Wondering what to do with all those fall apples? Apple Crumble happens to be one of the easiest and most rewarding desserts you can offer guests or family. It doesn’t just taste amazing, it also makes your whole house smell wonderful!
We would like to share a recipe developed over years of trial and error with our chai fans. This is a gluten-free version since many folks have developed a gluten intolerance. And between the fruit, the whole grain oats and the nuts, you have to admit this is a pretty healthy dessert.
Apples love spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger. Why mess with measuring out a bunch of different spices when Tipu’s Chai Now® Unsweetened Masala Chai offers just the perfect combination of flavors to make apples sing?
So let’s get started. First, know your apples. The best ones for baking are slightly tart, firm apples like Granny Smiths. But any apple can make a great crumble. Even better, combine several different kinds of apples for complexity. Taste them as you are chopping. If they are sweet, add a tablespoon of lemon juice to them to liven up the flavor. If they are extra juicy, add a smidge more cornstarch.
We think you’ll like this family favorite. It’s easy to get those kiddos after school to help make it. And when it comes, warm and fragrant out of the oven, it is a perfect vehicle for a little vanilla ice cream.
