Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 6



  • 3/4 c. oatmeal (I've used both instant and regular, but prefer instant)
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. melted butter


  • 3 lb. apples (any good baking apple works)
  • 1 T. flour (I use at least 2 heaping tablespoons, even though the recipe calls for one)
  • 1/2 - 1 c. sugar (depends on sweetness level you want - I use 1/2 cup)


  1. Stir dry topping ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Add melted butter and mix until combined.
  3. Peel the apples and slice them, putting them into a 9X9 pan (I use a glass baking dish. The apples usually fill it right to the top.)
  4. Sprinkle the flour and sugar over the sliced apples.
  5. Put the topping mixture over the apples.
  6. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. (I like to bake it long enough that the juices are bubbling and the topping is crisp and slightly browned. I stick a toothpick in several spots to ensure the apples are done/soft.)
