Delish Bites: Apple Crumble (Recipe)

Sharing a recipe that has been demanded by at least four friends, so far.
So, this is a modified version of the regular Apple Crumble/Apple Crisp recipe. A friend of Dad sends in mangoes from his Mango gardens in Sindh, every year. So we had plenty of them which I decided to put to use.
You can replace the mangoes with apples or peaches.


5 – 7



  1. Apples – 2 medium sized, thinly cut or mashed with a fork, enough to cover the base of a half 6.5″ x 10″ pan
  2. Mangoes (feel free to use apples or peaches, instead) – 1 large or two small sized,  thinly cut or mashed with a fork, enough to cover the remaining half of the pan
  3. All purpose flour – 2.5 cups
  4. Butter – Softened, about 3/4 of a cup (Merely softened and not melted)
  5. Granulated white sugar – 1 cup (Adjust to taste. You can increase it to 1.5 – 2 cups)
  6. Cinnamon powder – 1 teaspoon
  7. Salt – Half teaspoon
  8. Vanilla essence – a few drops (optional)
  9. Green cardamom powder – a pinch (optional)
  10. Vanilla ice-cream (for serving it with at the end!)



  1. Preheat the oven to 170° C.
  2. Cover the pan-base with the mashed fruit(s).
  3. Take a separate container and mix all the ingredients except for the butter (and vanilla ice-cream).
  4. Now knife-cut the butter into small chunks and roll it over with the mixture in step 3, such that it turns into a crumbly mix. Make sure you don’t smooth it out.
  5. Cover the the fruit layer evenly throughout the pan with the crumbly mix.
  6. Bake for about 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and voila!
  7. Serve warm/hot with vanilla ice-cream. (Crucial. Important. Probably the most essential step!!).
    Alternatively you can serve it with whipped cream, but I’ve never tried that and probably never will – not my thing.


Bon Appétit! 

Please do share how you like it, if you try it out!

      1. Vanilla should be fine on its own but it can never match the spunk and style of cinnamon.
        Nobody ever said; that’s a “plain cinnamon stuff” 😁
