Spiced Whiskey Apple Crumble

We are feeling all the winter feels right now, which means it is the perfect time of year to huddle around the camp fire and cook up some comfort food. This one is a real crowd pleaser and our motto is pretty much 'we cater for everyone and we put booze in everything'. So we made this recipe Gluten Free, Vegan and refined sugar free. We are food lovers and we really believe that if the ingredients are top notch you can make tasty food that doesn't leave any of your mates out.

Spiced Whiskey Apple Crumble


  • one dollop of coconut oil

  • 8 apples (we went with Pink Lady but it is up to you), also we went with about one apple per person so you can make this as big or small as you like)

  • half a cup coconut sugar (or sweeter of choice)

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • one pinch nutmeg (optional)

  • a big squeeze of lemon

  • 1 slug of Whisky (we use fireball as it is cinnamon infused and adds a great flavour)

For the crumble

  • 1 cup plain GF flour

  • 3/4 cup vegan butter (we use nuttalex)

  • 3\4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 pinch sea salt

  • 1 cup GF fruit muesli


1. Cut your apples into medium slices, pull some coal out of the fire and pop your cam oven on top. not too many coals you just want to simmer these apples. Add your coconut oil and apples, squeeze the lemon over and let them start to simmer

2. Sprinkle over your coconut sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg

3. While that is simmering down prepare your crumble add your flour, salt, sugar and cinnamon to a vessel and rub through the butter into a fine crumble (adding more butter or flour as needed depending on how many hungry campers you are feeding

4. Add in your muesli and set aside

5. Once your apples have cooked down stirring occasionally they should start to look a little transparent but not soggy, you want them a little al dente. Pour over a nice slug of fireball, this will evaporate on the heat pretty quickly. Then remove the camp oven from the heat entirely and sprinkle your crumble on top, add the lid and put some coals on top. You don't want heat under it now as you are just toasting the crumble and there will be enough residual heat to keep cooking the apples gently, you don't want a black bottom. Let it cook for around half a glass of vino (about 15-20mins depending on how hot the fire is)

Camp fire cooking is an art and fires can be a little unforgiving but this simple recipe is a perfect place to start. We think everything tastes better cooked on a fire so get out there and give it a go!
