It’s Damn Near Fall, Let’s Make An Apple Crumble
It was 47 degrees yesterday in my hood and it snowed on the Peak, so summer has totally peaced out on us here in CO.
To celebrate (and mask my sadness), I made a apple crumble.
I used apples for this crumble, but you can use 4 cups of any fruit or berry you prefer. I used Gwennie’s recipe from My Father’s Daughter, I happen to think her cookbook is pretty legit.
4 cups of diced apples (I think these are golden delicious because it’s what I had)
¼ cup + 1 TB. flour (I used whole grain, you can use white, spelt, whateves)
1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
¼ cup organic dark brown sugar, packed
½ tsp ground cinnamon
4 TB unsalted butter at room temp.
Dice up all your apples, I didn’t peel them because I don’t have time for that. Also, I sprinkled the cinnamon directly onto the apples, I don’t know why. Gwyneth is probably very disappointed in me.
The oven should preheat to 350°. Toss the fruit with the 1 TB of flour in some sort of dish. I used a dish that belonged to my grandmother, mostly to show my sisters that it’s mine. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands until it comes together in crumbles. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the fruit and bake for 40 minutes or until the top has browned and it is kind of bubbly (technical cooking term).
It is best served warm with ice cream, but it is also delicious for breakfast with greek yogurt. Allegedly.
