SRC Orphan Rescue: Apple & Cinnamon Crumble

Fantastical Sharing to the rescue! There was an orphan for today's Group B reveal for the Secret Recipe Club and I am sharing a recipe from the orphaned blog, so they aren't left out :) What is the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group of food bloggers who are split into four groups. Each month, we are assigned a blog from our group secretly and we pick a recipe to make. We photograph it and write up a blog post and all of the group posts on one designated Monday in the month. For more on SRC, be sure to visit the site.

Group B's orphan was Corina of Searching for Spice. Corina is a mom who likes to experiment in the kitchen, but doesn't like to spend ALL her time consumed in the kitchen making food. I totally get that. I love making new foods too, but I also don't like being tied down in my kitchen all day long. I like to make something, enjoy it, and hope that the cleaning fairy comes by, so my mess disappears ;) Don't we all do that?! Corina's blog is a way for her to document her favorite recipes that she's made and she loves to use and discover new spices (hence the blog name!).

Corina has a bunch of great looking recipes on her blog, but I was craving something sweet to go with my lunch and needed to make something that used ingredients I had on hand. I decided upon the Apple & Cinnamon Crumble. I had some green apples in my fridge and for some odd reason, I have a surplus of cinnamon in my pantry, so it seemed like destiny here.

I adjusted the measurements ever-so-slightly because I only had 2 apples instead of 3 and Corina noted that sour apples may call for a teeny bit more sugar. I used brown sugar because I felt like having more of the richness of the brown sugar and I added a pinch of nutmeg on top, just because. A little extra spice is nice!

These crumbles were cute, tart, and ahhh, exactly what I needed! So glad I had the opportunity to make something from Corina's blog!

What you need:
  • 2 apples [I used Granny Smith apples]
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • Nutmeg
  1. Peel and core apples. Place with cinnamon in a saucepan. Add a few tablespoons of water and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together flour and sugar. Cut cold butter into mixture with a pastry cutter, fork, or knife.
  3. Divide apples into two ramekins sitting on a baking sheet. Top with butter mixture. Add a dash of nutmeg on each.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
  5. Serve warm with a scoop vanilla ice cream.
