Is there anything better in the summer than spooning a pile of warm, fruit crumble into a bowl and top with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream? Summer bliss.
Fruit crumbles are one of my favorite desserts to make in the summer (well, any time of year, really). Apple Crumble is how we hang onto summer as we start to make that slide into fall around late August.
This buttery-rich gluten-free apple crumble is a delicious, easy alternative to apple pie. It's just as flavorful, but without the fuss of making gluten-free pie crust (because honestly, sometimes we just can't be bothered!)
Serve with vanilla ice cream or dairy-free ice cream over top for an extra dreamy treat.
This recipe was adapted to gluten-free diets from a recipe which appears in the cookbook Cooking Light - Holiday Cookbook, Buttery Apple Crumble.
For the Filling:
10 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract, divided
1/2 cup orange juice or apple cider
1/4 cup granulated cane sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch
For the Topping:
1 1/4 cups certified gluten-free oats
3/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose baking mix, preferably without added xanthan or guar gum
1/2 cup packed brown cane sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter or coat a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Place apples in a large bowl and add 1 teaspoon of the vanilla extract, juice or cider, granulated sugar, and arrowroot powder or cornstarch. Stir to thoroughly coat apples.
Combine gluten-free all-purpose baking mix, gluten-free oats, brown cane sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl to make crumble mixture.
Add melted butter and remaining teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir to blend mixture.
Spoon apples into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle crumble mixture evenly over apples.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake additional 30 minutes, or until top is golden and bubbling.
Remove crumble from oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or dairy-free ice cream over top.
