1. Apple Crumble
A true American classic is made all the better with an easy crumble topping. Nobody will know if you have a couple of extra bites late at night!
The warm, caramelized apple filling is baked in a casserole dish, so there’s plenty to go around.
This crumble is made with brown sugar, flour, butter, and of course cinnamon.
It doesn’t get much better than hot apple crumble in just 45 minutes. It’s simple, sweet, and a perfect partner for vanilla ice cream.
2. Ultimate Berry Crumble
It’s double the crumble, and triple the berry. No wonder this is the ultimate berry crumble!
Half of the crumble mix is placed in the bottom of the baking dish before adding the berry filling.
Sandwich it all together with the remaining crumble and watch the magic happen.
The sweet and tart berry filling is well balanced with a hint of cayenne and apple cider vinegar. This is one impressive crumble if I’ve ever had one.
3. Easy Blueberry Crumble
Making a beautiful blueberry crumble doesn’t have to be a labor of love.
With just ten minutes of work (and a little patience for baking), you can enjoy this simple dessert.
The blueberry filling is made with just five ingredients, and can easily be modified.
It’s slightly sweet, and always delicious. This is one crumble I’m tempted to eat for breakfast!
4. Peach Crumble
It’s just about that time of year when peaches are being plucked from their trees. And with juicy ripe peaches comes sweet peach crumble.
Talk about a simple recipe. It only requires six pantry ingredients, not including your ripe peaches.
If you like a little extra warmth to your peach crumble, add a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon to your peaches.
This will caramelize with the juices and taste heavenly with the piled-on crumble.
5. Strawberry Crumble
A big bowl of strawberries never lasts long in my house. On the off-hand I buy too many, I opt for this sweet and satisfying crumble for dessert.
This crumble topping is particularly crunchy with oats, nuts, and coconut mixed in. It has two simple layers, and all the sweetness you love about strawberries.
6. Buttery Raspberry Crumble Bars
Any time I can make dessert for breakfast, I’m so down. These easy crumble bars are a brunch gamechanger, and are sinfully delish!
To make this crumble work as a bar, you’ll sandwich the filling with crumble on both sides. I like to pack my bottom layer into the pan a bit for a sturdier base.
Layer on a sweet concoction of peaches, raspberries, and jam. These are a great brunch treat or even a late-night snack.
7. Rhubarb Crumble
Whether or not you love the tartness of raw rhubarb, this crumble is divine. The surprising spices make a perfect dessert that is truly irresistible.
Adding cardamom and vanilla to the tangy rhubarb makes a flavor profile that is out of this world.
Serve your rhubarb crumble with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped topping.
8. Blackberry Crumble
This blackberry crumble screams summer. Whether you’re deep in the heat, or are craving a warm winter treat, it’s just what you need.
Toss fresh blackberries with a bit of sugar and flour for a thick and sweet filling.
Top with loads of crumble made with oats and dark brown sugar for a bit of crunch in every bite.
I like to serve this crumble with a large scoop of lemon curd ice cream for a touch of tartness.
9. Apricot Crumble
Baked stone fruits are unfathomably perfect. To no surprise, apricot crumble is one of my favorite summer desserts.
The best apricots will be velvety, juicy, and sweet like peaches. Toss your sliced apricots in cornstarch, sugar, and spices before topping with crumble.
For extra crunch, I like to add some pecans to my crumble topping. Then serve with a maple pecan ice cream for a bombshell crumble.
10. Easy Pear Crumble
Pear desserts are often overlooked for other fruit dishes. This crumble reminds us why ripe pears deserve a plate at the dinner table!
With just six ingredients, this is one of the easiest recipes on this list. Coconut sugar and maple syrup add natural sweetness to the pear filling.
This pear crumble is one that I like to serve with sweet cream, rather than ice cream. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
11. Easy Plum Crumble
Despite their tart and sweet flavor, plums are an underused fruit in desserts. This easy crumble recipe showcases this gorgeous stone fruit so well.
Be sure to pit and slice your plums before making the filling. Add a heaping pile of crumble for crunch in every bite, and you’re ready to bake!
As the plums bake, they take on a deeper color, and the flavors meld well with the warm crumble topping.
12. Cherry Crumble
Fresh cherries are a special treat in my kitchen. So when I buy them, I come home with more cherries than I’ll ever be able to eat! Here comes the cherry crumble.
Pitting the fresh cherries is the most time-consuming part of the recipe. Once they’re ready, make your filling and add an almond crumble topping.
Like cherry pie, this crumble is delicious served warm with simple vanilla ice cream.
For a more adventurous flavor, serve with lemon or almond ice cream instead.
13. Caramel Apple Crumble
Caramel apple desserts may just be from heaven. This crumble may be easy to make, but doesn’t fall short of a heavenly treat!
Start by combining apple slices, spices, sugar, and cornstarch. Then coat your apple filling with caramel sauce, and sprinkle on the crumble topping.
I like to double the crumble, and add a layer on the bottom for the caramel sauce to soak into.
14. Pumpkin Pie Crumble
Pumpkin pie certainly has its place at the holiday dessert table. But for the rest of the year, I make this lovely crumble instead!
This recipe has a buttery oat crumble atop spiced pumpkin filling. The pecans in the crumble add more texture for an easy, any-time sweet treat.
Like its traditional counterpart, this crumble is delicious with whipped topping. Though don’t be fooled, it’s excellent on its own.

Combine your sliced bananas with brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and orange juice. Then pile on crumble with pecans and bake.
This recipe is like banana oatmeal, but even better!
19. Pineapple Crumble with Cinnamon and Coconut
I’m going out on a limb, and saying this should be called “Paradise Crumble.”

You can serve with berries to add a bit of sweetness and color. Or, enjoy it warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Either way, it’s delicious.
22. Chocolate Crumble
Crumbles don’t have to be loaded with fruit to be devilishly delicious! A creamy chocolate pie filling is a great start for a sweet crumble.
Combine cream, cornstarch, and chocolate to make the chocolate filling. Top with a simple butter, sugar, and flour crumble before baking.
23. Sweet Potato Crumble
Bring a delicious twist to sweet potato casserole for the holidays. This crumble is a delicious change from the classic sweet potato and marshmallows.
The sweet potato is turned into a delicious dessert between a layer of cake and crumble. You could add some pecans or walnuts for extra crunch.
