Apple-Raisin Crumble

Category
Dessert

This is such a delicious and comforting dessert. Serve it warm with a dollop of vegan whipped cream or your favorite vegan ice cream. It just doesn't get any better than this!

4 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus 2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup (1 cube) non-hydrogenated, nondairy butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375°

Lightly grease an 8 x 8 Baking Dish. In a medium-size bowl, toss together the apples, raisins, granulated sugar, two tablespoons of the flour, and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon to coat the apples thoroughly.

In another medium-sized bowl, combine the remaining 3/4 cup of flour, 1/2 cup quick oats, brown sugar, nutmeg, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, almond extract, and the melted butter. Stir or pulse in a food processor until the mixture is well combined and crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the apples.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 - 50 minutes or until the apples are soft when pierced with a fork. Uncover and continue to cook until the crumble is crisp and golden in color, about ten more minutes.

This is so delicious! I made it for my family and they loved it!

I tried this out today, pretty good but I would change a few things. For an 8x8 pan as the recipe calls for I would reduce the apples from four to two, I used four and had to use a 9x13 pan to fit them in one layer. Using the larger pan meant the crumbles were fairly sparse. As for the choice of apples, I thought the tartness of the granny smiths seemed out of place, I would have used a sweeter apple like a gala. And as much as I like almond extract it is a little strong in the amount used here, I would try cutting it back to maybe 1/2 teaspoon.
