Fresh Raspberry and Apple Crumble

Author: Samantha Ferraro


  • 1 pint fresh raspberries
  • 3 apples peeled, cored and sliced thinly
  • 3/4 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 c all- purpose flour
  • 2/3 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 7 Tb unsalted butter chilled and diced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 lemon zest and juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine raspberries, apples, white sugar, lemon zest and juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt
  • in a bowl and toss gently to combine. Transfer mixture to baking dish.
  • In same mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar and butter. Rub the butter into the mixture with your fingertips until it holds together and looks like moist clumps.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the berry mixture. This amount will probably give you more than you need, but I like a lot of topping.
  • Bake the crumble until the topping is golden brown and fruit is bubbly. About 45 minutes (for my oven)..so check anywhere between 40-50min.
  • *Suggestion-put a baking sheet underneath with some parchment paper to catch any fruit droppings so it doesn't go all over your oven.
  • When crumble is done, let rest for at least 15 min and serve with ice cream!
