Comments: 0


Few desserts say "autumn baking" more than an apple crisp. Good with creme anglaise or ice cream.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 20 Mins
Cooking time: 45 Mins


  • 1 lb 2 oz (500g) Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

For the topping:

  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup rolled (old-fashioned) oats


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Combine the apples, ginger, and lemon juice in a 6 cup square baking dish and toss.

2. To make the topping, combine the flour and butter in a large mixing bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture is combined. Work in the sugar and oats. The mixture should remain lumpy.

3. Crumble the topping over the apples. Press the topping down gently to level it. Bake for 45 minutes, until golden and crisp. Serve hot, warm, or cold.


Apple and Blackberry Crumble: Replace 1 of the apples with 7 oz (200g) blackberries.
