Scale

Ingredients

For the Filling:

  • 5 cups apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (I used Granny Smith)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into cubes

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • Caramel sauce, for serving

Instructions

For the Filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Combine the apples, sugars, flour, spices, lemon juice/zest, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well until everything is evenly coated. Place the apples in the prepared baking dish, spread in an even layer, and dot the butter cubes over top (spread them out as evenly as possible).

For the Streusel Topping:

  1. Combine the oats, spices, flour, sugars, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to mix. Add the cold butter and pulse until just incorporated and crumbly.
  2. Evenly distribute the streusel over the top of the apples and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until bubbly and golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve warm with ice cream and drizzled with caramel (this chai caramel would work perfectly here!).
