Campfire Apple Crumble

There’s nothing quite like gathering around a crackling campfire, sharing stories, and indulging in delicious treats. Today, we’re bringing you a recipe that perfectly blends the warmth of a cozy campfire with the comforting flavors of home – Campfire Apple Crumble.

Cooking Time: 35-40 minutes

Serves: 15


2 TbspLemon Juice
1 TbspArrowroot/Cornstarch
1 CupRolled Oats
1 CupPlain Flour
1 CupBrown Sugar
1/2 tspBaking Powder
1 tspCinnamon
125gButter, softened


Note: Prepare your fire early, so when it comes to cooking your dessert you can pull hot coals from underneath and create and create a little side fire, which will provide the heat to cook your crumble. Essentially a ‘hot plate’. You don’t want open flames, but you’ll need to keep topping up the coals to ensure it stays hot.

  1. Peel and slice you apples and place in your cast iron pot. Feel free to use a mixing bowl here if you’ve got one spare. Mix the lemon juice and arrowroot together and pour over the apples to coat.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the softened butter and using a spoon or your hands, rub it into the dry mixture to create a ‘crumble’
  3. When ready to cook, place the cast iron on the coals (with the apples in it) and put the lid on. Top the lid with more coals. Cook until apples are semi-soft, about 20 minutes. Mix occasionally.
  4. Remove lid to add your crumble. Keep cooking, with the lid on, 10-15 minutes until the crumble is toasty and the sugar is starting to caramelise. Serve and enjoy!
