Skillet Apple Crumble: 3ten.ca

Sunday dessert – what’s better than skillet apple crumble? Last weekend I made lamb roast and salad – we hung out and ate with the football game on. We were too full for dessert right away. We live in the country so when it gets dark and quite it’s the perfect time to watch a movie…Lincoln was the pick – and boy, was it ever good. Such an all star cast. What made it better? Skillet apple crumble!

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of allspice and nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of oats and pecans
  • 10-12 apples
  • 1 lemon

First – make sure you have a good verity of apples – the crumble will taste better. Peel them and slice thinly. Use the lemon and squirt all over the apples to prevent them from turning brown while you make the topping and the carmel.

To make the crumble topping – mix in the flour, 1 cup of sugar, the cinnamon, 1/2 the salt, the allspice, the nutmeg, the oats, and the pecans. Mix together well. Then, using a pastry cutter, or a fork in a very large bowl, cut in 1 cup of the butter. The topping should look crumbly.

In a cast iron skillet, melt the remaining butter (1/2 cup) and the remaining sugar (1 cup). On medium for about 7 minutes you’ll start to have a carmel…it’s so yummy!! Add in all of your apples – or all that will fit. Stir around gently and try and coat all the apples in the carmel. After about 4 minutes of stirring, remove from the heat and put the crumble topping on top. Pile it on!

Bake right in the cast iron skillet at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Longer if you want the top really crispy.
