Cast-Iron Apple Cinnamon Crumble

0

There’s one thing that I absolutely LOVE about fall.

Apples.

And there’s one thing that I’m always on the lookout for.

Recipes.

I recently discovered WinnDixie’s “Cooking with Curtis for under $10” program. It’s a program that offers customers fresh, seasonal, and affordable meals that can easily be made from scratch at home. All for under $10.

The recipe that caught my eye? The Cast-Iron Apple Cinnamon Crumble. My mom ALWAYS cooked with a cast-iron skillet, and I even inherited one of her skillets, so today I went to the store and created this heavenly dish myself! The total cost for this yumminess: $8.83.

Cast-Iron Apple Cinnamon Crumble

prep time 15 minutes
cook time 70 minutes
serves 4 people

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Winn-Dixie all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3/4 cup Winn-Dixie old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup Winn-Dixie granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Winn-Dixie fine sea salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) chilled Winn-Dixie unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2/3 cup packed Winn-Dixie light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Winn-Dixie ground cinnamon
  • 3 Gala or Braeburn apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, cored and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • Prestige vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a chilled medium bowl, mix 3/4 cup of the flour, oats, granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to blend. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until moist clumps form. Freeze the topping for about 10 minutes, or until firm..
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the brown sugar, remaining 2 tablespoons of the flour, cinnamon, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt together. Add the apple wedges and toss to coat. Transfer the apple filling to a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, mounding it above the skillet rim. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can use a 10-inch-diameter sauté pan or deep-dish pie dish. Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the apple filling. The filling and crumble topping will be domed in the skillet, but will cook down throughout baking.
  4. Place the skillet on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil to catch any juices that will bubble over. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let the crumble cool for about 10 minutes. Spoon the crumble into bowls and serve warm with the ice cream, if desired.
