What could be more warming than a humble slice of apple crumble?

This recipe is made by @mushypeaz, where a generous glug of Graza “Sizzle” Extra Virgin Olive Oil is used to incorporate the dry ingredients and create that crumble-like texture that we all know and love. Plus, a good EVOO like “Sizzle” adds a wonderful, nuanced flavour to the baked dish, keeping the ‘crumb’ deliciously moist and not dry.

For a little extra crunch and flavour, add a pinch of Maldon Salt. The sea salt flakes gives balance to the dish, elevating the sweetness and counteracting the bitter tones.

When looking for a final topping, add a swirl of Graza “Drizzle” Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your ice cream scope. The EVOO not only allows the ice cream to hold a perfect silky and smooth texture, but also adds depth to the dish, creating a complex flavour profile.

Here is how to make the Olive Oil Apple Crumble…

  1. Peel 1½ pound apples and slice thinly.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  3. In a large bowl, mix apples, ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp flour, 1 tsp vanilla extract, a pinch of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  4. Add the apple mix to a 2 quart baking dish.
  5. To make the crumble, thoroughly mix 1¼ cup flour, ⅔ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup pecans or walnuts, 1¼ tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp kosher salt in a medium bowl.
  6. Squeeze in ½ cup of Sizzle and mix gently until dry ingredients are just incorporated. Make sure not to over-mix to maintain big clumps of crumble!
  7. Evenly distribute crumble mixture over apples and dust with a tbsp or so of granulated or turbinado sugar.
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes until crumble is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Let cool before serving if you can!
  9. Enjoy à la mode with a scoop of ice cream, a big swirl of Drizzle, and a pinch of Maldon Salt.
