  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar tightly packed 70g
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4-5 large apples peeled cored, and sliced about 1/3" - 1/2" thick (this is about 3 lbs -- I like to use Honeycrisp or Gala) 1.4kg
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts optional
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter cut into 6 pieces


  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C) and lightly grease a deep 9x9 pan with butter.
  • In a large bowl, stir together your sugars, cinnamon, and cornstarch until well-combined.
  • Add the apples and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with lemon juice and add walnuts (if using) and stir again until well-combined.
  • Transfer apple mixture into your prepared baking pan (be sure to scrape out all sugar/juice from the bowl) and dot with butter pieces.
  • Cover pan with foil and transfer to 375F (190C) oven. Bake for 60 minutes or until apples are tender when pierced with a fork, stopping every 15 minutes to stir apples.
  • Serve warm, top with ice cream if desired.
