Apple Crisp for Two

Monday, October 19, 2009

I find it very hard to find a recipe that is just for two people. I love to cook and love to eat what I cook but after the third night of reheats, it gets a little tiring. Lately, I've been going thru my recipes and am trying to scale down my recipes to two servings. One example of a recipe would be Apple Crisp. My husband loves Apple Crisp but by the 3rd day, gets thrown in the garbage. I played around with my Apple Crisp recipe and instead of using a pie plate, I baked it in a loaf pan and it came out terrific.

Apple Crisp for Two

2 Granny Smith apples; peeled, cored and sliced
1 tbsp. orange juice
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. oats
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
Dash salt
3 tbsp. butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel, core and slice apples. Place apples in a buttered 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Pour orange juice over apples (this will keep apples from turning brown). In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt until well combined. Cut in butter, until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. Serve with ice cream and whipped cream.

This is how I need to make apple crisp. I often make one in a 9x13-inch baking pan and we're eating for days.

This looks fantastic. I love anything apple: apple dumplings, apple pie, apple crisp.

The monkey bread looks terrific too.

I wanted to thank you for stopping by. Goodluck on the Giveaway.

Take Care.

I'm always scaling down recipes for 2. Sometimes it's a pain (measuring out 1/2 an egg!), so I'm always happy to have someone do the work for me. And this crisp looks delish!

It is always hard to scale down to 2. So when I make tarts, I use 2 small tart tin.... hehehe.. but this works too!

I like this. It's just my husband and I now, and any recipe for two I appreciate. Apple crisp is my favorite!

Good idea with the loaf pan!

Simply Life said...

I agree with you and we usually end up just eating a lot more than 1 serving size...opps! This is a great idea- thanks!

I'm with everyone -- great idea. And the loaf pan... how brilliant (and obvious) is that?? And yet, I've never done it :)
