"A simple and easy to make but oh so yummy recipe. Known as Apple crumble in the UK and Apple Crisp in the US"
Serving Size: 1 (134 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"this was DELICIOUS! we made it with double the amount of apples, and triple the topping, but it was still tasty! we also added a pinch of allspice, which worked out really well. just make sure that when mixing the topping ingredients to fully and completely mix them, or else the topping'll turn out flour-y and not as tasty :D"
"Fabulous crunchy topping!! I doubled the recipe using a 9X13 pan, worked perfectly. I also added approx 1 cup of toasted walnuts to the topping!
This is now going to be our GO TO recipe for fresh fruit crisps. Thank you for sharing!"
"Wow wow wow!!! I also doubled this recipe and put it in a 9x13pan. At first it seemed like too much "crisp" but in the end it was great. I did have to grate some frozen butter on top of the whole dish midway through cooking though because the crumble was dry and the butter did not distribute evenly. I sprinkled some cinnamon on top of the apples before putting the crisp on as well. I thought it was really good warm out of the oven, but it was ten times better cold out of the fridge the next day. Delicious and easy."
"Yummy! I did tweak it a little which is why I gave it a four instead of a five. First I knew we'd need a bigger batch since my family and I are gluttons so I doubled the apple portion so it would fill a 9x13 size pan. I also tossed the apples in a little vanilla and white sugar. We love the apple crisp topping so I tripled that. I added a couple dashes of salt to the topping and ended up adding two sticks of butter. It came out picture perfect. It tasted just like I wanted it too and my family loved it. Vanilla ice cream on top is a must of course ;)"
"Yummy, yummy! What I love most about this recipe is that it's so easy to make for the 2 of us. We halved the crumble recipe, and sliced 2 apples, baking in individual dishes. We served them with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream. We also think it would be good with a little caramel drizzled on top."
"This is the same recipe from Betty Crocker that my friend shared with me recently. I doubled the recipe to fit my 13x9 (unless you have an older jar of nutmeg, you'll definitely want to reduce the amount as it is very strong!). Baked at 350* for 30 minutes. It's so easy to pull together and makes a great dessert served a la mode."
"Sorry, but nutmeg was over powering and all I could taste."
"Delicious with some slight changes. Made with braeburn apples, added a little lemon juice to up the tartness and keep them looking fresh as I sliced them. Also, cut out the nutmeg, upped the cinnamon to 1 TBL, and added chopped walnuts to the topping for more crunch."
"I can't believe I have not reviewed this yet ... I have made it many times. We all absolutely love it ... not a lot of ingredients yet full of flavor. Truly a great apple crisp."
"This was VERY good! I had really small apples (not sure what kind they were), so I used about 8 or so. I doubled the topping, and cooked it in a 9x13 pan. Also, I didn't cut the butter in, I just melted it and mixed it with all of the other topping ingredients, then used my hands to sprinkle the crumble over the top. I also used about half the cinnamon and nutmeg. We had this with vanilla bean ice cream, it was VERY good!! Beats my old recipe for crisp hand down!"
"This was incredibly easy! I used Braeburn apples (they are tart and I prefer them over Grannie Smith). I took the suggestion of making more of the crumble but next time I'll stick to the original recipe. The extra crumble overpowered the delicious baked apples. I also used less nutmeg and more cinnamon as some suggested and the flavor was perfect. THANKS!!!!!!"
"doesnt really need another review does it :) Best crumble ever! I did sub some demera sugar, for some of the brown, and it gives the crumble an even better CRUNCH!"
"The kids and grandchildren loved it. I did add brown sugar, cinnamon and soft butter to the apples before putting them in the pan and then added the toppings. It's good either way, we just prefer our apples with the extras!"
"Fantastic! This was so great. I doubled the topping recipe (sans nutmeg) as others had suggested and put a layer on the bottom, sandwiching the apples. I also used Joy1996's Dutch Apple Pie recipe to coat the apple slices (sans nutmeg). After it baked, I topped it will Kittencal's Caramel Sauce. I'm looking forward to eating the leftovers for breakfast! Thank you!"
"I gave it 4 stars, but made it 5 stars as follows: 6 total apples 1/2 fuji and 1/2 granny smith. Doubled the crumb topping as others had advised and eliminated the nutmeg as our family does not like the taste. Didn't have oats so left those out and it still tasted great. Will make it again soon!! Thanks!"
"Yum. Didn't and wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. Classically Delicious!"
"Excellent as written! Apples were perfectly tender and the top perfectly crispy!"
"I have made this at least four times this week. This is probably the simplest crumble you will find on this website, and the best."
"I omitted the nutmeg b/c I didn't have any, and used 2 granny smith, and 2 macintosh apples...delicious! My go to recipe for fruit crips now for sure! So easy, I won't even need to look at it again!"
"Well don't know what I did wrong with this recipe, I followed the directions to a tee but my apples came out all dry and the topping was just clumps. It had a good flavor but just dry."
