Apple Caramel Crumble

Apple Caramel Crumble


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 4 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 375 and spray a square baking dish with non-stick spray.

In a stockpot, melt the butter over low heat, then add the sugar and corn syrup; stir to dissolve the sugar.  Add the apples, lemon juice and spices.  Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes until the apples are softened.  Stir in the bourbon, then scrape the mixture into the baking dish.

For the topping, use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour, sugar, oats and salt.  Sprinkle over the apples.

Bake for about 35-40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.  Cool for 30 minutes, then serve warm with ice cream.
