Stuffed Apple Crumble

These have been an obsession this summer at the cottage! I think I may have baked this recipe over ten times in the last two months! They may look complicated to make, but the ingredients are simple - and once you give it a try, they aren't hard to make!



This dessert is perfect for Fall, and looks pretty impressive! A different spin on the classic apple crumble. Topped with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Start by cutting the top of the apple off with a paring knife. Then, use a spoon or scoop with a sharp edge to carve the inside of the apple. I have a starbucks scoop (for coffee) and I find the edges are a bit sharper, and it really helps scoop the apple out. Keep the insides of the apple.
  3. Once the insides of the apples are carved out, chop up the insides of the apple. make sure to remove the stem and the seeds. 
  4. Add the apple pieces to a pot. Add 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon to the pot. Cook it on medium heat until the apple is tender.
  5. While the apple pieces are cooking, prepare the crumble topping. 
  6. Place the chilled butter in a bowl with 1/4 cup of flour, 1/8 cup of rolled oats, 1 tsp of brown sugar, 2 tsp of brown sugar, pinch of salt and 1 tsp of cinnamon. Combine the ingredients together by rubbing the butter into the dry mixture. The easier way to do this is with your hands. 
  7. Add the apple pieces (now a wet/sticky consistency) to the carved out apples. Then, top with the crumble mixture. 
  8. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Serve hot, and top with vanilla ice cream (and caramel sauce!?)
