The Great Apple Crisp Bake Off

It's about to get real, people.

I love my roommate. I love him a lot. He's a great guy. He's a great cook. But when he tried to tell me his apple crisp was better than mine, I flew into a mad rage and proceeded to bake the best apple crisp known to mankind, ever, in the history of the world.

Then he baked an apple crisp too.

In our inability to come to an agreement over whose recipe was better, we turned to the only logical solution: a bake off, to be judged by our coworkers. Or, rather, my coworkers, as he only has two coworkers and they are obviously not as awesome as my coworkers.

It took two days and, like, twenty people before we finally reached the final verdict: it was a tie. (this photo does not reflect the final score, I just like it better)

Clearly, my coworkers are not as awesome as I thought.

This leaves it up to you, dear internet. Which of these recipes do you like best? Try them both and put your vote in the comments!

Steve's Apple Crisp


Thinly slice 4-5 large apples. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over apples. Add a dash of salt. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with margarine. Pour apples into baking dish. Pour 1/4 cup water over apples. Stir together 3/4 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup melted margarine until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Katie's Apple Crisp

Thinly slice 4-5 large apples. Stir 1 cup sugar, 1 tbs flour, 1/2 tbs cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg into apples. Pour apples into a 9x13 baking dish. Mix together 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 cup quick-cook oatmeal, 1 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp baking soda until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over apples. Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Happy baking!

  1. TBH I would totally eat both of those...but if it makes you feel better your recipe has more sugar I think therefore it must be better. :)
