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
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.
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
- Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.
- Add the butter then blend together using two knives to work the butter into the flour mixture until small crumbs form.
- 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.
