Green apple

Originally uploaded by Hugo Provoste

My husband found this recipe online last night after realizing we had some green apples laying around that no one was eating. He’s always happy to eat whatever I bake, but rarely does he actually find the recipe and request it, so I was excited to make this for him. Plus, you can do it all in one bowl and it takes about 5 minutes to throw together. I topped mine with a scoop of Dean’s Cupcake ice cream because I can never leave well enough alone.

You will need:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups apples – peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Then you:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8 inch square pan.
In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, flour and butter. Mix until crumbly. Place half of crumb mixture in pan. Spread the apples evenly over crumb mixture. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and top with remaining crumb mixture.*
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

*I actually put the sugar and cinnamon in a large Ziplock, threw the apples in after I chopped them, shook it up and dumped the whole thing into the pan on top of the crumb mixture. Then I just topped it with the other half of the crumbs and baked it.

This recipe was good, but it would have been even better with some homemade caramel.
