Expert Tips:

  • Use an air fryer-safe baking dish that fits comfortably in your air fryer basket.
  • For the best results, choose tart cooking apples such as Bramley apples. These apples provide a nice tart contrast to the sweetness of the crumble topping.
  • Cut the apples into even-sized pieces. This will ensure that they cook evenly and prevent some pieces from being overcooked or undercooked.
  • If your crumble topping starts to brown too quickly, cover it with a piece of foil to prevent burning.


  • Instead of using just apples, try mixing in other fruits such as pears, berries, or rhubarb for a delicious mixed fruit crumble.
  • Add chopped nuts such as pecans, almonds, or walnuts to the crumble topping for a crunch and texture.
  • Experiment with different spices in the crumble such as nutmeg, allspice, or ginger for a warming and aromatic twist.
  • Use gluten-free oats and flour for the crumble topping to make it suitable for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease.


Store – leftover crumble can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Reheat – in the microwave until hot.

Freeze – allow the crumble to cool then wrap the baking dish in foil or cling film and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge before reheating and serving.
