Vegan Apple Crumble

This Apple Crumble has a layer of soft, spiced apple cubes, covered with a crumble topping. The crunchy topping contrasts nicely with softness of the apple underneath. A truly comforting dessert for the winter– feel free to top with ice cream or whipped cream!

What You Need for Apple Filling:

4 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into small cubes

1 Tbs. of apple cider

2 Tbs. of water

1 tsp. of cinnamon

¼ tsp. of cardamom

¼ tsp. of ginger powder

Pinch of salt

What You Need for Topping:

1 cup of flour

¾ cup of brown sugar

1 tsp. of cinnamon

¼ tsp. of salt

8 Tbs (1 stick) of vegan butter

1 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Directions for the Filling:

Combine the apples, vinegar, and water in a saucepan and cook on low until apple pieces are tender (watch to make sure the mixture does not burn).

Add the spices and salt and stir to combine.

Directions for the Topping:

Mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.

Cut the butter into pieces and add to the flour mix. Using your hands, work the butter and flour mix together until it feels moist (it will hold together if squeezed).

Mix in the nuts if using.

Preheat oven to 400 F. 

Pour the apples into an 8 x 8 greased pan.

Crumble the topping over the apples in an even manner (you will have topping left over).

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes; the topping will be lightly crisp. 

Serves 4-6 

The credit for this recipe goes to Love and Lemons for the filling, and Hungry Housewife for the crumble topping. Slight adaptations were made to make sure the recipe was vegan.

Hi Kris! Thank you for pointing out this mistake. It is apple cider vinegar!


Do you use apple cider OR apple cider vinegar in the filling? Your ingredients list says “ apple cider,” but your instructions for making the filling reference “vinegar.”
Thank you.
