Hi all! I'm Rigel from Peach Macarons and I have the pleasure being Trishie's guest for todays post while she enjoys some time with her new baby. I wanted to share with you one of my most favourite and simple deserts the humble apple crumble.
There is nothing too fussy or fancy about it, it's just really yummy comfort food.
Depending on what I have in the cupboard I change some of the nuts around but I have found that hazel nuts, pecans and almonds all work really well in the crumble.
I'm also keen on using dark choc chips instead of sultanas and currants to give it an extra hit of sweetness. But you could also use blueberries, dried apricot or go with a drizzle of honey.
Personally I like to use coconut oil instead of butter as I think it really adds to the flavour. Coconut oil also has some great health benefits. The other thing I like about this recipe is that it's gluten free and low starch.
3 apples (approx. 1 apple per person)
1/3 cup sultanas and currents (or choc chips)
1/2 cup hazel nuts
1/2 cup pecans
3/4 almond meal
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp of coconut oil (or butter)
Preheat oven to 200 C. Peal and chop the apples.
Place the apples in a small oven dish and sprinkle the sultanas and currants through.
Add the crumble mixture over the top of the apples and place in the oven for approx 25- 30min or until the top is gold brown.
Serve hot with ice cream or cream.
