As I have said before my go to desert for visitors is apple crumble. Mostly I do this in the oven but the other day I wanted to try it in my crock pot (slow cooker) to see if it would work.

DSC_1314It was delicious and so easy.


  • 8 apples
  • water
  • sultanas – hand full
  • brown sugar – 1/2 cup
  • mixed berries – 1 cup

for the crumble

  • plain flour – 2 cups
  • brown sugar – 1/2 cup
  • rolled oats – 1 cup
  • shortening – enough to make mixture crumbly

Take the apples and core them and cut them in half and score the skin.  Place them skin side down in your slow cooker.  Mix together raisins and brown sugar and sprinkle over the top, then place the mixed berried on top of this.  Put enough water to come half way up the sides of the apples.


For the crumble: mix together the flour, sugar and rolled oats, add the shortening and mix until crumbly.  Place this on top of the apples and turn your cooker onto high. This will take about 2-3 hours.


Serve with cream or ice cream.

PS:  I’m sorry but I am a sort of chuck it in and mix it type of cook with not a lot of measuring happening.  You really can’t go wrong with this recipe, just add more or less depending on how many people you are serving and how sweet you want it.  Also you can peel the apples if you want.



  1. You cook like I do 🙂 . I have to measure what I’m making when I write a recipe out for someone else. It’s just “this much” ya know?
    This looks wonderful. I bet your family really enjoyed it. They are so blessed to have a baking mama.

    1. Yes, it is hard sometimes when you don’t use recipes if someone wants it. Just chuck this in and that in doesn’t always help. We did really enjoy this apple crumble. Thank you so much for being such an encouragement to me.

  2. Wow, this looks good and easy! I never thought about making a crumble or crisp in the slow cooker. I will definitely be trying this recipe. I wonder if I could add walnuts?

    1. Thanks so much Lisa, I don’t see why you couldn’t add walnuts, it would be a lovely addition. We don’t really eat many nuts but it sounds great. Let me know how you go if you try it. Blessings

  3. I’m loving this! I’m always so impressed by your masterpieces. Pinned and tweeted. We appreciate you taking the time to party with us. I hope to see you on Monday at 7. Happy Mother’s Day! Lou Lou Girls

  4. Apples and berries are a great combination. Using the crockpot is so helpful for freeing up the oven for other things and not leaving extra work for after guests arrive. The rough measurements work for me; I’m that kind of cook too!

  5. Crumbles are my favorite part, and it looks like yours is simple and yummy! Thanks for stopping by and sharing this on Five Friday Finds! I’m looking forward to what you share this week. 🙂
