Strawberry Apple Crumble

This lovely dessert is my maiden attempt at baking. A big thanks to my sister, who is an amazing baker, for all the motivation to get me baking. A combination of sweet strawberries and sour granny smith apples teamed with flour, oats and sugar gives this soft and crumbly piece of heaven.


  • Strawberry – 2 cups (halved)
  • Apple – 1 (peeled and cut in medium-sized cubes)
  • Sugar – 3 tblspns. For the fruits and ¾ cup for the crumble mix
  • Oats – ¾ cup
  • Butter – 120 gms (cubed)
  • Plain/ all purpose flour – 1 tblspn for the fruits and 1 cup for the crumble mix
  • Salt – ½ tspn
  • Cinnamon powder – 1 tspn


  1. Pre-heat oven at 180ºc for 10 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, mix the cut fruits, 3 tblspns sugar and 1 tblspn flour.
  3. Ensure while mixing, the fruits are properly coated in the sugar and flour mix. Keep aside.
  4. In another bowl, add 1 cup of the flour, ¾ cups sugar, salt, cinnamon powder and oats. Give it a mix.
  5. Add the butter. Make sure the butter is cold as it helps in making the crumble mix better.
