Apple Crumble

When I was little my mother insisted I brought my lunch box to school. I remember wishing I could just be like everybody else and eat at the cafeteria. A few years later I got what I wished for and immediately regretted it. There was no balance to a meal, students would be eating waffle fries with Chinese noodles and Thai spring rolls. My stomach hurts at the thought. I begged my mother to start making me a lunch box again and soon enough a crowd started gathering each time I unveiled what my mother had prepared that morning. Homemade sushi, homemade bread, homemade quiche, homemade apple sauce- everything was homemade. But the crowd pleaser was always the apple crumble. The secret ingredient in her recipe is almond flour. If you need a last minute dessert, this is the one to make.

Apple Crumble
Serves 8

8 apples, peeled and cut into cubes
5.5 oz (150 g) of butter, cut into small pieces and at room temperature + extra for apples and for dish
1/2 cup (50 g) of almond flour
1 1/3 (150 g) of AP flour
1/2 cup (100 g) of brown sugar
A pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to  410°F (210°F).

Cook the cubes of apples in a little bit of butter for a few minutes. Sprinkle cinnamon and mix well.
Butter a dish and place the apples. Let them cool.
In the meantime, mix the flour, almond flour, sugar, salt and butter.
Mix with your hands to obtain a granulated mixture.
Spread out the mixture on the apples.
Bake in the oven for about 20-25 min, until golden brown.

Will keep for a few days.

    1. Any specialty store will have it though I’m sure any grocery store will have it as well! It may be under the name of Almond Meal. You can also make it yourself, it’s under the Almond milk recipe (it makes almond meal at the same time).
