Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe

There’s nothing better than sharing time with loved ones and this weekend we did just that along with these Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe !

My family love desserts for breakfast and every once in a while, we all literally make it a point to be in the kitchen together and make something.

More than the helping hands, I love the energy we all bring to my tiny kitchen…. lots of laughter, a little bit of scattered stuff and tons of chatter.

That’s exactly what I envision a fun family weekend.

And with this Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe, that’s exactly what happens. Not everyone at home loves to cook/bake or even chop but we love being around each other.

If that’s not enough, We ALL Love Good Food and with the start of apple season, I decided to make this individual crostata for breakfast.

Since everyone wanted to do their part, I also thought why not keep it Semi-Homemade.

I could have made the dough but seriously the frozen store-bought biscuit doughs are so EASY & Perfect for a Rustic Crust.

So, you can see all the recipe ingredients above, it’s extremely simple and one thing we did was added honey instead of sugar (but you can use sugar or any other sweetener).

Before we go ahead, for anyone who wants to know – Crostata is an Italian baked pie/tart or also popularly known for it’s rustic, free-form, fruit-filled tart.

It can be both savory or sweet but we looooooove it sweet, so why not start with these Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe 🙂

making the Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe

I’m calling it a ‘Breakfast Apple Costata’ because apart from fresh juicy apple, I’m also using an oats crumble filling.

The filling is not like the usual heavy or buttery crumbles but extremely light.

Breakfast Apple Crostata Recipe process


You don’t have to marinate or wait for anything. Just mix, toss and bake.




My favorite part was folding the crostata dough and slathering it with a coating of egg for that extra golden + crisp finish (once baked).


Within 5-6 minutes of baking, your kitchen will be filled with this sweet mild scent of apples+cinnamon.

That smell literally makes us so hungry that we are ready to pounce on the Breakfast Apple Crostata as soon as they come out of the oven (15 minutes total baking time).

Oh and I baked ALL 4 Crostata at the same time cause who wants to be second 😉 everyone wanted that first batch.

Once the Crostata is on the table, I simply add some fresh whipped cream and some honey on top.

That is exactly how much we could wait. But you can add any other topping too.




Infact, these also make a great Breakfast or Dessert when you have friends or even for a large gathering.

So go ahead and give them a try ASAP and let me know How you Felt ?

    Look forward to making, and love the biscuit idea. Was just curious what #2 means regarding “mix using floor” ?! Also, my oven is difficult to figure out where to place such a dish to bake i.e. which level rack would you suggest? Thank you!

    • Molly Kumar October 10, 2018 (7:05 pm)

      Hi Vicki, thanks for your message and that was an error. I meant ‘Mix using spoon’ 🙂 For placement in the oven, I usually place pastries/tarts/pies in the middle rack and also keep an eye on once it’s nearing the baking time. As all ovens are different, it helps to just be extra cautious 🙂 Hope you try the recipe soon – Hugs, Molly
