Faff-Free Cooking with Jackie Johnson – Apple Crumble Bars

My motto has always been ‘never trust a skinny cook!' I do like to share recipes that I know work for me. They are not necessarily of my invention – but I will always give you the origin and maybe the story behind them! These recipes are relatively easy to make – hence the title, Faff-Free Cooking.

So, today’s treat is ….... Apple Crumble Bars


75g butter or margarine
75g light soft brown sugar
175g plain flour
Pinch of salt

3 tablespoons light soft brown sugar
2 large cooking apples, peeled and chopped into neat pieces
25g butter
Pinch of cinnamon


  1. Sift flour and salt and rub in butter or margarine until the mixture is like breadcrumbs.
  2. Stir in the light soft brown sugar.
  3. Spread the mixture in a greased shallow baking tin that measures 18cm square and press down lightly.
  4. For the topping – cover the mixture in the tin with the chopped apple.

  1. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top and dot with butter.

  2. Bake at 200C/Gas 6 for 35 – 40 mins.

  3. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Whilst still warm, cut into 9 squares.
