If you’re in the mood for a light dessert, apple crunch is great and easy to make. It’s best to make during the fall when apples are fresh and inexpensive, but that shouldn’t stop you from making it now.
First, you’ll need a 9-by-13-inch baking pan, 2 small mixing bowls, 6 apples, 1 egg, 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of white sugar, 1 tablespoon of water, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/3 cup of melted butter or margarine.
Begin by peeling and slicing the apples, and place them in a baking pan. To prevent apples from turning into mush, try not to use Red Delicious and yellow apples. I recommend Granny Smith apples because they keep their shape and have a little more tartness to them. This keeps the dish from being too sweet.
Next, put the lemon juice across the apples. Sprinkle in the brown sugar, and mix it together. Blend the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Set the bowl aside for now. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl and set aside as well.
Mix the bowl of egg and water with the flour mixture until you see a crumble-like texture. Spread the combination atop the apples evenly, then pour the melted margarine or butter over the top. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 45 minutes or until it’s light brown. When it’s ready, serve it warm with ice cream if you’d like.
