A lot of people usually confuse a crumble with a crisp. This isn’t surprising since they share more similarities than differences. For those who don’t know, a crumble is a dessert made with baked, chopped apples with a topping of brown sugar and rolled oats. In places like Australia, New Zealand, and even the United Kingdom, the terms crisp and crumble are used interchangeably. Some areas in the U.S. also do this. However, for other areas in the U.S. and Canada, the two are totally different dishes. From its name, crisps and crumbles’ toppings are both crispy and crumbly. The only difference is that sometimes the texture is a bit different for the latter. Some versions use chopped nuts and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. A crumbles’ topping is also denser, and doesn’t contain oats (which the former does).

Commonly Asked Questions

Why is my crumble topping dry?

A dry crumble topping may not have enough butter in its topping. Butter is, after all, one of the most important ingredients when making a crumble. If you followed the recipe but it still came out dry, adding a tablespoon of melted butter may just do the trick.

How long does crumble last?

Your crispy banana apple crumble can stay good for 2 days at room temperature. However, it can last longer when refrigerated, and even longer when freezed. It’s good for up to 5 days when properly stored in the fridge. Covering it with a plastic wrap should be enough to keep it from spoiling. Meanwhile, storing it in the freezer in an airtight container can make it last for up to 3 to 4 months.

How to know when a crumble is done baking?

Your crispy banana apple crumble should be done cooking in 40 to 45 minutes tops, when the crust is already golden brown and the fruit is bubbling.
