Baked apple sweetened with raisins, orange juice, and cinnamon is graced with a simple crumb topping. For a sweeter flavor, try Braeburn apples.
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 cups diced peeled Granny Smith apple
1 tablespoon golden raisins
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine flour, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Combine 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, apple, and next 4 ingredients (apple through cinnamon), tossing well. Divide apple mixture evenly between 2 (6-ounce) ramekins coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with flour mixture. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Good flavor. Didn't have orange juice, so used a little extra lemon juice. Just regular raisins because I also didn't have the golden ones. Not nearly enough crumble. I think next time I would add oatmeal to make it add more texture. Would definitely make again! Also liked that it was a recipe for 2.
I made this for my husband and I for Valentine's Day and it was wonderful. Very quick to prepare and delicious. I served it warm with a bit of vanilla ice cream and we both loved it. I will definitely make it again.
I will definately make this recipe again - maybe even for Thanksgiving. I used red apples that were on the verge of being too grainy to eat plain and used dried cranberries instead of raisins. I tripled the recipe, using 5 smallish apples, and baked in a 8x11 glass pan for 30 min. I served it with low-fat vanilla ice cream. Yum!
