Ingredients

Filling

  • 5 to 6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons boiled cider
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch, optional
  • pinch of salt

Topping

  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 1 cup gluten-free oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt

Directions

see this recipe's blog »

1) Pulse some gluten-free bread (approximately 1/2 loaf, depending on loaf size) in your food processor and set 3 1/2 cups of the crumbs aside for the topping.

2) To make the filling: Peel, core, and slice about 6 apples; the variety is your choice.

3) Combine the boiled cider and orange juice, and toss with the apples.

4) Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt. To thicken the filling, add 1 tablespoon gluten-free tapioca starch. Toss the apples with the sugar/spice mixture to coat, and spread in an 8" square pan.

5) To make the topping: Mix 3 cups of the bread crumbs, the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Pour the melted butter over the mixture and stir, allowing the bread crumbs to absorb the butter.

6) Press the topping evenly over the apples and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the topping is golden and the apple filling is bubbling.

7) Remove from the oven, and serve warm; ice cream or whipped cream are a tasty topping.

Yield: about 8 servings.

  • DELICIOUS and so simple. The only change I made was to add some nuts to the topping and since I used GF old fashioned oats, I pulsed them a few times in the food processor as I prefer the texture. But you would certainly not need to do so. I also use Pumpkin Pie Spice as I prefer the addition of the ginger. These changes are based on my preferences only and not necessary for the success of the final product. I would encourage anyone to give this recipe a try. You won't be disappointed.
