Apple Crisp

It’s been quite a while since I last posted.  The past several weeks have been quite mentally exhausting.  We’ve been dealing with death, family health problems, and travelling.  Like a fool, I looked up stuff relating to the health problems my family is facing on Wikipedia and sunk into a deeper depression.  Quite honestly, I just haven’t had the energy or motivation to blog lately.

This past weekend, however, was uplifting.  My dear childhood friend, Aiysha, came to visit us with her husband.  We’ve known each other since Junior High and we grew up near each other in California.  Sometimes we talk about how crazy it is that even though we both are from California, we’re hanging out together in the Midwest 🙂

So Aiysha is an amazing photographer and I asked her to bring her fancy camera with her to take pictures of the food.  The photo below is of her amazing technique.  It’s a humble apple crisp (apple crumble anyone?).  I found the recipe here and adapted it based on the reviews.  Let’s just say that this, and my dear friend’s company, was the perfect way to lift my spirits.

Apple Crisp

Yield: 4-6 Servings


For Apple Filling:

  • 3 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

For Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine all of the apple filling ingredients and place at the bottom of a greased casserole dish.

Combine all of the dry ingredients for the crumb topping together.  Add the melted butter and mix well.  Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the apples and bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
