Experimental apple crumble recipe

Can you put Jack Daniel's in an apple crumble?

1y ago

If you saw my unbagging/unboxing/unpacking video you will have seen that I bought a bottle of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire, their cinnamon liqueur. And it's dire. I don't like it at all. Neat or with Coke, it's way too much. So in a bid to not waste it, I wanted to see what I could do with it. And what better way of doing that than in a crumble? Probably?

Watch how I did it here, or scroll to the bottom for the video.

An apple crumble with a Tennessee twist!

Prep time20min
Cook time3h 40min
Total time4h


  • 5 large cooking apples
  • 250ml Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire
  • 330ml Coke

  • Granulated sugar
  • Crumble mix
  • Mixed dried fruit (if you so wish)
  • Ice cream (or other creamy accompaniment)


Prep Part 1

  1. Peel and slice the apples.
  2. Whack them into the slow cooker and mix in with some sugar, nutmeg and the JD and Coke.
  3. Add in dried fruit as well.

Cooking Part 1

  1. Cook away on high for 6 hours until you have a soft blend of stewed apples. Enjoy the smell.
