crumble is traditionally plainer. You can really taste the apples, and the buttery topping, which makes it especially good. This is similar to the crumble you get when it’s ordered in a pub. Make sure you serve it warm topped with vanilla ice cream, custard, or sweetened whipped cream.

6 Servings

4 Bramley or Granny Smith apples, cored, pared, and cut into 1/2" chunks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cold butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray an 8" x 8" baking dish (or 9" x 7") with non-stick spray.
  2. Filling: Place the apples in the bottom of the prepared baking dish; toss with the lemon juice and sugar.
  3. Topping: Mix the flour and sugar.
  4. Cut in the butter until the size of small peas; sprinkle evenly over the apples.
  5. Bake 35-45 minutes or until the apples are bubbly and the topping is golden. Serve warm with ice cream, custard, or sweetened whipped cream.
