2/3 cups of all-purpose flour
1/3 cups of rolled oats
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 cup of butter, which is roughly 1 stick
4 large apples of your choice, I recommend Granny Smith
2 tablespoons of firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease 2-quart baking dish
2 For the topping, place the flour, rolled oats, granulated sugar and butter in a large baking bowl. Mix well.
3 For the filling, peel, core and slice the apples. Layer the apple slices in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon over the apple slices. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the top.
4Bake until the apples have softened and the crumble is lightly golden, approximate cook time is around 20-25 minutes. For the best tasting experience serve warm.
To get the best flavor and texture from this recipe, use a baking apple variety with more acidity. Granny Smith, Empire and Jonathan are good choices, because they are tart and firm.
You can replace the apples with fresh berries, but make sure to sprinkle 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour over the berries before covering with the crumble. The flour binds the liquid given off by the berries so the crumble doesn't become soggy.
