Gluten-free apple and ginger crumble

60 minutes


Apple and ginger filling

  • 6 Bramley apples, peeled and sliced
  • preserved stem ginger, 3 balls, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • light brown sugar, soft, a sprinkling

Gluten-free crumble

  • 100g of light brown sugar, soft (or use caster if you prefer)
  • 100g of rice flour
  • 50g of porridge oats, gluten-free
  • 50g of almonds, toasted
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 100g of unsalted butter, cold and diced


Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
Toss together the apple slices, stem ginger, ground ginger and sugar and pop it all in a heatproof dish
To make the crumble topping, simply chuck all the dry ingredients into a food processor and pulse to chop the nuts and oats up a bit. If you prefer a more rustic finish, skip this stage
Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until your mixture resembles breadcrumbs. You can add the butter to the processor and pulse to achieve the same results if you’re feeling lazy
Scatter the crumble topping over the fruit and bake for 35 – 40 minutes
