Apple and pomegranate crumble

    1 hour

    A wonderful change from the average apple crumble. Apples and pomegranate seeds are topped with a buttery crumble, before being baked to perfection. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    My family and I thought this was a great recipe! I, as usual, could not stick to the recipe and modified it by halving the recipe, putting it in a pie crust, adding lemon juice to the apples, using more pomegranate (as suggested in a previous review) and dotting the top with caramel quarters. I was really surprised as it was not 'seedy', as I had expected, and the chewy bits of caramel were quite nice! This dessert was a big hit!  -  10 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I scaled this down to 2 servings and used a 7 x 5" pan. That made 1/8 of a pomegranate so I just used about 1/2 c seeds. It's very good but the pomegranate taste wasn't very noticeable although that could be due to my scaling down, not the original recipe. I will use more pomegranate seeds next time and maybe even some pomegranate syrup.  -  02 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Easy to make and even easier to eat. A great way to use a pomegranate.  -  06 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
