This amazing apple crumble recipe is impressive and delicious but incredibly easy to prepare—no crust making here—so be ready to take a bow for a dessert you didn't toil over all day.
With apples available year-round, there's just no reason to wait for apple season to make it, although it's a fantastic project after a day of apple picking with the kids in the fall. Consider this treat for a holiday dessert, or the next potluck.
"This is a great tasty recipe which requires just a few ingredients. Apple crumble is easy to make, it’s not overly sweet and you can serve it either warm or cold. Cinnamon brings great additional flavor to the crumble and you can also add nutmeg if desire. Highly recommend serving warm crumble with vanilla ice cream." —Tara Omidvar
Gather the ingredients.
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch-square baking pan or a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish with butter. Set aside.
Peel and core the apples. Then cut into thin wedges. Place the sliced apples in the prepared baking pan.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in 1/2-cup butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the apples.
Bake until the apples are tender, 35 to 45 minutes. The time might vary a bit depending on the thickness of the apple slices and the depth of the apples in the baking dish.
Serve the apple crumble warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired. It is also great with a drizzle of heavy cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
Crumbles are homey desserts that can be made year-round with seasonal fruits. Just vary the spices and nuts, if you choose to use them, to match the fruit.
- Toss the apple slices with 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice for extra tartness.
- Replace part or all of the sliced apples with sliced fresh pears.
- Feel free to use all or part brown sugar in the topping.
- Replace the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend.
- Add about 1/2 cup of chopped (plain or toasted) pecans or walnuts to the topping.
