How to make apple crumble

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C). Next, generously grease a 2-quart (2 liters) baking dish with butter.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and optionally, walnuts. Gradually blend in the butter until a crumbly texture forms.

Take your apples and slice them into 1/4 inch (6mm) slices. Place them into a large bowl and gently toss them with sugar, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon.

Spread this apple mixture evenly into your prepared baking dish. Now, generously sprinkle the crumble mixture over the apples.

Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the apples become bubbly and the topping boasts a golden brown hue.

To serve, scoop out generous portions while it’s warm and pair it with your choice of accompaniment – be it creamy vanilla ice cream or a dollop of honey-kissed yogurt.
