Apple Recipe: Rum Raisin Apple Crumble

Rum Raisin Apple Crumble
In honour of Killerton House's up coming annual Apple and Cider Festival and National Apple Day, I have challenged myself to put together a collection of apple recipes to ring in the new season.

Now nothing says autumn to me like apple crumble and this one's got a bit a of a kick with a nice spiced rum and some raisins! As with most things, it's all about the ingredients, so if you've got a nice bunch of organic Killerton apples, like did, then you're off to a winner and if you've got a good quality rum, then all the better!  Serve it how you like it with custard, ice cream or whipped cream, but it's got to be done!

Rum Raisin Apple Crumble


1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup rum
4-5 coarsely chopped and peeled cooking apples
2 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp margarine

  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 6.
  2. Soak raisins in rum for about 10 minutes - or in my case as long as it takes you to peel and chop the apples!
  3. Combine flour, sugar and margarine in a bowl and squeeze into crumbly bits with your hands. 
  4. In a large bowl mix the apples, rum, raisins and cinnamon, then place in an oven proof dish. Pour the crumble mixture on top and place in the oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
