Apple Crumble

Happy Friday! I know in my last post (link here), I said I would get back to several dishes in one post but once again, this has been a pretty busy week.

The only recipe I made this week was this delicious apple crumble. I went apple picking last weekend and I’ve been mostly eating the apples as a snack but I wanted to do a little baking too.

I used the recipe from RecipeTin Eats (link here) and it was amazing. I made this for Canadian Thanksgiving and it was such a hit!

So the recipe calls for 2lb of apples but I decided to use 3lb (just because I had so many) but kept all the other measurements the same. The filling is just the apples, peeled and cut, combined with white sugar, flour, lemon juice (or water) and cinnamon. You’re supposed to use a 1.5L pan but I wasn’t exactly sure what that was, so I used 2-8″ round pans instead. The crisps turned out “shorter” but the ratio of apple to crumble was higher which I prefer.

And the topping is a mixture of oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and butter. The recipe says to use melted butter but I prefer to use softened butter because I like the little bits that remain after mixing. I’ve never added baking powder to a crumble topping before and I’m not sure what it adds – maybe makes it lighter? Also, since my apples were on the sweet side, I decided to cut the brown sugar from 1 cup to 2/3 cup. I probably could even cut it down to 1/2 cup next time.

These baked up beautifully, making the house smell incredible and like I said, everyone loved it. This is such a great dessert and you don’t have to worry about making any pie dough or crusts.
