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 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
