Homemade Apple Crumble Recipe

Hi Y’all,

I hope you are enjoying the fall although it hasn’t been very chilly here in NC yet.  Our fall festivities started last weekend when we took a trip to Sky Top Orchard in Flat Rock, NC.  I have wanted to go apple picking for awhile now and finally made it to this beautiful orchard.  It was a gorgeous day and we had a blast.  My son couldn’t fill our bucket fast enough and since you can’t help but come home with a ten pound bag of apples I have titled this post as part one of apple recipes.

For The Love of Apples ~ Part 1

I’ve started with an apple crumble recipe from www.lizandjewels.com that I found through the awesome Decor8 blog! I love both of these sites and their photography is amazing so you should definitely check them out! You can see the original recipe on Decor8 but below is what I did which I only slightly tweaked from the original.

10 apples, peeled and cut into chunks. I didn’t have an apple core tool so I just sliced them up and cubed them.
1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a baking pan (I used crisco) and fill it with half of the cut apples. Sprinkle half of the 1/2 cup (or 1/4 cup) of the brown sugar on the apples, then fill the pan with the rest of the cut apples and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar over them. For the topping combine the butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl and mix with your hands until it is crumbly. Pour over the apples and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the top is brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. It is that easy!


The reason I love this recipe is because it tastes just like an apple pie but it is a lot less complicated and I imagine lower in carbs because there is no true crust.  Visit us again to see how I use the rest of the apples we picked or you can subscribe and have our posts delivered directly to your email.

Enjoy and leave me a comment if you try it out or if you have a great apple recipe to share!  I may just use if for part two of the series :)
