Cider-Apple Crumble In a New Light

Paula Deen's healthy Apple Crumble.
  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Prep: 15 minutes
  • Cook: 50 minutes


1/2cup golden raisins, coarsely chopped
3tablespoons apple cider or apple juice
4 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
5tablespoons sugar
1 1/2teaspoons ground cinnamon
pinch salt
1/2cup white whole wheat flour
1/4cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2tablespoons canola oil


  1. Combine raisins and cider in a small bowl.  Let stand until plump, about 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Spray a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. Toss together the apples, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.  Spoon into the baking dish.  Sprinkle raisin mixture over the top.
  4. To make the topping, using a fork, combine flour, oats, the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar, oil, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl until well blended.  Sprinkle evenly over the filling.
  5. Bake until the filling is bubbly and the topping is golden, 45 – 50 minutes.  If the topping starts to brown too quickly, loosely cover with a piece of foil during the last 15 minutes of baking time.  Cool on a rack.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
