I’ve combined the deliciousness of a crumble with the simplicity of juicy baked apples! You can make these ahead of time and just pop them in the oven and serve warm and fresh!
Why I love this recipe
My Granny and I used to make baked apples all the time when I was young, I think adding the sweet crumble to the middle really brings out the flavour and makes this a scrumptious dessert!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Core the apples and rinse with cold water, place in a dutch oven or baking dish.
In a medium sized bowl blend salt, 1/2 the cinnamon, cardamom, flour. Mix in 3 tbsp brown sugar. Cut in butter and work with your hands until blended and crumbles.
Spoon crumble mixture into the core of the apples and pack down.
Pour the orange juice evenly into the middle of each apple then Pour the 1/2 cup water into the bottom of the pot.
Sprinkle remaining 2 tbsp brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the apples.
Place on middle rack of preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes or until apples seem soft and just begin to fall apart.
