Oat Apple Crisp
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min.
I've made this recipe 3 times. I followed the recipe and instructions exactly. It's come out perfect and delicious every time. I do agree with other reviews saying to adjust the sugar according to the apples you use. The sweetness/tartness of the end result does depend on how sweet/tart the apples are you use. The sweetness/tartness of mine has been slightly different each time. As far as the cake mix goes....it's pretty easy to measure out 9 oz. from a regular size box of cake mix. I don't understand the 1 star reviews because people made the mistake of not checking the ounces on the cake mix package. Because you made a mistake doesn't make the recipe bad. BTW if you have Jiffy brand yellow cake mix available in your area they make a 9 oz box of yellow cake mix. I can't find it where I live so I measure from a regular cake mix box.
I used a 8.6 ounce jiffy corn bread mix in place of the cake mix, added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 2 more tablespoons of butter, and 1/4 cup of apple juice (in addition to the 1/4 cup of water). Great outcome, not too sweet, oatmeal crisp was perfect!
This was a good enough apple crisp, but I prefer a topping that doesn't include cake mix with it's added chemicals.....I do use a mix on rare occasions and had one I needed to use before it became out-dated - that's why I decided to use this recipe - so I weighed out 11 oz., ( two thirds of the mix), and used that in the topping. (The rest of the mix got baked into cupcakes using one third of the ingredients called for on the box.) I could taste something that tasted different, kind of like coconut oil, and it detracted from the delicious taste of apples. A simpler oat topping would have been better and more complimentary to the apples. Still, it was a pretty good dessert.....everyone ate it!
This one is a keeper! My whole family loved this apple crisp! I used honey crisp apples from my local apple orchard. They are a sweet Apple. I may cut back on sugar depending upon which type of apple I use next time. Easy to mix up and easy to bake. No fuss recipe!! I did open a 15 oz cake mix but only used approximately 9 oz. Like others have said be sure to check the size cake mix.
I didn't notice the yellow cake mix isn't the standard size. Way too dry and powdery for topping. It would be helpful to note size of cake mix in parenthesis to draw attention to the fact it's a smaller size.
Please make sure of the size of your cake mix. Most are 15 oz not nine. So measure out cake mix. I used the whole box was like a pile of powder. I ended up adding apple juice half way through just to add some moisture to it. Won't make this again
Delicious! Listened to other reviewers and cut the white sugar down to 2.5 Tablespoons...it was plenty sweet enough! I was out of "real" butter and had to use Country Crock...turned out fine. Put little pats of butter on the crust top to moisten the crunch some (like you would on a dump cake). I used a 9 X13 pan to make it in and this was easily 10 servings. Will be making it for Thanksgiving dinner this year for my guests!
My family just loves this apple crisp. We make it when we go camping (in cabins)
Amazing and delicious! I just used 2-3 TBS of sugar If you love apple crisp this desserts for you
Oh this is so good! Makes enough for 10 people to have a generous serving. The only thing I would change is to add more butter to the topping so it isn't quite so dry. Everyone loved it!!
