Ooni Recipe Book: Apple and Cranberry Crumble

Apple and Cranberry Crumble

Mix up a classic apple crumble with the addition of tart cranberries to butter-soft fruit and a toasted, oat-filled, crunchy topping – all cooked in one pan using Ooni’s cast iron Skillet. 



Serves 6

For the crumble topping
½ stick (50g) butter, melted
⅓ cup (80ml) coconut oil, melted
3.5oz (100g) rolled oats
3.5oz (100g) instant oats
3 tbsp plain flour
1.8oz (50g) shaved almonds
3.5oz (100g) brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg

For the filling
Olive oil
1 tbsp cornflour
5 green apples, peeled & chopped
3.5oz (100g) fresh or frozen cranberries
2.8oz (80g) brown sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract
4 tbsp maple syrup

Vanilla ice cream, to serve


  1. Preheat your Ooni Pizza Oven to 350F (180C)

  2. In a bowl, combine all the topping ingredients until well combined and set aside.

  3. Brush your skillet pan with olive oil and place inside the oven to warm up

  4. In a small bowl, add 4 tablespoons of boiling water to the cornflour and mix until well combined. Set aside.

  5. Remove the skillet from the oven once warm. Add the apples and bake for 5 minutes until they become soft and tender. 

  6. Add the corn flour & water mixture, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Coat the apples and cranberries. 

  7. Return coated apples and cranberries to the oven and bake for another 7 minutes, until the apples turn a light golden color.

  8. Top the fruit evenly with the crumble mixture and continue to cook for another 10 minutes, or until the topping is toasted and crunchy.

  9. Remove the skillet from the oven and serve warm, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
