Apple and Quince Crumble Recipe

quince crumble

We made a delicious apple and quince crumble today, using some of the quince pieces we preserved from last season’s bounty. Perfectly simple and sweet on a cold, rainy afternoon. Here is the recipe…


Fruit base filling

6 red apples – peeled, cored and sliced
1 & 1/2 cups poached quince (see recipe here)
1/3 cup sultanas
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3-4 tablespoons quince jelly (see recipe here)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Crumble top mix

2 cups fresh bread crumbs (we made some using a few leftover scones, chopped up in a food processor)
1/3 cup sugar (we used raw sugar)
40 – 50g butter


  1. Combine all of the fruit base filling ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Place mixture in to a greased baking dish.
  3. Combine all of the crumble top mix in a bowl, rubbing the butter in to the dry ingredients and mixing well.
  4. Place the crumble mixture on top of the fruit. Pack it down, covering the fruit well.
  5. Bake in a preheated 160C oven for about 45 minutes or until top is golden and cracked-looking.

Serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
