Baked Apple Crisp with Orchard Picked Apples


Last week I posted a blog in which I talked about visiting an apple orchard down in Davenport, CA. I had a few pounds of apples and all week I kept looking at them sitting on my kitchen counter, wondering what in the heck I should make with them.

Apple Crisp

Saturday rolled around and I knew that I had to do something with the apples before they went bad and this is when I decided to make an apple crisp, with the help of my mom, who makes a delicious apple crisp.

Her recipe was pretty easy to follow and can be changed however one pleases!


  • Half dozen medium sized golden delicious apples, cut into small slices
  • A cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of nutmeg
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 stick of salted butter
  • Half a cup of flower
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, prepare small casserole dish
  2. Cut up apples into thin slices, leaving the skin on the apple
  3. Once apples are all cut, place them in the dish, about 1 inch deep. Pour lemon juice over top of apples and sprinkle salt on the top. Mix this well so that all the apples are evenly covered
  4. In a microwave-safe dish, melt one stick of butter in the microwave.
  5. Add the brown sugar, the rolled oats and the flower to the melted butter.
  6. Next mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
  7. Once it is evenly combined, place over the top of the apples, creating an even layer
  8. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes, covering with aluminum foil.
  9. At 15 minutes remaining, uncover dish and continue to bake.

Let the completed dish cool for 10 minutes. Serve alone or with ice-cream!
