What are the best apples to use for apple crumble?
Tart, firm apples like Granny Smith or Honeycrisp hold up well during baking and provide a nice contrast to the sweet crumble topping. Other great options include Pink Lady Apples, Fuji Apples and Golden Delicious Apples!
Can I use different fruits in an apple crumble recipe?
Absolutely! You can mix apples with other fruits like peaches, nectarines, berries, or cherries to add different flavors and textures or even use them by themselves! You’ll discover all of the different fruity varieties in the collection below.
What’s the difference between a crumble and a crisp?
Crumbles and Crisps both offer a fruity filling under a crumbly topping. The difference often lies in the topping: a crumble usually has a streusel-like topping made of flour, sugar, and butter, while a crisp includes oats or nuts, giving it a crunchier texture.
How do I adjust baking times for different fruits?
Softer fruits like berries may require less baking time, while firmer fruits like apples might need a bit longer. Monitor your crumble and bake until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden.
Can I use canned or frozen fruits in crumbles and crisps?
Yes, both canned and frozen fruits can be used, but make sure to drain canned fruits well, and consider that frozen fruits may release more moisture as they bake.
How do I store leftover apple crumble?
Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a few days. You can reheat it in the oven, air fryer or microwave.
