Apple Crisp with a scoop of Ice cream
This is a healthy dessert I can say, as there’s oats, brown sugar and apple in there , what else needed to make it more healthy.Soccer man said he’s not interested even in tasting this dessert as he didn’t like its look, I must confess even I didn’t like it when I first made it but believe me it taste good and different too. Thank God my NA didn’t judge this dessert by its looks , she tried it first because the ice cream attracted her but then when she had it , to my surprise, she told me to give her more ….Mommy Happy….Happy Mommy
Tried it with just 2 normal red apple’s : actually there are specific apple’s for baking/cooking but I didn’t know that till yesterday.
Brown sugar 3 table spoon
Cinnamon powder -1/4 tsp
Nutmeg – freshly grated -1/4 tsp (Optional)
Orange juice & zest of 1/2 orange
For the topping
Oats- 1/2 cup
All purpose flour – 1/4 cup
Butter – 3/4 cup (chopped in to cubes)
Sugar – 3/4 cup (I used brown sugar )
Pre heat the oven to 375 degree F
* Chop the apple in to small pieces (the original recipe says to slice these apple to medium pieces) , mix 3 table spoon brown sugar , cinnamon , nutmeg (if you are using it) orange zest and juice , toss all the ingredients to completely coat the apple pieces. Arrange these to a medium size casserole dish or any baking dish.
* In an other bowl , combine flour , sugar and butter , mix using your fingers (the best kitchen tool) , mashing them until crumbly , the butter shouldn’t melt here , it should be like crumbs , add oat meal and toss , if the mixture looks dry sprinkle little water , better if its apple cider.
*Sprinkle the mixture on top of the apple. and Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
And now I know there is no point in judging things by its look !!
