Description

What’s better than a big pan of apple crumble? This one makes a 9 x 13 pan of classic crunchy topping and a gooey cinnamon and ginger apple filling.


Scale

Ingredients

For the filling

  • 6 medium to large cooking apples
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the crumble

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour (or almond flour for gluten-free)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (or coconut oil for vegan)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Core, peel and thinly slice the apples. Peel the ginger and grate it.
  3. Combine the apple slices and filling ingredients in large bowl and toss with your hands until well coated.
  4. In separate bowl, make the crumble topping: stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, walnuts and kosher salt. Add the vanilla and stir. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to bowl. Use pastry cutter or fork to fully incorporate the butter (or room temperature coconut oil).
  5. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Place the apple filling in the bottom, then evenly distribute the crumble over the top.
  6. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until browned and bubbly. Allow to cool slightly, then serve with Greek yogurt or creme fraiche sweetened with a drizzle of maple syrup, whipped cream (classic, vegan or bourbon infused), or ice cream.
