Apple/Cranberry CrumblePosted: October 1, 2009
Not very pretty, but very yummy and not too terrible for you. Really!
- 2 large apples: peeled, cored and diced (I used Macouns)
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup honey/maple syrup (I used a combo)
- 1 cup oats
- 1/3 cup flour
- 2 tsp freshly ground allspice and cloves (or just use cinnamon)
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons soy milk
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (turbinado or sparkling sugar would work even better)
- Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a cast iron skillet or a 9″ pan (round, square, springform, whatever you want, this is a rustic dessert)
- Toss apples with cornstarch, lemon juice, honey/maple syrup, cranberries and cornstarch.
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in melted butter and milk.
- Arrange apple mixture in a single layer in the skillet. Top with the dry(ish) mixture. Sprinkle brown sugar on top.
- Bake for about 45 minutes or so – until the fruit is bubbly and the top is a bit brown.
- Serve with whipped cream if you’ve got it.
I just ate the leftovers for breakfast (hey, oats, apples, cranberries!) and they would be great as a heartier breakfast with some Greek yogurt. It also made a nice and easy dessert. If you want it to be even more delicious, I would up the butter content. I did make this in mind with having it for breakfast though, so I didn’t want it to be too rich. Could have probably cut the sugar too. Still good.
