It promises to now be a balmy early September but I’m ready for autumn cooking.
This apple and almond crumble is probably the most delicious I’ve made, although there will also be plum and then pear and ginger to follow.
You will need:
One large round tevsija or similar oven dish
To serve 4 people or keep in the fridge for follow-on meals and a breakfast treat with yoghurt.
4 large cooking apples – peeled and chopped
2 dessert apples – peeled and chopped
2 tsps cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract
Light brown granulated sugar – about a small cup
Put all these ingredients in a pan and simmer until the apples are soft and a little mushy.
For the topping:
1 cup of almond flour
Then half a cup of plain flour – any kind – ordinary, GF, wholemeal
1 cup of porridge oats
1 tblsp ground almonds
2 tblsps brown sugar
Vegan margarine or dairy butter – about 250g
Rub all this together until you get a rough crumbled texture.
Then add a good handful of flaked almonds and stir.
Pop the apples in the oven dish followed by the crumble topping.
Bake on a medium heat for 45 minutes.
