Easy Caramel Apple Crumble for Rosh Hashanah

I love crumble and I love the fact that it is the easiest thing to make in the world. Anyone, no matter how incompetent in the kitchen can make crumble. My husband makes crumble all the time (just saying). If you hate honey cake, apple crumble is a great alternative for Rosh Hashanah and it can be made ahead of time and reheated, making it a very useful potluck dish. The recipe is below.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

6 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

5 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup raisins (optional)

Store bought caramel

Ice cream for serving

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Pre-Heat oven to 350 F.

Butter a 9 inch baking dish.

Make crumble topping in food processor by mixing together the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and 6 tablespoons of butter. The texture will appear powdery but should clump when pressed between fingers.

Prepare a bath of ice water and lemon juice in a large bowl.  As you peel, core and cut apples, drop them into the bath. Apples should be in 1.5 inch chunks.

Drain apples thoroughly and place in baking dish. Distribute raisins evenly amongst apples. Cut 2 tablespoons of butter into pieces and distribute amongst apples and raisins. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons caramel. Top with crumble topping.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Drizzle again with caramel to taste.

Serve hot with ice cream.

 

You can make this dish ahead and reheat.

L’Chaim!
