Show off you culinary prowess with our homemade einkorn caramel apple crumble recipe. OK, it sounds kinda fancy, but we promise, there’s really nothing to preparing this comfort-food-grade dessert.
We used the season’s best Granny Smith apples to provide the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Give your apples a head start on the baking process to keep the crumb topping from getting too crispy. Once they’ve baked for about 20 minutes, top the dish with a generous amount of crumbles, then bake for another 20–25 minutes.
We recommend weighing the einkorn for better accuracy, but you can always fluff the goods using a fork before adding it to your measuring cup. If, on the other hand, you’re not emotionally ready to give einkorn a tumble, don’t worry! We got your back. You can try a similar, all-purpose version of caramel apple crumble pie.

Einkorn Caramel Apple Crumble Recipe
- Place rack in the center of the oven then preheat to 400 degrees. Coat an 8" x 8" dish with cooking spray and set aside.
- Core and thinly slice 8 cups of apples. Toss apple slices with granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt until ingredients are evenly combined and form a smooth sauce that will coat the apples. NOTE: When working with fresh fruit, the amount of thickener you need depends on how ripe the fruit is. If you’re using super sweet, ripe fruit, increase the flour by 1 or 2 Tbsp.
- Pour ½ of the apples into the prepared pan. Arrange apples evenly in the bottom of the dish then drizzle ¼ cup caramel sauce over the apples.
- Add remaining apples, arrange them evenly, then drizzle an additional ¼ cup caramel sauce over the apples—reserve remaining caramel sauce to serve with the finished crumble.
- Bake 20 minutes to give the apples a head start while you prepare the crumb topping.
- In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and salt until combined, then add softened butter, blending until the butter has incorporated with the dry ingredients and a crumbly consistency forms—sometimes getting in there and pinching with your fingers is the best way to do this.
- Once the dish has baked for 20 minutes, remove from the oven. Spread crumble mixture evenly over the apples then return to the oven for 20–25 minutes. The crumble will acquire a golden hue and the edges will bubble with caramel.
- Remove the from the oven and let cool completely so filling can set before slicing. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and the reserved caramel sauce. Enjoy!
