What better way to start the new year than with warm seasonal treats? Cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, cozy winter aromas which create the perfect homey atmosphere.
My Mom is the OG chef. All her recipes are amazing. She used to put me in charge of baking this apple crumble for the holidays, so I became a real pro. The crumb topping has perfect proportions. I love the thick oatmeal crust – when baked just right, it is crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. This recipe comes together quickly, is affordable, and is actually a great way to use up apples on the cusp of turning bad. Serve as a sweet side dish or as a dessert, the apple crumble goes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, which melts over the crispy crust and moist filling.
An all-time favorite recipe which is not to be missed.
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup water
– 1/4 cup flour
– 1 tsp. Nielsen Massey Pure Vanilla Extract
– 1 tsp. cinnamon
– 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
– 1 ½ cup flour
– ½ cup sugar
– 1 stick margarine
– ½ cup brown sugar
Whisk the ingredients for the filling in a saucepan (I personally recommend Kitchenistic) and stir over medium heat. Let boil and thicken. Remove from heat and cool. Spread apples in a pan 9×13 in and pour filling on top. In a bowl, combine ingredients for the crumble. Crumble the ingredients over the filling and bake on 350 C for one hour.
Tip: Do not over bake the apple crumble, ideally the filling should be moist and the crust crunchy.
This is the first dessert recipe on my blog so I’d love to hear your thoughts. Do you love it, would you like me to post more? I secretly have a mega sweet tooth. I am definitely a better cook than I am baker but my mom is amazing at both and I’ll happily steal all her recipes and share with you guys.
