Step by Step

  • Preheat oven into 350°F (= 177°C) and butter a 9-inch baking dish.
  • If you have already prepared your apples, transfer them into the baking dish. Be sure that you fill ¾ of the dish so if you need more, feel free to add apples.
  • Make the crumble topping by whisking the flour, brown & granulated sugars and cinnamon together into a bowl.
  • Pour the crumble topping over the apples and make sure that they are completely covered. Lightly press down the topping to pack it over the apple chunks.
  • Bake the apple crumble for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the top attains a golden brown tan, the juices are bubbly and the apples are cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven, let it cool a bit and serve with sauce, cream or ice cream.

Recipe Notes

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. Reduce the water accordingly.
  • Replace part or all of the sliced apples with sliced fresh pears.
  • Feel free to use all or part brown sugar in the topping. The pictured crumble was made with 2/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of granulated sugar.
  • 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.
