Christmas Crumble

Just a little treat after a busy afternoon of Christmas shopping and decorating.

My friend Toni Anne brought a delicious apple crumble for dessert last weekend. It was so wonderful that I decided that I should make some more, just for me.

Oh come on, don't tell me that you never make a dessert just for you.

Because you do, right?

Anyway, here's the recipe, as best as I can remember.

Apple Crumble

4 Fuji apples, cored and sliced
1/4 cup apple cider
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 325. In a lightly buttered baking dish, mix apples and cider. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in the butter with two knives until it resembles pea sized crumbs. Pour over apple mixture. Bake at 325 for 45-55 minutes or until apples are tender.

This makes enough for four good sized servings. Or one serving, and breakfast for the rest of the week.

Because you do that too, right?

Just a note: when I have it for breakfast, I omit the ice cream. I swear.


  1. This looks very yummy!

    I have fuji apples in my refrigerator right now and company coming this weekend. Sounds like a winning combination.

  11. Yum. Love the Christmas plate, too!
    But can't eat that.

    (And I totally believe you leave off the ice cream at breakfast. Totally.)

  12. That looks so yummy that now I want some. It is breakfast time here, but I would definitely still add the ice is just frozen milk, right? I see Fuji apples in my grocery cart this week.

    You are tempting me to go off my diet!! I am afraid to bake Christmas gifts because I love to have 'a little taste'!! But the Apple Crumble looks delish!


  15. What, you omit the ice cream at breakfast?! You definitely need to start your day with dairy.

  16. After seeing this, I probably will be making dessert just for me! That looks delicious. Thanks for the recipe and for all of the calories I am going to consume! laurie

  17. You are so darn cute.
    Hey!! I just noticed the navigation buttons at the top of your page. I have been wanting to do that for a long time now and finally found a good tutorial last night.
    But I didn't want to start it and not be able to finish it. Way to go, Mary.

  18. The Apple Crumble looks delicious. I will have to try it. Doylene

  19. OHHHHHHHHHHH yummmmmmmmmmmmm! I'm afraid if I made this I would FILL that bowl all the way to the top - just happens to be my favorite! THANKS FOR SHARING.

  20. I can taste that just looking at the picture, YUM!! I love the saucer its sitting on too!

  21. I'm running right out to get apples cream! (for breakfast anytime of day, right?) You show such restraint with your little treat...of which I am sorely lacking....sigh...

  22. Mary,
    I'm afraid you are missing the point; the ice cream is the dairy portion of your breakfast!


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. I love to hear what you have to say!
