Ann of On Sutton Place never ceases to impress with her delicious recipes, and today’s recipe for apple buckle is no exception! The sweet simplicity of this dessert is perfect for showcasing fall apples, and it would be perfect served on its own or with a nice dollop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!
I’m happy to be back here at Positively Splendid with a super easy Apple Buckle recipe. If you’re not sure what a “buckle” is, just think crisp or cobbler. They are all basically the same thing with slight ingredient differences. Buckles usually have an egg in the topping where a crisp does not.
The variety of apples you use is totally a personal choice. Tart apples are not my favorite so for this recipe I used the variety “Gala.” They baked easily yet were not mushy. There’s nothing worse than a mushy fruit dessert (in my opinion!)
1 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 egg beaten
1 stick butter melted (if using salted butter you can use 1/4 t. salt)
6 large apples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. After washing, slice apples and put into a large casserole (or 2 smaller casseroles.) Sprinkle with sugar. In a large bowl or bowl of a standing mixer put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Begin mixing and slowly add the beaten egg. Stir until the mixture resembles course sand. Put topping on apples. Pour melted butter over top. Bake for 40 min. Serve warm if desired.
With Fall right around the corner, this is the perfect dessert for a family dinner or gathering. With an adjusted baking time, this recipe could easily be doubled to feed a crowd!

Yum! Fall is here! This looks so good, Gala apples are on sale this week, I am totally going to make this! Thanks for the “buckle” explanation. There are so many takes on these fruit desserts!
Oh, yum! This looks both delicious and easy to make!

Ooh yum, that looks delicious! And now I know the difference between a buckle and a crisp! Learn something new every day 🙂
Your recipe looks so delish and I imagine it smells wonderful when baking! I’ve never made the egg topping before – I’ll have to try it! I’m also glad to see you don’t peel your apples – I don’t either!! I think it adds great texture to the dessert! I’m not a fan of mushy either!
Oh yummy so good, and so ready for Fall. Looks awesome Ann!
OK, after seeing this, now I’m REALLY hoping that our cooler weather gets here soon! I love to make apple crisps in the Fall, so now I’m definitely going to have to try a buckle instead. Of course mine won’t be as pretty as Ann’s…. but hopefully it will be just as tasty!
I’ve never heard of a buckle but I’m definitely giving this a shot! So delicious looking!

Heavenly!!! Just bought some Gala apples at the farmers’ market yesterday. I am having the girls over for coffee Wednesday. With their coffee, they will be having Apple Buckle. Thank You for explaining what buckle is. Heading over to OnSuttonPlace to check it out. Thank You!
This is similar to a Swedish apple pie recipe I use. It sounds great!
