Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble Free Spirited Sisters

I think everyone knows of this good old, tried and true recipe. Either you’ve had it or made it or heard of it somewhere along the line. I love love love Apple Crumble and it is a massive favourite of my husband’s too. He has memories of his Grandma making it for him and I actually asked her for her recipe about 10 years ago so I could surprise him with it! This recipe is slightly different and gives us all the comforting feels, usually served with a nice dollop of custard or vanilla ice-cream.
