Apple Crumble is The Perfect Fall Dessert

by Alli

Apple Crumble has a layer of spiced apples covered with a delicious crumble topping. 

What’s your favorite thing about fall? Pumpkins? Football? Colorful leaves?

For me, I’m all about those apples, including Apple Crumble and visiting my favorite apple picking farm, but that’s a whole different story for later. Apple Crumble is an easy dessert that’s best served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Serving of Apple Crumble

 

When it comes to apple desserts, I like them all. Give me an apple crisp, crumble, pie, cobbler, apple dumpling, baked apples, apple doughnuts, etc. and I’m a happy girl. What about apple pancakes? I’m all in! As you can tell, I love apples!

This apple crumble is perfect when you want to whip up an easy apple dessert without a whole lot of effort. Well, you do have to peel and slice the apples, but you know what I mean.

Whenever I bake an apple crumble or pie, I always use Granny Smith or Honey Crisp. These apples are firm and won’t get all mushy when baking. You don’t want your apples to be mushy.

Difference Between Apple Crumble and Apple Crisp

What’s the difference in an apple crumble and an apple crisp? It’s according to who you ask.

Taste of Home says, “A crumble is a dish of baked fresh fruit, with a streusel crumb topping. The topping is usually made with a dreamy combination of butter, flour, and sugar, with the option to include nuts. Like a crumble, a crisp is a baked fresh fruit dessert, but the streusel topping is less dense and typically includes oats.” I totally agree!

How To Make Apple Crumble

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add apples. Sprinkle with water and lemon juice. Toss until apples are evenly coated. Spoon into a lightly greased pie pan.
