Brown Butter, Salty Manuka Honey, Pecan & Apple Crumble



15 minutes


1 hour

  • 6 large Honeycrisp apples, cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup manuka honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt

For the Pecan Topping:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ old fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons softened butter, cubed
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8 inch glass baking dish.
  2. To the baking dish, add the apples, lemon juice, flour, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg, plus a pinch of sea salt. Gently toss to combine; this does not need to be perfect.
  3. To make the topping, place the butter in a small saucepan and cook 5-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown and toasted. Combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Add the butter and mix until everything is moist and clumps together. Sprinkle the topping over the apples.
  4. Place the dish on a cookie sheet to catch drips and place in the oven. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden and the apples have created a caramel like sauce that is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temp with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
