Apple Crumble

Quick and easy plant-based apple crumble perfect for your next family dinner, sponsored by All-Clad Canada.

A classic dessert that never disappoints. We teamed up with All-Clad Canada to bring you this Apple Crumble. Using their Oval Au Gratin we set out to make the classic Fall dessert. Something that was easy to make, yet still delicious and Apple Crumble hit all those marks. No matter how many times you make it, or how many times you eat it, you’re always okay having more. Topped with vanilla ice cream, it’s hard to beat this buttery, comforting dish.

What do we love about Apple Crumble? It’s a simple dessert that doesn’t require fancy ingredients or techniques. Instead a few staple ingredients and a little baking and you have a delicious dessert.

There are six components to a great apple crumble:

  • Apples
  • Plant-based Butter
  • Oats
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Cinnamon

Anything beyond the above is truly up to you, but really an apple crumble doesn’t require much and that’s truly the beauty of it. Made with a blend of granny smith and honey crisp apples, you get both sweet and sour notes. Topped with a buttery crumble and vanilla ice cream everything is balance perfectly.

Now let’s talk about this product. The Oval Au Gratin is the perfect size and shape for this wonderful dessert. The perfect depth for the perfect ratio of crumble to apples. The pan is durable and as always has easy to grip handles.

We were tasked with creating a recipe around the idea of gifting. Instead we opted for the more literally approach.
