  • 12 to 15 apples cored, peeled, and sliced
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter melted


  • Pre-heat the oven to 425° F.
  • Core, peel, and slice the washed apples, and add them to a greased 9x13 baking dish.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Using a pastry blender, mix the dry ingredients with the unbeaten eggs and melted butter, forming a kind of crumble topping.
  • Crumble the topping right over the apples.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 425° F for about 20 minutes; the crust should be a nice golden brown. Then cover with aluminum foil, and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, 'til the apples are tender.
  • Once you've removed it from the oven, allow it to cool for about 15 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a swirl of whipped cream.


*You can also make this with gluten-free flour.
How should I store it?
We usually let apple crumble sit out on the counter for 2-3 days just fine. Any longer, and you may want to throw it in the refrigerator. You can also freeze this dessert, baked or unbaked. Just be sure to store it in an airtight container or baking dish, so it doesn't get freezer burn.
