Apple Crumble

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Cook Time: 30m
  • Total Time: 50m


Apple Filling

  • 1 lb Whole apples (braeburn, golden delicious, gala, granny smith, etc., or a mix)
  • 1/2 tbsp. Flour
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch Allspice
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon juice

Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 c Rolled oats
  • 1/2 c Flour
  • 1/2 c Brown sugar (loosely packed)
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking powder
  • 5 tbsp. Butter, melted
  • 1 pinch Salt (only if using unsalted butter)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and core apples, then cut into 1/2" cubes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix apples with flour, sugar, cinnamon, and allspice with a wooden spoon. Add lemon juice and toss to coat. Set aside to rest.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine all crumble topping ingredients and stir to combine. You should start seeing clumps forming; if not, add more melted butter.
  4. Pour apples into a 1.5 qt baking dish (roughly 6x9") and distribute evenly. Pour the topping mixture over the apples and spread evenly.
  5. Bake 30 minutes uncovered, until the top is a golden brown and the pear mixture is starting to bubble up the sides. Check at 20 mins to see if it is browning evenly and rotate as necessary.
  6. When done, let sit loosely covered for 5 mins. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
