Is there anything better than apples, crumble topping and vanilla ice cream? Apple Crumble Ice Cream combines them all together and tastes amazing.
This is a simple no churn ice cream base that is flavored with vanilla and a bit of cinnamon. The small cubes of apples are simmered with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cooking them will remove the moisture and prevent any ice from forming in the ice cream. A simple oat crumble topping is baked until golden brown. Half of the crumble is stirred into the ice cream, the remainder is used as topping for the ice cream when serving.
If you want to take this one step further, make the simple caramel sauce from Caramel Apple Pancakes and turn it into a sundae.
