Easy Apple Crumble

3 years ago

We had a couple over for dinner the other night and I wanted to make something for dessert that I hadn't made for a long time. Something that would be perfect for a cold February evening. Thumbing through my recipe binder I found one of my old faves, an Apple Crumble. It's the perfect combination with two kinds of apples that help to keep it from being too tart or too sweet. And, when you top it off with a little vanilla ice cream it's even better!

Recipe - Apple Crumble


2 cups sliced peeled Granny Smith apple

2 cups sliced peeled Rome apple

1 T lemon juice

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 cup milk

1 T molasses (or maple syrup)

1 tsp vanilla

2 ounces day old bread (whatever you have) torn into small bite size pieces

cooking spray

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces



Preheat oven to 350. Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl. Sprinkle apple mixture with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; toss well. In a separate bowl combine milk, molasses, and vanilla. Add bread to milk mixture; toss to combine. Add bread mixture to apple mixture; toss to combine. Spoon bread mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. In another bowl combine flour and brown sugar. Then cut in the chilled butter until the mixture looks like small pebbles. Finally sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the apple mixture. Bake for 40 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream. :)

*KISS - A warm dessert in the winter is a wonderful way to stay warm.
