Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 1 hour Servings: 6
An apple crisp with vanilla bean and caramel sauce.
5 cups granny smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise & scraped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup flour
2/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted
1+ cup caramel sauce
🍎 Toss the apples with the sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, and nutmeg.
🍎 Mix the flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter in a large bowl until it forms crumbs.
🍎 Place the apple mixture into an 8×8 inch baking dish and pour the topping on.
🍎 Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
🍎 Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
For the Cake:
2 cups (284g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp table salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
4 cups (468g) peeled, cored and 1/4-inch diced apples*
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup (210g) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (58g) packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1/2 cup chopped pecans, for topping (optional)
Sticky brown sugar sauce
1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter, diced into 1 Tbsp pieces
1 cup (220g) packed light-brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp fine sea salt (or sub table salt)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
🎂 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 by 8-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves for 20 seconds, set aside. In a separate medium mixing bowl toss apple cubes with lemon juice, set aside.
🎂 In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whip together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time. With mixer set on low speed slowly add in flour mixture and mix just until combined (batter will be really thick). Add apples and mix just until combined (batter will still be thick). Pour batter into prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Bake in preheated oven until toothpick inserted into center comes out free of batter (a moist crumb is fine), about 33 – 38 minutes (prepare topping around last 5 – 10 minutes of baking so they’ll both be served warm). Let cool about 5 minutes then cut into squares and serve warm topping each slice with sauce and optional pecans.
For the sauce:
🍰 In a medium saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, milk and salt (you can add a little extra if you like more of a salted caramel/toffee flavor). Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Allow to boil 1 1/2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let sauce cool slightly. Serve warm over warm cake (note that as the sauce sits and cools the brown sugar will begin to crystalize. Simply microwave it, in a large microwave safe bowl, until it bubbles, about 1 minute and whisk well).
👉🏻 highly recommend using a blend of tart and sweet apples for this cake. Use granny smith, golden delicious and gala.
