  • Cast Iron Skillet
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Ice Cream Scoop


  • 5 Gala Apples skin removed and sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon divided
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon Allspice divided
  • 3 medium Bananas peeled and sliced
  • cup Flour spooned and leveled
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Butter cold and cut into cubes


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF and coat a cast-iron skillet or glass baking dish with cooking spray or oil.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the apple slices, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon of allspice.
  • Add the bananas to the mixing bowl and gently fold them in with the apples. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of the prepared skillet or baking dish.
  • In a separate mixing bowl toss the flour, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger, and 1/8 teaspoon of allspice together.
  • Add the cold butter cubes and use a fork or pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour mixture.
  • Spread the crumble topping over the apple banana mixture in the skillet or baking dish. Cover with foil.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and remove the foil. Then cook an additional 15 to 18 minutes until the crumble begins to turn a golden brown.


  • The best apples for a crumble are gala apples. They have a mildly sweet flavor that pairs perfectly with the other ingredients.
  • Peel the skin off the apples. Before adding them into the recipe make sure to peel the skin off so the apple will soften and caramelize properly while it bakes.
  • Make this cobbler gluten-free. Swap regular flour for any version of gluten-free flour and use gluten-free oats.
