You do not need the crust for this recipe- it is easily omitted. It is however delicious and the crumble is the crowning delight. The coconut and rolled oats may nto sound that enticing but it truely bakes together to make the most delicious crumble ever! I will make this again. Read More

I used the recipe for the crumble only and it was delicious! I just cooked 4 red delicious and 4 granny smith apples (peeled) in a saucepan with white sugar cinnimon nutmeg and clove a little butter and a little flour until apples were soft. Spooned it into a baking pan sprinkled the crumble on top followed the rest of the directions and voila! - a very YUMMY recipe. By the way my hubby is Australian and although he's never had crumble like this he did devour it in 24 hours!!! Read More

Thank you. Very good recipe. Added a dash of cloves and nutmeg to apples too. And good grief folks before you review - look up custard powder on the www that's why you have it! There are other ingredients than just what you find in the US in the rest of the world...surprise! Read More

Best Apple Crumble - nomen est omen. It really crumbles but tastes great! The coconut flakes add an extra twist. Read More

Interesting crumble recipe and very very good even without coconut (allergic to it). As other reviewers noted there is too much crummble and also sugar in it could be reduced. Birds custard works well and usually available at speciality shops. Read More

I found that I ended up with waaay too much crust and crumble which was a shame. The end product tasted good but I'd say it's a pretty average crumble. Read More
