Christmas in July: Apple Crisp Recipe

Homemade Apple Crisp Recipe

Nothing screams the Holidays like apples and cinnamon. Add them both to a delicious crisp and you are all set!

What I love the most about this recipe are the homemade apples. Not only do they taste delish, they fill your house with a warm aroma as they are cooking on the stove.

This apple crisp recipe tastes great warm or cold! Yes, I said cold. I eat it right out of the fridge.


  • Apples
  • 6 medium apples peeled and chunked
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • Crisp
  • 1/2 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick butter salted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Cooking spray


  • Peel and dice the apples into small pieces (about the size of a dime) and squeeze a lemon over top.
  • Stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and then toss together with the apples until fully coated.
  • Pour the maple syrup over top and gently stir.
  • Heat apples on the stove over medium heat for 15-20 minutes until soft. Stir occasionally.
  • You want the apples to be soft.
  • If the apples are sticking to the pan add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the saucepan as needed.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Fill dish with apple crisp filling.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 of the cake mix over the filling.
  • Slice cold butter into slices and neatly cover cake mix.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.


Notes: Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream over the top of hot apple crisp!
