Cranberry Apple Casserole

Arielle Hess
This cranberry apple casserole is a delicious holiday treat, perfect to prepare as a side to an autumn or winter brunch. Cranberry and apples are baked with a crunchy oat and cinnamon topping, and the result is a sweet-tart warming dish that pairs wonderfully with yogurt or whipped cream.

  • 4 cups cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 to 2 medium to large granny smith apples
  • 1 ½ cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp tbsp softened butter
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder


  • Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
  • Grease a 6 x 9-inch casserole dish.
  • Peel and finely chop 1-2 granny smith apples. Cut apples to roughly ½ inch in size.
  • In a bowl, toss together 4 cups cranberries, fresh or frozen, chopped apples, ¾ cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Pour into the casserole dish.
  • In a bowl, put 1 cup rolled oats, 6 tablespoons softened butter cut into cubes, ¾ cup brown sugar, 1 cup flour, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon salt. With your hands, blend the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is in small, pea-sized pieces.
  • Sprinkle the oat topping over the fruit.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the fruit is bubbling, the topping is golden brown, and the mixture has reduced.
  • Allow the casserole to cool before serving.
  • Serve with whipped cream, yogurt, whipped mascarpone, or on its own.


When you make this dish, you should make sure that you stir the cranberry and apple well to ensure that the fruit is fully coated in sugar, spices, and flour. This will help ensure that the casserole bakes properly and that you aren’t left with any clumps of flour in your dish.
