It’s apple time here in Quebec! My sister and I went to pick some (ok I admit it, a lot of) apples last week. It’s time to do all sort of apple recipes: puree, crisp, cake and so on!
What is funny with this blog is I’m not used to translating recipes from French to English (the other way around is much easier!). I have on the contrary no problem doing a recipe that is written in English. Well, it’s true that it’s not the same to understand and to translate, but still, I though that it would be easier! For this post, I didn’t know what a croustade aux pommes was in English. I thought it was apple crust, but when I searched the web, it really wasn’t! And then there was the crumble, which resemble but isn’t the same thing as a crisp! So I finally figured out the name (I think!).
This is a very easy recipe. It takes about 15 minutes… hum, depending on your dexterity to peel apples (I am improving, but this is the longest part of this recipe). Here is the recipe!
Before I forget, I just added some facts in the about me page. You might like to take a look!
Yield : not enough! I strongly suggest you double the recipe. About 6 portions.
1 ¼ cups rolled oats
¼ cup flour
¼ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup butter or margarine, melted
6 big apples, little squares or thin slices as you prefer
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup brown sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350°F
2. Combine the oat, flour, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter. Mix well. Reserve.
3. In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, the cinnamon and the apples. (I prefer to do the apple mix after the crisp one because the apples tend to turn brown quickly)
4. Put the apple mix in a square baking pan (8 or 9 po). Add the crisp mix evenly over apples. Bake for about 50 minutes or until brown and crispy.
5. This is heavenly with vanilla ice cream!
