This Baked Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream recipe is a hallmark of fall. An easy, classic favorite that’s incredibly delicious warm from the oven with a crumbly cinnamon-oat, buttery topping.
This Apple Crumble is a fall dessert you will want to make this season.
Apple Crumble, also known as Apple Crisp, is a staple in my family’s kitchens. My father grew up in an apple orchard in the Yakima Valley of Washington state.
Now, years later, he still maintains a small apple grove. And when the apples are ripe in the fall, the first recipe we make is always Apple Crumble.
Baked Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream
This simple dessert is made with 4 lbs of large baking apples. I like Golden Delicious apples but other varieties like Braeburn, Granny Smith, and Honey Crisp are good choices too.
Taste of Home has a detailed post on which apples are best for baking you might want to check out.
As a general rule of thumb, 1 lb of apples is equal to 2 large apples or 3 medium-size apples.
Combine a simple topping of oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon until it’s nice and clumpy. Then slice the apples, and toss with lemon juice and cinnamon.
Add the apples to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, top with crumble, and bake at 375 degrees for 55 minutes. Or until the apples are soft and the crumble is toasty.
Top, of course, with vanilla ice cream while it’s still warm from the oven. Happy sigh!
