For the Crumble Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 TBS butter
  • 1/2 cup oats

For the Apple Filling:

  • 5 cups chopped apples (cored and peeled too)
  • 2 TBS flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  • Dice up the butter and add it into the mixture. Use two forks or a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Fold in the oats. Set aside in the fridge till needed.

For the Apple Filling:

  • Place the apples in a large bowl and toss them with the flour, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Fold till they are coated well.
  • Pour the apples into a greased 9x9in pan or other pan with a similar size (about 2.5 quarts)
  • Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the apples.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35-45 minutes until the apples are bubbling, and the topping is golden brown and crisp.
  • Allow to cool for a few minutes then serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
