Apple Crisp – Goodness of apples, oats, and cinnamon


There is something enticing about the smell of apples cooking with a dash of cinnamon and sugar. And when you love apples in all forms, this is one recipe that would appeal to you.

‘Vanitha’, the malayalam magazine is a good repository of real good recipes. They have a cookery publication ‘Pachakam’ that comes out a few times a year and the recipes in there are pretty enticing and fairly easy to try out as well. Got this recipe from a 2009 edition of ‘Pachakam’


1. Flour – 1 1/2 cups (the recipe says 1 cup, but that didn’t seem enough)
2. Oats – 1 cup (again, the recipe says 3/4 cup, but….)
3. Brown Sugar – 1 cup
4. Cinnamon powder – 1 tsp
5. Butter, softened – 1/2 cup
6. Apple, skinned and cut into small pieces – 4 cups (about 3 normal sized apples)
7. Sugar – 1/2 cup
8. Corn Flour – 1 tbsp
9. Water – 1/2 cup
10. Vanilla essence – 1/2 tsp


1. Pre heat oven to 350F
2. Combine ingredients 1 to 5. This should be coarse

3. Tightly pack half this mix into a baking dish smeared with butter
4. Spread apples on top of this
5. Meanwhile, cook ingredients 7 to 10 on low flame, stirring constantly till it becomes thick
6. Spread it evenly over the layer of apple
7. Cover this tightly with the remaining oats mix
8. Bake for 45 minutes
9. Cool and serve with custard or cream

This tastes better the next day. Allow it to cool completely if you want the pieces to come out well when cut. If you are as impatient as me, go ahead, have it warm 🙂
