Harvest Apple Crumble — Eat it Fast, It Won’t Last Long!

All you need is apples...and a couple other items.

All you need is apples…and a couple other items.

The DH brought home a grocery bag full of apples the other day. Apparently some Scouts or so had been selling them at his work. I knew right away what I wanted to make with them: my yummy Harvest Apple Crumble! I had done a test recipe for that when a few friends had come over for dinner a number of weeks prior, but I hadn’t had a chance to document the process, so obviously I had to make another one. For documentation purposes, only. Not that I was craving yummy apple crumble. Uh uh.

Ok, so yes, I was craving it! It was soooo good! The first time I made it, the entire dish (a whole flan sized dish) was gone after dessert, and then this time when I made it, the whole thing was gone within 6 hours. Maybe less. And mostly I ate it. Because it’s just soooo good! And healthy, too, because there’s a whole cup of oats in it, and only 1/4 c. sugar plus a tbsp. molasses in the entire dish.

As with all my recipes, it’s easy, because I don’t like complicated stuff. The base is just apples tossed with a tablespoon of flour, and the crumble topping is my Ultimate Caramel Crumb Apple Pie topping, mixed with a cup of oats. Easy peasy! Want some apple-y deliciousness yourself?

Let’s get peeling!

Harvest Apple Crumble

  • 12 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar mixed with 1 tbsp. molasses
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp. chopped butter
  • 1 c. oats

Peel the apples and slice them. Toss with 1 tbsp. flour. Place in a large flan dish. Mix up the white sugar with the molasses. Dump in everything else and mix until a soft crumb forms. Sprinkle on top of the apples in the dish. Bake in a 350 degree oven until top is golden and apples are soft, about 30 minutes, give or take.

Looking purty, pre-oven.

And there you are! Isn’t that easy? It’s absolutely scrumptious (said with an uppercrust British accent), especially served with ice cream. At my dinner party, we ate it with amaretti gelato, and oh.my.gosh. I devoured it! If you make it, let me know in the comments how you serve it!

Eating it all up because yum!

    Your winning recipe! I tried it with a few variations – pecans in the topping, raisins mixed with the apples, some nutmeg as well as cinnamon etc. Truly delicious! Thanks for providing so much inspiration 🙂
