Busy, busy, busy! Too busy to have time for baking? Yes =(
Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been super busy with class, experiments and my BMC applications. But finally on Friday night I squeezed some time out for baking for some de-stressing. Apple crumble is definitely an excellent comfort/ de-stressing dessert to eat. It’s easy to make, probably the hardest part is peeling and dicing those apples (thanks boyfriend! ;). It is also delicious when warm and served with ice cream, especially strawberry cheesecake ice cream!
Apple Crisp (Adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything)
7-8 small Macintosh apples
3/4 cup of white sugar
1 tablespoon of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
2 cups of quick-cooking oats
1 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the sliced apples in a 9×13 inch pan. Mix the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, nutmeg, and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples.
- Combine the oats, 2 cups flour, brown sugar, pecans, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture. (you can also place raisins or banana slices on top of apple-cinnamon sugar before adding the crumble ~ its soooo yum! the banana adds a nice sweetness and it doensn’t over power the cinnamon flavour)
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes
- Serve with your favourite ice cream! (vanilla, strawberry cheesecake, etc.)
