Happy First Day of Fall! I’m celebrating with a new pattern release, the Apple Crisp Cowl. (Yep — if you’ve discovered me via the recipe, I should probably disclose now that I’m a crochet blogger.)
My little monkeys and I have a tradition of making apple crisp on the first day of our favorite season, and I thought I’d share my personal recipe with you! It’s super easy, which makes it the perfect kid-friendly recipe to make with your own little monkeys. And since I’m not a food blogger, I’m going to skip the dozen step-by-step photos and just give you the recipe. 🙂
Deliciously Simple Apple Crisp
Servings: 9 | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 45 minutes
- 4 medium or large apples
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 of an 18.25oz butter-flavored cake mix
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (optional)
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/4 cup real butter, melted
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (f). Grease the bottom of an 8×8 or 9×9 pan.
2. Peel, core and slice your apples, and spread them out evenly on the bottom of your pan. Pour the water over the top.
3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry topping ingredients, then add the melted butter and mix again.
4. Grab a spoon and eat a bite or two. No one will know.
5. Crumble the mixture over the top of your apples. Put the pan in on the center rack of the preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Apple crisp is done when the topping has a nice golden brown coloring. Remove from oven and let cool for a bit, then serve with ice cream if desired.
I don’t have apples but I do have lots of pears. I am going to try pear crisp! It should work just fine. Thanks for the recipe and all your lovely patterns. All my grands and greats think I am going to make them some grandma looking thing. When I show up with items made with your patterns they are in love. I’m so glad I spent the $20 for all access. What a bargain! xoxo
Thank you for your Apple Crisp recipe. I love Apple Crisp.
Just made some apple pies, but this looks delicious. Here is another Apple Crisp fan. Thank you
This is in the oven as we speak! Didn’t have any cake mix so used a bit of flour. Taste tested the crumble just in case though and it was still delicious 🙂 Thanks for the recipe and cute cowl!
Aww – what a great first day of Fall tradition. Our apple trees are absolutely loaded this year here on our farm so I might just have to make this delicious sounding crisp! I just bought some yarn to make your Sparkly Buttoned Cowl – can’t wait to start it.
Your apple crisp looks good! I would like to try. Can I use normal cake flour instead of the butter-flavoured cake mix which isn’t available in my part of the world?
I’m not sure it would work the same… but, any flavor of cake mix will work (even just plain white or yellow).
