♥ Apple Crisp à la Mode ♥


At the beginning of Fall, the weather is getting chilly while apples and pumpkins are smelling phenomenal. Recalling all my series of pumpkin recipes from last year including pumpkin cream cheese barsdonut muffins, the mini version of traditional pumpkin pie, or even swiss roll, this should be the time for some apple recipes.


This recipe calls for 4 generous serving, and of course who will deny a scoop of vanilla ice cream for their apple crisp / crumble? The only difference between them is the addition of oats. But trust me, you must use rolled oats, not quick cooking, or any others.


For apples, I used gala apples. You can use honeycrisp or granny smith. Top with a scoop of your favourite ice cream and this dessert will wow your guests.

Make 4 servings
You'll need:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla
4 scoops vanilla ice cream, to serve

How to make apple crisp:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease 4 ramekins and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add apples, sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and vanilla. Mix until well coated.
  3. Divide apple fillings among ramekins evenly and set aside.
  4. For topping, combine oats, flour, baking powder, sugars and cinnamon. Add chunks of cold butter. Using a knife, fork, pastry cutter or fingertips, combine butter and flour mixture into coarse crumbs.
  5. Divide topping evenly all over the top of apples and place ramekins on top of baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.
With all my love <3
