The Hungarian Brunette Apple Crumble Recipe (3 of 3).jpg

I didn’t grow-up eating apple crumble. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was an adult the first time I tasted it. But cinnamon is definitely my favourite spice and comfort food is my jam, so the first time I had it, I was hooked. After looking up some recipes, I realized this amazing dessert is actually the easiest, quickest thing to make, and it’s so rewarding.

And even though I LOVE cooking, and don’t mind spending hours in the kitchen, sometimes it’s great to know you can whip-up a delicious dessert in less than 15 minutes. Apple crumble is one of those desserts that makes you feel warm and fussy inside, but is SO quick to make and takes almost no effort. I actually feel like the most rustic it looks, the better it is… Let’s just say apple crumble doesn’t have to be pretty to be delicious.

I’ve been making it a few times already this Fall, and I thought I would finally share the recipe with you guys! So without further ado, here’s how I make mine:

Apple Crumble Ingredients

  • 6 apples

  • 1/2 brown sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (the quick baking kind)

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/8 cup flax seeds

  • 1/3 cup butter

First, pre-heat the oven to 350F. Then, start by making the apple base (picture on the left). You just have to peel and cut the apples in small pieces, and mix them with the lemon juice, cinnamon and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Make sure everything is well mixed and covered and move on to the topping (my favourite part!!).

For the topping, mix the oats, flour, brown sugar, flax seeds and melted butter in a bowl. Once the mixture is even and there are no dry pieces left, layer it as uniformly as possible.

Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how crispy you like it.

You can keep the apple crumble on the counter, covered, for about a day, but I like to serve it fresh out of the oven. And trust me, with that amazing, mouth-watering smell filling-up your house for almost an hour, you’ll want to do the same!!

Bon appétit!
