Apple Crumble…add sweetness to your winter!

26 Jan

I went to visit a good friend today. We had a very nice time, chatting about life and things we have in common. She cooked lunch for the two of us and it was delicious! For dessert, she made an Apple Crisp — she said she’s been craving one for over a week now! (Me, too!) It was so sweet and juicy, with that little bit of crunch on top. It was the perfect way to end the meal.

This reminded me of a recipe I have for Gluten-free Apple Crumble. In the middle of winter when everything is either white or dirty brown (especially in Maine), it’s hard to remember the other seasons and their bounty of ripe, colorful fruit. I’m grateful to be able to get fresh apples that still taste good at this time of the year!

Here’s to winter wherever you are, add a little apple sweetness to your table.


Apple Crumble (Gluten-free)

Crumb crust/topping:

1½ cups gluten-free rolled oats

2/3 cup brown sugar, packed

½ cup Pamelas’s Gluten-free Baking and Pancake Mix

1 stick butter, softened


4 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

½ cup sugar

3 tablespoons Pamela’s Gluten-free Baking & Pancake Mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 9 inch baking dish. For the crust — in a large bowl combine oats, brown sugar and ½ cup Pamela’s mix; stir to combine. Cut butter into oats mixture and blend well. For the filling — in a large bowl combine fruit, spices, sugar and Pamela’s mix; toss with a spoon to coat well. Pour fruit mixture into the greased dish. Spoon oats mixture on top of fruit and spread evenly. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.

    Hi, Nice to meet you! I guess every fruit is good in a crisp. I love apples and plums the most.

      Hi back – really nice to meet you too! Plums sound wonderful in a crisp – I bet they’d taste great with fresh ginger added in, maybe peaches, too… the possibilities are endless! Thank you for sharing!
