This fantastic autumnal dessert is reminiscent of a dump cake and is the best crumble ever!
Tomorrow is the first day of fall here in the Northern Hemisphere and that means I have been ready for everything autumnal for the past month or so :) I made this apple crumble recipe out of season, but I cannot remember when. Then I lost my pictures in the Horrible Harddrive Failure of June 2018. I, of course, was absolutely distraught at having to make this recipe again to get new pictures - NOT! It's such an easy dessert and it reminds me a lot of a dump cake recipe. The end result is a magnificent autumn dessert. My favorite way to eat it is warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top - but that is only because I can't find the cinnamon bun ice cream I used to love for any dessert with cinnamon in it. Honestly, I could see a couple different flavors of ice cream being a great match with it!
What you need:
For the apple filling:
- 3 large apples, sliced or chopped
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, chopped
- 1 pouch oatmeal cookie mix
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- For the apple filling: combine the filling ingredients together in a bowl. Then spread into a greased 8x8-inch baking dish.
- For the oatmeal cookie crumble: In the same bowl (no need to dirty another), mix together crumble ingredients. Sprinkle over filling.
- Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until topping is light golden brown.
- Serve topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
This Slow Cooker Apple Cake is also a dump cake type recipe that is less of a crumble and more of a cake. It's another really fantastic autumnal dessert that I highly recommend, especially if you want a nut-free dessert. If you're interested in a more homemade apple crumble-like recipe, I highly suggest this Apple Crumble Pie from Tumbleweed Contessa.
