Grams’ Apple Crisp

This recipe is from my step-mum Trude, or Grams, as my kids call her.  It’s brilliant because it’s so easy to make, looks super impressive and is loved by adults and children alike.  I have served this for lazy Sunday roasts, family gatherings and dinner parties. No one has every complained!  

If your family is anything like mine, we all like different toppings so we have a choice of ice cream, cream or custard!  Yum Yum.


6- 8 apples (I use all different varieties), peeled and sliced

½ cup sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt

2 Tbsp flour

¼ tsp nutmeg


1 cup flour

½ cup chopped pecans

2/3 cup sugar

½ cup coconut


Preheat oven to 350° / 170°.

Mix the main ingredients together in a bowl and put into a deep pie dish.  Pour 1/8 cup of water all over the top.

Mix your topping ingredients together and sprinkle over the apple mixture.

Bake in your oven for between 50-60 mins.

Serve with your choice of topping / toppings.

Enjoy as this won’t stick around for long!

Lots of love from

and the Puremess family xxxx
