The video below is the source of recipe and general directions. Some changes have been added. Notes will be made as appropriate.

This recipe is also using a 4-ingredient caramel sauce from a previous post. See it here.

The source video also has its recipe for caramel sauce and how to make it. Check it out.

Make the Crumble Topping:

In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon, salt and butter. Use a fork to break up and mix butter with the crumble. Use your clean hands to mix properly if you have to.

Set aside in refrigerator till ready for use.

Make the Apple Filling:

Warm a 10-inch cast iron skillet in medium heat. You can use any type of stove top skillets for this step. We're just going to cook the apples.

Shred 2 apples. This step is not in the video below, but I saw it in a Gordon Ramsay video for apple crumbles and wanted to incorporate it.

Chop up 4 apples into cuts or slices in the size you desire. It's ok to leave the apples unpeeled. But do so if desired.

Add butter into the skillet. Stir it a few times to melt it.

Add shredded apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract and salt into the skillet. Mix for a minute or two. Shredded apples should look melted.

Add chopped apples, flour and lemon. Stir for a minute or two. Add caramel sauce and continue stirring till well mixed.

Putting it together:

Pre-heat oven to 350 deg F.

Turn off heat and remove skillet from stove top. Add crumble on top of apple filling. Spread it around.

Next step is also not in the video but from Gordon Ramsay, place the skillet on stove and turn on heat again. When caramel sauce starts bubbling, remove from stove top and place skillet in pre-heated oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
