On Sunday, my family and I went apple picking at Sentenac Ranch. We walked away with 98 apples, and we now need to get creative with this newfound apple abundance. In the spirit of autumn, my sister and I have come up with several baking recipes to share on Dressed in Black – the first being a delicious apple crumble that can be served á la mode or even enjoyed on its own.
You will need:
Baking apples, 3 to 4 small ones
⅓ cup flour
⅓ cup rolled oats
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon
- Dice your baking apples into bite-sized pieces. Place them into a greased baking tin.
- In a separate container, combine the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon with butter.
- Cover your apples with the combined oat mixture and spread out evenly.
- Place the crisp into an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until golden brown.
This simple recipe is super adaptable. The measurements listed above are for a 3-serving apple crisp, and should really only be used as a reference. Add more cinnamon or extra sugar if you’d like! I think the key is to have equal parts oats and flour.
Apple crumble, or more popularly know in the States as apple crisp, is the essence of autumn. I recommend you eat it straight out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Today is the first day of autumn, which I’m really excited about it. I am in my absolute element during these months of September, October and November. The overall coziness from the crisp air to baking is everything.
San Diego won’t have fall weather anytime soon, but you can bet that I will be enjoying this crumble every day until then.
