Old-Fashioned Apple Crumble with Oat Topping Recipe:

Homemade apple crumble is a humble dessert made with simple ingredients – oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, butter and apples. All of the ingredients used in this fruit crumble were traditionally found in Grandma’s pantry, and they are in ours as well which makes it an easy recipe to whip up for last minute guests.

One bite or even one whiff of this cinnamony, buttery, sugary dessert transports you back to the olden days.  It gives me a nostalgic feeling of those carefree days of my childhood just sitting in Grandma’s kitchen catching up and playing cards. Sigh…weren’t those the good old days?

Notes About Old-Fashioned Apple Crumble with Oat Topping:

  • Many people ask what the best type of apple is to be used for apple crumble.  You’ll get a lot of different answers. We like to think about how Grandma would answer this, and she would say to use whatever apple you have on hand.  During the fall, you can get apples really cheap, so feel free to use whatever is cheapest.  It all tastes good blended with cinnamon, brown sugar and butter.
  • We use old CorningWare baking dishes. This recipe fits in a 1 1/2 or 2 quart CorningWare or a 9 x 9 inch baking dish.
  • Another question that we get often is whether you should peel your apples first.  If you are in a hurry, then you could leave the peels on; however, this does change the texture of the crumble.  If you have time, go ahead and peel them.
  • You can easily convert this apple crumble recipe with oats to use other fruit. Old-fashioned recipes are really versatile like that.  Try it with peaches!
  • The oats and the flour in this recipe will help keep the filling from getting runny.  The crumble topping sinks down to the apples and it all becomes one delicious concoction.  Try eating it hot served with vanilla ice cream!
  • We love this easy recipe so much that we made it an entree by adding pork chops.  Try Crock Pot Apple Crisp Pork Chops.
