Not only is this incredible easy but it easy to substitute the flour and butter for gluten-free and dairy-free versions too. It tastes absolutely superb! I used double the amount of the crumble mixture though.

I thought this was a delcious recipe I just added less flour and more oats to the crumble and it was delicious. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone.

Couldn't be easier and nice blend of spices. I followed the directions and was happy with the results. Never knew this fall classic could be this easy. Great desert when you're in a hurry. I did add some sliced plums from our tree and topped with whipped cream. Yum will be using often

So easy! Made for unexpected company at lunch. Used low fat spread,as suggested by BonnieD. Used swiss muesli as had no oats, but came out crispy just the same. Thanks again for the recipe.

EZ is right! I doubled the recipe since I had 6 apples to use up. Next time I'll try to lessen the amount of butter and substitute a low-fat spread. Thank you so much for the recipe!

I chose this recipe for my mom because it called for few ingredients and was "EZ". Mom wanted to omit microwaving the apples but I insisted she follow the recipe. Precooking apples before baking is new for me but I like to try new and better methods. It worked! This crumble was tender but not mushy and the top crispy. I will be making this recipe myself for the upcoming holidays. Thanks so much for this keeper!

This was a great recipe! I used cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg instead of the cloves or allspice, and I did double the crumble topping mixture as I felt the quantities were not enough to cover the apples. The end result was great. Thanks for sharing a fantastic home style recipe!

Incredibly easy and TOTALLY delicious! I have always thought that if the word dessert is use, chocolate is a given. This will rival ANY chocolate dessert EVER! I must admit that I cheated on the apple filling, I used a can of lite apple pie filling, and stirred 3 tablespoons of sugar free caramel ice cream topping into it before microwaving for 5 minutes. I made the crumble exactly as directed, and broiled on low for about 7 minutes (I think it was too thick in the pan I used).I also took your suggestion of making warm custard to top it with, and used 1/2 the recipe of Vanilla-Chocolate-and Butterscotch Pudding Mixes, the vanilla pudding version. I have never topped an apple pie, crumble, crisp, or anything with a warm topping, but always with ice cream or whipped topping. I will make this exact combination from now on. This will go in my permanent file, and I will make it often for my family...even for company! Thanks so much!
