What could be better than a baked apple crumble this time of year? This one is a classic.

Peel and core your apples (a tart apple like McIntosh or Granny Smith is best) then cut them into ¼-inch slices.

Put the apples in a large bowl with rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground ginger. Then, sprinkle the apples with flour and salt and mix until the filling is thoroughly combined and all the apples are coated.

Spread the apple mixture evenly into the bottom of a greased 9x9-inch baking dish. A glass or ceramic baking dish works best for apple crumble.

In a new bowl, mix flour, oats, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and butter. Cut the butter into the oats and flour with a fork or use your fingers to combine the mixture; it’s done when it has a crumbly consistency.

Sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the apple filling and bake the apple crumble until it’s hot, bubbling, and golden brown, about an hour and a half. Then, let your apple crumble cool slightly before serving.
