Mama’s Best Apple Crumble

Mama's Best Apple Crumble

I don’t know if I agree with the fact that apple crumble is categorized as a “fall dessert”.  In my opinion, it is an anytime dessert.  Well, I’m biased because, to me, most desserts are anytime desserts.  Today I wanted to share our Mama’s Best Apple Crumble recipe.  I got a similar recipe about 5 years ago from a neighbor. I started experimenting with different kinds of apples. My favorite version came about after only having 3 green apples (granny smith), and 3 Honeycrisp apples. The combo of the tart and sweet was out of this world.  Whenever I make this recipe, I always use three of each. Mama’s Best Apple Crumble is one of my go-to desserts.  Pair it with vanilla ice cream, and you will you’ll have a happy household!


Apple Crumble- amazing!

Mama’s Best Apple Crumble


  • Apple Base
  • 3 Granny Smith Apples (green)
  • 3 Gala Apples (Honeycrisp if you want to splurge)
  • 2 heaping T. flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • Crumble
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. oats
  • ½ t. baking powder
  • ½ t. baking soda
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 cube butter, softened


  1. Dice all apples into about one inch cubes. (I cut apples in slices, and then cut the slices in thirds.) Place all the ingredients for the Apple Base in a large bowl, and toss together. Pour the base into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
  2. Combine the Crumble in a bowl. Mixture should be crumbly. Top the Apple Base evenly with the crumble mixture. Bake at 400° for 25-30 or until top is lightly toasted. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
