crock pot ginger apple crumble

Warm fruit desserts are perfect for Fall entertaining and enjoyment.  And, making them in a slow cooker is just so easy.  This recipe comes together in about 10 minutes, but cooks very slowly on low for 6 hours. Served with either whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream makes this ginger apple sensation hard to resist seconds.

How I made this delicious Fall recipe:  Start by peeling and slicing 5-6 apples of choice.  I used Gala apples last week. I used a quick spray of Pam around the ceramic crock pot and placed the apples in the bottom of the cooker.  Next, I combined the following ingredients and placed them on the apples– 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 3/4 cup rolled oats, about 1 teaspoon of chopped candied ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of chopped margarine.  I had mixed these ingredients well before placing into the slow cooker.

Cover the crock pot and allow to cook for 6 hours.  Stir and serve warm.  A simple but tasty dessert. And, the ginger is what makes the difference. Yummy.



    • I did not use real ginger from the produce department in this recipe. I used candied ginger from the baking aisle and powdered ginger. If you do not have the candied ginger, I would just increase the powdered ginger a small amount–perhaps only an 1/8 of a teaspoon. Powdered ginger is very concentrated. Personally, I liked the subtle taste of the candied ginger that was chopped into very small pieces.
