Apple Crumble – A Fall Favourite

One of my favourite dessert dishes is apple crumble, it’s a fall favourite at our home. After many years of making this, I have finally found the proper amount of ingredients that make my mouth water. There is nothing better than heading out to the orchard and filling a basket with apples. Since we eat apples often, we always have some on hand.

Apple Crumble – A Fall Favourite


Apple Filling

4 -5 large apples
2 tbsp lemon juice
2-3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon ( I added extra)
1/2 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).

Cut, peel and slice apples into medium pieces. Add apples to a large bowl with lemon juice and toss to coat, adding flour, cinnamon and brown sugar then toss until well coated.
Place apple filling into a round or square 8-inch cake pan then gently press down.

Crumble Top
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp cold butter

  1. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the butter then blend together using two knives to work the butter into the flour mixture until small crumbs form.
  3. Sprinkle topping over the apple filling and lightly press down, forming a loose crust.

Bake 45 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is lightly browned. Let cool for about 0 minutes. Serve on its own, whipped cream or with a scoop of ice cream, either way, it tastes great.
