In this post: Easy Apple Buckle recipe that’s made with your favorite apple variety. Can easily be doubled for a party or family gathering! Apple dessert recipe.
I’m back today with a super easy Apple Buckle recipe. If you’re thinking to yourself, “What the heck is a buckle?” I have the answer. Just think crisp or cobbler. They are all basically the same thing with slight ingredient differences. Buckles usually have an egg in the topping where a crisp does not. Then again…somewhere out there I’m sure there’s a buckle recipe that doesn’t call for an egg in the topping. You just never know.
The variety of apples you use is totally a personal choice. Tart apples are not my favorite so for this recipe I used the variety “Gala.” They baked easily yet were not mushy. There’s nothing worse than a mushy fruit dessert (in my opinion!) Another really good choice would be Honeycrisp. I can eat a Honeycrisp apple every day. They are so good and the perfect balance of tart and sweet. I did not peel my apples either…but that’s a personal choice. If you like peeled apples in your buckle, go for it!This is the perfect dessert for a family dinner or gathering. With an adjusted baking time, this recipe could easily be doubled to feed a crowd. Of course, if you time it right and serve it warm, adding ice cream would be truly amazing!
All this month I will be sharing my best apple recipes, both new and old. Fall has arrived so it’s time to embrace the season. One of the ways I do that is to start making all my “comfort food” favorites. All will be easy and you know me…I try very hard to avoid odd ingredients. I hope along the way you find something that your family loves.
