This spiced apple crunch is a fragrant, mouthwatering dessert, perfect for a brisk fall day. The fresh tart apples can be left unpeeled if you prefer. The apples are topped with a crumbly dough and some ground cinnamon.
The apple crunch can be served warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. Or drizzle some heavy cream over the warm crunch dessert. Caramel or butterscotch sauce would be fabulous as well.
1/3 cup melted butter, plus more for baking dish
6 to 8 tart apples, such as Granny Smith
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 to 1 cup sugar, depending on tartness of apples
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter an 8-inch-square baking dish.
Peel apples, if desired. Core and cut into wedges. Slice wedges thinly.
Arrange apple slices in prepared baking dish.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and egg in a bowl and blend well.
Sprinkle mixture over apples.
Drizzle melted butter evenly over crumb mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
- Replace the apples with 2 cans of apple pie filling.
- Serve with a quick and easy caramel sauce. In a saucepan combine 1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar with 4 tablespoons of flour; blend well. Add 1 cup of boiling water and a dash of salt. Cook the mixture over medium heat for about 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, and about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, or to taste.
